New Ford Fiesta R5 2019 – Test Day

Even before Ford driver Eric Camilli was allowed to take a seat behind the wheel of the new Ford Fiesta R5, another driver came to the train, the fewest expected in the silver prototype of M Sport: None other than the current championship second in the Formula 1 – Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas – was allowed to complete the first asphalt test of the new generation of the Fiesta R5. The new Ford Fiesta R5 has outwardly more in common with the new production models, on which the current Fiesta WRC is based. In addition, should know a lot and maybe parts of the WRC have wandered into the R5.

Incidentally, the competition is not to be despised in the important R5 customer sport: The Volkswagen Polo R5 has only just completed the first rallies in customer hands and the new Skoda Fabia R5 has just been unveiled.
