Maciej Woda, M-Sport Poland Board Member, said:
“The Fiesta Rally3 Trophy is a totally new one-make series that I hope will help reward and encourage the next generation of drivers that are destined for the top of our sport. At M-Sport Poland we are in contact with drivers on a daily basis. One make series were once the core of M-Sport Poland’s business and I remember the thrill and excitement of seeing so many talented drivers from a variety of backgrounds. It became apparent to us that with the popularity of the Fiesta Rally3, there needed to be a supported trophy style competition to help highlight who we should be supporting in the near future. We are seeing some incredible results from the Fiesta Rally3 Evo at the moment, I am sure the entrants for next year’s Fiesta Rally3 Trophy will keep on adding to that list.”
