Top Gear USA host Tanner Foust will take the covers off of his new 2011 rallycross Ford Fiesta at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham, UK. Foust will campaign the Rockstar-etnies Fiesta with the support of Swedish Olsbergs MSE team in the European Rallycross Championship as he makes a run for the title in 2011. He is the first American to compete in the FIA European Rallycross Championship.
“It is great to fly the American flag overseas and when it comes down to it, it’s driver against driver,” said Foust. “The real pleasure I get out of it is bringing this sport to the US and showing people at home how cool this sport is and how much potential it has.”
In a limited 2010 European Rallycross campaign, Foust got a taste of the race that took him to Portugal, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany, and Czech Republic.
“I got a taste of it last year and I’m looking forward to battling it out again in 2011,” said Foust. “I’m really enjoying it: the series is very competitive, and the fans are educated and enthusiastic.”
The 2011 Rockstar-etnies Ford Fiesta produces 600-hp all-wheel-drive rallycross car developed by the Swedish Olsbergs MSE team.
