Longstanding customer, M-Sport has had our pulses racing during this year’s World Rally Championships, with some great performances from its Ford World Rally team. Both EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta WRCs – featuring SPAL’s cooling technology - finished inside the overall top-five at the most recent leg, Rally Chile.
Weight saving is the Holy Grail
We’re proud that M-Sport was one of the first to adopt SPAL’s latest brushless fans for its Ford Fiesta WRCs and that former racing champion and Managing Di rector, Malcolm Wilson puts his faith in our expertise. Malcolm says, “The brushless fans are more efficient, the fact that they save weight is the Holy Grail for us on competition cars.”
At the end of the day, it’s all about efficiency. From a design point of view, it’s about better cooling, less weight and more power; from a production point of view, M-Sport is looking for fuel economy and reduced emissions. If you carry less fuel, you carry less weight.
The next leg of the World Rally Championships will be the Vodafone Rally de Portugal at the end of this month. M-Sport is hoping for a position on the podium this time – and we wish them the best of luck!
