The spirit and passion for performance is inherent within Ford. Indeed, the company was founded as a result of Henry Ford winning races in his car “Sweepstakes”.

Currently, Ford competes in the World Endurance Championship (that includes the world famous Le Mans 24hr race) with the GT; in the World Rallycross Championship with the Focus RS and runs the UK F4 Championship with cars powered by EcoBoost engines.

Participation in these series demonstrates the passion for performance that exists within Ford – both in terms of performance on track but also for the performance cars consumers can buy.

Through our various race programmes, our engineers gain valuable experience of working with advanced materials and new ideas that augment their skills and expertise and this makes a difference to the cars you can buy.

You can find out more about all our racing activities on the global Ford Performance website.
