Ford to Race Globally with Focus ST EcoBoost

Ford is back on the track! And with a Focus ST!
Not only will Ford be racing in America, but also into the global racing scene. This means that the American automaker will build a team of highly qualified and highly passionate engineers and mechanics to help the team succeed in 2011.
World Touring Car Championship, the China Touring Car Championship, and the returning Japanese Touring Car Championship are the major races that the Focus will be attending. As far as Endurance racing, such as the 24 Hours of Nürburgring, the ST will be on the list of tracks to show that they have the right stuff to help the automaker boost sales since been in quite a slump.
The model will be based on the Ford Focus ST and will be powered by Ford’s EcoBoost engine technology. The first race appearance for the touring Focus is aimed for the 2011 British Touring Car Championship.
