David versus Goliath. We know the Ford Puma ST has decent acceleration . It’s also fast in corners and the handling feels pretty direct for a crossover. It’s small, nimble, and agile - all the things you could also say for a radio-controlled car. The resemblances between the ST and an RC are so big that Ford decided to make a David versus Goliath race to promote its first performance SUV model for Europe. In a new video, the Puma ST meets a 1/10 scale Puma ST RC model on a track. The crossover has to make a single lap around the 1.18-mile (1.9-kilometer) Brands Hatch Indy Circuit with rally star Louise Cook behind the steering wheel.

Optional carbon fiber 20-inch wheels will be offered in two different finishes. As had been rumored , the 2017 Ford GT supercar will shave even more weight thanks to carbon fiber wheels. Compared to the car’s standard forged aluminum wheels, each optional carbon 20-inch wheel is about two pounds lighter, which Ford says reduces rotational inertia by 25 percent.

In addition to saving ever-important pounds, Ford says that the carbon wheels help damp vibrations that can cause road noise or a stiffer ride. Primarily, though, for a supercar like the Ford GT, the benefit is in reducing unsprung mass for the benefit of acceleration, braking, and handling. Ford GT buyers will be able to select their carbon wheels either in a matte finish or with a glossy clearcoat. Of course, many aspiring purchasers won’t be able to buy a … [Read more...] about 2017 Ford GT carbon fiber wheels save 2 pounds each
The Belgian, who will work as an external technical adviser, officially joined the Alzenau-based squad this week. The move brings to an end a successful 19-year spell Loriaux enjoyed with former employer M-Sport Ford who has already started the process of trying to shore up its research and development operations by recruiting a senior designer. In his role with Hyundai Motorsport, Loriaux will spearhead the development of its 2022 hybrid-powered Rally1 car. Hyundai was the last of the three World Rally Championship teams to receive the go-ahead for work to begin on the project. After weeks of uncertainty, confirmation to proceed with the i20 N-based car only came from the company’s board back in March.
