That would be great for the manufacturers title if Ford can get all their chargers in the top 6.

Hopefully they will dominate the Australian rally Championship too, if they join next year.

Yeah, I wonder if they will. That would be good but I reckon Ford want to concentrarte on V8 supercars rather than ARC.

Maybe in a few years if the Focus and BARRA sell well then they could.

Has it been confirmed that they actually will compete in the ARC?

Not yet.. Would be good but I think they should concentrate on getting the V8's right before branching out.

Ford can't lose? Wasn't McRae leading a rally until a roll saw him bomb out of the lead? Don't count your chickens yet, it is rallying...

yeah.....i think it's a good call for FOA to concentrate on V8s. The Focus' activities in the WRC should be sufficient involvement for the car in motorsport to begin with.
