Ford Sets New WRC Victory Record After Latavala Wins In New Zealand

After Jari-Matti Latvala and Miikka Anttila's win at the Rally New Zealand, Ford now tops the all-time win list, passing up a record that has stood since 1992. The two Finns drove their Ford Focus RS World Rally Car through a demanding three-day mixed surface race and won by just 2.4 seconds. This win also extended Ford's record-breaking run of consecutive point finishes to 124. With this win, Ford now lies five points behind the lead of the manufacturer's championship, and Latvala sits in second in the drivers' standings after five of thirteen rounds in the series. Gerard Quinn, Ford of Europe's motorsport chief, said: "Twenty different manufacturers have enjoyed the prestige of a WRC event victory. Ford is fortunate enough to have stood on the top step of the podium on 75 occasions. The legendary Escort, the Sierra and now the Focus, which is still winning in its 12th and final season as Ford's WRC challenger, have all contributed to a remarkable record and I hope there are many more wins to come."
