Innovative in its radical styling, the evolution version of the successful Focus RS, winner of 11 world rallies since its debut in 1999, will make its competition debut on the fourth round of the 2003 FIA World Rally Championship, the Rally New Zealand, on 10-13 April. The new Focus RS is radically different in both looks and mechanics to the car which competed on the opening three rounds of the 2003 championship.

Technical director Christian Loriaux and his engineering team at M-Sport, the company which operates Ford's world rally programme, have added significant performance improvements to the most dependable and reliable car in the championship and a stunning new aerodynamic package gives the Focus RS an eye-catching contemporary look.

At its debut, the RS 03, proved right on pace, but it was let down by reliability problems. In its third rally, the Greek round of the championshop, luck was on Ford's side and the RS 03 scored its maiden victory. It was also the first World Rally Championship win for its driver Markko Martin.
