Along the way, it will visit some of the world’s most historic rallycross tracks, while introducing two exciting new challenges in the shape of Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit and the legendary Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. Following its successful debut last year, Silverstone’s Speedmachine Festival returns on May 25 26.

GCK announce 2019 FIA World Rallycross line up

FIA World Rallycross Championship team GC KOMPETITION (GCK), founded by French athlete Guerlain Chicherit, proudly announces its participation in the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship with two permanent teams.

GCK entered their debut season in 2018 with two brand-new Renault Megane R.S. RX, before expanding the team
to three vehicles at the USA and Germany WRX events. Building upon this successful debut season GCK will now
expand their operations to include four permanent drivers in the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship.

Returning as GC KOMPETITION team mate to team owner Chicherit in the GCK Megane R.S. RX is Swedish
European Rallycross Champion Anton Marklund.
Joining the GCK squad for 2019 as part of the all new GCK Academy team are RX2 Champion Cyril Raymond
(FRA) and RX2 Vice Champion Guillaume De Ridder (BEL) who will campaign a 2019 evolution of the successful

GCK Renault Clio R.S. RX.

GCK has appointed French engineering company FORS Performance to facilitate all WRX race operations from
2019 for both teams. Chicherit created the ‘GCK Academy’ team with a vision to further young rallycross talent and support junior drivers, giving them the opportunity to compete on a world championship motorsport stage. Having witnessed the growth of the FIA World Rallycross Championship and the increasing difficulties junior drivers face to develop in World Championship cars, Chicherit decided to start the GCK Academy, entering his GCK Clio R.S. RX into World
RX and adding 2 talented young race drivers to the GCK family.

Chicherit commented: «2019 is a really big year for GCK. We debuted the team in the FIA World Rallycross
Championship in 2018 and have been working really hard to further develop the GCK Megane R.S. RX, the first car to have been designed and built from scratch to compete in rallycross. To now enter the Championship with 4 cars is a big step. It allows me to compete in the GCK Megane R.S. RX alongside Anton who I’ve been working with closely over the last few months but also to support two super talented junior drivers in Cyril and Guillaume to develop in a World Championship driving the GCK Clio R.S. RX. I’m really excited to see what the season will bring.»

Returning to the GCK Megane RS RX for 2019 Anton Marklund commented:
«I’ve already been in contact with GCK since July 2018. This means we have already had a lot of time to work
together towards the upcoming season. First, I raced the GCK Mégane in the last 3 races of the 2018 season and
worked with Guerlain to further put together a development list for the car.
Then FORS Performance offered me to help them develop the GCK Clio during the winter which means I got to spend a lot of time and work closely with the team operating the cars this year.
With all those opportunities ahead of this season, Ialready feel very much at home in the team. I’m sure that with
the development and preparations we all have done during the winter, we have a good chance to race for top spots
in the 2019 season. I want to thank Guerlain and Bilstein for their trust and support and can’t wait to get the season
started!»

Following a successful 2018 rookie season in the FIA European Rallycross Championship, Cyril Raymond is
aiming to consistently compete for top six positions and work closely with his new team mate to bring success to
the GCK Academy programme. Cyril commented:
«My vision for 2019 is to improve my driving in supercars and to be a good teammate. I would like to show my
potential behind the wheel but also in the paddock at work. My target is to be in the final of the every race.

Joining GCK Academy is a really important moment of my career. I have finally become a race driver of the FIA World Rallycross Championship! It’s a dream come true. I’ll never forget this moment.»

Completing the GCK Academy roster, Belgium’s Guillaume De Ridder was identified by Guerlain Chicherit as a future World Rallycross star from when they both raced in RX2 during 2017. Throughout 2018, the GCK owner monitored De Ridder closely with the intention of presenting a Supercar opportunity to the Belgian.

Excited by the opportunity, Guillaume commented:
«Joining the GCK Academy is an incredible opportunity for me ! Being selected as one of the two junior drivers
representing the team is an awesome recognition. It has been many years now that I have been working so hard
and have given everything I had (sometimes even more than that!) in order to reach the highest level in motorsport, so it is finally a dream come true ! I would like to thank Guerlain Chicherit and all the GCK team for the opportunity they are giving me and I will work even harder to show them they have made the right choice. I am extremely excited and I can’t wait to start working with such a professional and ambitious team!»

NOBRE’S OPEN-BOOT POLICY IN THE ERC

Paulo Nobre completed stage five of Rally di Roma Capitale with his car boot open.

The FIA European Rally Championship regular from Brazilian explained that he forgot to close it properly prior to the run.

“I took out the [safety] helmets and forgot to close the boot so I make one special stage with the boot open so it was the opposite to Poland [when it was the bonnet that was open].”

THE ALL-NEW FORD FIESTA R5

THE ALL-NEW FORD FIESTA R5

THE ALL-NEW FORD FIESTA R5

M-Sport and Ford are proud to introduce the all-new EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta R5. Replacing its hugely successful predecessor, the new Fiesta promotes the latest motorsport technology and road-going design.

Based on the Ford Fiesta ST-Line which is manufactured at Ford’s world-class facility in Cologne, M‑Sport has worked closely with the Ford Motor Company to ensure the new Fiesta R5 provides a big step forward in terms of pace and performance.

The original Fiesta R5 is M-Sport’s most successful global rally car and continues to win stages, rallies and championships worldwide. With more than 250 cars in competition, the outgoing Fiesta remains a capable and competitive winner, but its successor boasts improvements in all areas.

The 1.6 turbo charged engine delivers 290 BHP and 475 Nm of torque at 4,000 RPM. The direct injection power plant is also fitted with a 32mm restrictor in conjunction with R5 regulations and provides a significant improvement in response and drivability

Brand-new suspension components include front and rear McPherson struts with redesigned three‑way adjustable dampers from Reiger. The new aluminium damper bodies save considerable weight, and the geometry has been remodelled for optimised traction and stability.

A newly designed Sadev five-speed sequential gearbox mated to front and rear differential units is accompanied by hydraulic servo-assisted rack and pinion steering, and Brembo forged four-piston front and rear calipers provide the stopping power.

The initial design and development started in January 2018, with the first test session taking place in December that same year. Since then, eight test drivers have completed more than 30 days testing on a mix of different roads and conditions.

Smooth Tarmac, rough Tarmac, hot gravel, loose gravel, seasoned test drivers, rally winners, and even Formula One race winners – the latest Fiesta has been put through its paces and no stone has been left unturned in search of optimum speed, reliability and performance.

The project also upholds M-Sport’s support of young talent with 28-year-old Bernardo Fernandes – who engineered Sébastien Ogier to championship success in 2017 – leading the team.

Delving into his knowledge of the award-winning Ford Fiesta WRC, as well as the original Fiesta R5, Fernandes’ experience has been combined with the innovation of youth – his team creating one of M-Sport’s most long-awaiting and exciting creations.

Just like its predecessor, the all-new Fiesta R5 will get its first public outing at next month’s Ypres Rally – Éric Camilli taking to the wheel as the event’s VIP car. As one of the most experienced development drivers around, Camilli knows the car inside out and the event’s fast asphalt roads provide the perfect setting for the car’s debut performance.

More information on the all-new Fiesta R5 can be found in the Technical Specification, and those wishing to make an order are encouraged to contact M-Sport’s dedicated Sales Team at the following email address: R5Support@M‑Sport.co.uk

M-Sport Managing Director, Malcolm Wilson OBE, said:

“The Ford Fiesta R5 is our most successful global rally car. It’s a very special car for M-Sport and even though the original cars continue to win rallies and championships all over the world, we have taken our time to ensure this new model is even better with performance gains in every area.

“The test programme has been extensive, and we have worked hard to ensure this new car suits every level of driver. We have quite literally travelled the world – testing on a wide range of surfaces, in varying conditions and with a whole host of drivers taking to the wheel. This car is extremely important to us, and its adaptability is vital to its success.

“I’m extremely proud of this project. As a company we have always promoted young talent, and the design and development of the all-new Fiesta R5 was headed by one of our most ambitious young engineers – Bernardo Fernandes.

“We’ve always given opportunities to youngsters who show a real drive and passion for what they do. Bernardo is a prime example of this, and having driven the car myself I can tell you that he and his team have done a fantastic job. I’m looking forward to seeing the all-new Ford Fiesta R5 in action, and hope to secure even more success!”

Ford Performance Senior Manager, Gerard Quinn, said:

“This is another important milestone for Ford as the introduction of the all-new Ford Fiesta R5 heralds the introduction of the latest in motorsport technology packaged into Europe’s best-selling car in its category.

“Ford investment in the new Fiesta R2 revealed earlier this year and the latest Fiesta R5 ensures that we are supporting a sustainable future in rally for competitors and our partners M-Sport.

“This new Fiesta R5 also enables us to provide a high-quality replacement for its remarkably successful predecessor which was introduced six years ago. In the past two seasons the Fiesta R5 has won more than 40 championships globally, and we are looking forward to much more success with this latest model.”

M-Sport Rally Engineer, Bernardo Fernandes, said:

“This was my first time heading up a project. It was a challenge, but also a real privilege to be given the responsibility. The outgoing Ford Fiesta R5 was so successful, and is still very competitive in the right hands, but we have taken our time to revise and improve every area of the car.

“The R5 category has always been extremely competitive and the biggest challenge is in finding the best compromise between cost and performance. We had a lot of previous experience that helped, and devised a rigorous test programme with a range of different surfaces and drivers.

“The whole team have worked exceptionally hard and we pushed every element to the limit in search of peak performance and reliability. I also need to say a special thanks to Richard Christensen who headed up the design team – his input was integral to the project and we couldn’t have done it without him.

“Overall, I’m confident that we’ve taken a significant step forward and I’m looking forward to seeing what the all-new Ford Fiesta R5 can deliver in the hands of our customers.”
