Two teams supported by M-Sports will contest the 2003 Rallye Monte Carlo.

AW Rally Team
Driver: Antony Warmbold (D)
Co driver: Gemma Price (GB)
Vehicle: Y3 FMC (Ford Focus WRC02)

Newcomer, 24 year-old Antony Warmbold, aims to compete in as many world rally events this season as are logistically possible. Son of former Mazda team Director, Achim Warmbold, Antony is looking forward to beginning his first 'full' WRC season with co-driver 21-year-old Briton, Gemma Price. " We have been able to complete around 100km of testing last week in the French Alps. I am very impressed with the car's performance. It is much better than any car I have driven before and I was delighted to find a good base set-up for my driving style. Gemma and I are very much looking forward to getting the rally underway. However we are realistic about our chances and our goal is to compete cleanly and gain as much experience as possible," At present their 2003 WRC programme consists of thirteen rounds, missing out the Rally of Australia.

Euromotor
Driver: Philippe Roux (CH)
Co driver: Paul Corthay (CH)
Vehicle: P10 FFC (Ford Focus WRC01)

6 Italian team Euromotor have had a brief but very successful three-year partnership with M-Sport and this continues with selected World, European and Italian rally championship events this season. This, their first outing for 2003, is with Switzerland's' Philippe Roux. Philippe's first outing with Euromotor led him to a brilliant 2nd overall in last years Valais Rally, behind the would-be runner-up of the European Rally Championship Janusz Kulig. Euromotor have received much acclaim for their many victories with Ford Focus WRC's over the past two years and have a reputation for thorough preparation and very competitive vehicles. As well as a number of private customers last year, they also ran Ford Rallye Sport's Markko Märtin in the 2002 EOS Rally of Estonia and Francois Duval in the 2002 Ypres Rally.
