New Arena Motorsport Ford Focus Touring Car - Web Exclusive

Developed by Arena Motorsport with technical support from Ford, it is the first car to emerge from a global initiative by Ford to support private teams around the globe in developing one common race car to S2000 specification.

Mar 2, 2011

The world's first touring race car based on Ford's all-new Focus makes its debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, just weeks before it is scheduled to appear on the track for the first time in the British Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch.

Developed by Arena Motorsport with technical support from Ford, it is the first car to emerge from a global initiative by Ford to support private teams around the globe in developing one common race car to S2000 specification. The first application appears on the track only a few weeks after the road-going Ford Focus will be on sale to customers across Europe and North America.

Arena Motorsport's UK-based Team Aon has been a successful long-term competitor in the British Touring Car series with a version of the previous Focus ST model. Just 18 months after their first race with this car, the team and driver Tom Chilton secured both the 2010 Independent Teams' Championship and Independent Drivers' Championship titles in the UK.

The new Team Aon Focus touring car is expected to compete in all 10 rounds of the 2011 British Touring Car Championship.

Its specification includes running in the 2011 season with a turbocharged 2.0-liter Ford engine to meet current local regulations, rather than the 1.6-liter Ford EcoBoost engine other teams will use in Championships in line with international FIA regulations.
