One day before his twenty-sixth birthday, Antony Warmbold tested a Ford Focus WRC 03 during a practice session organized by M-Sport. After a briefing with Mark Higgins, the official test and development driver for M-Sport, Antony went on the car and drives about 80 kilometers. Very quickly the German driver assimilated how to handle this Ford Focus WRC 03 and adapted his way of driving to the requirements of this very efficient car. Completely satisfied with this very exciting day, Antony Warmbold left immediately for Finland, where he will race the Pirelli Rally in Tampere then the mythical Neste Finland Rally at the wheel of his Ford Focus WRC 02.

Antony Warmbold: " It was really interesting to drive this car, thanks a lot to M-Sport to have let me do this test. I was especially impressed by the grip of this car, it is incredible! The way of driving is consequently completely different, the car is much more efficient. With the Ford Focus WRC03 you have to keep the line and to be very smooth with the car, which respond very well. I hope that I could use this car in competition one day. Now I must concentrate myself on the Neste Finland Rally, one of the great moments of the season. To prepare it we are going to race the Pirelli Rally in Tampere."
