However it is not the capacity that we were hoping. There will be no Rally America for Marcus, but Pikes Peak is another matter all together. Former WRC champion will be fitted into a brand new Ford Fiesta RS for the climb. The Fiesta is not due in the states for another year, but it is a hot little car that is bound to grab attention. Marcus has run one WRC event this year and put up excellent pace in the Prodrive Subaru. There are talks of another WRC rally to come this year for rally, but at the moment Pikes Peak is the only thing on his radar.
This is all the more reason we need to get to Colorado. All of the drivers that compete in the event are world class, but to have a WRC champion who is still at the top of his game will make for a spectacle to be seen. The new Fiesta is a model similar to that of the Focus and should be launching next summer with a Rally spec model that will be ready for the stages.
