The rallycross season 2014 is over after a year of great and exciting development in all the major series. Ford Olsbergs MSE puts a very successful season behind them and has fought for the top spots and won titles in all the big series, World RX, GRC and STCC.
Their Ford Fiesta ST has proved to be one of the strongest, with top results, in all series. Now two of their Fiesta SuperCars is for sale.
This part of the year is off-season, but for the teams and Olsbergs MSE the work starts now with developing and changes before the 2015 season.
In 2014 Olsbergs MSE has run one of the biggest rallycross operations ever, and have had up to 10 Supercars to start on two continents the same weekend.
They are also one of the biggest “factories” for new building and development of cars, and since 2005 they have finished 4 Fiesta MK6 and the 22nd MK7 Fiesta is just finished.
Two of this year’s competing cars in GRC are now for sale. Car number 17 and number 7.
– Car number 17 is the car Nelson Piquet Jr. has been driving this year and, Patrik Sandell drove last year when it was first build. Number 7 is my old favourite, this year driven by Brian Deegan but with major updates, the car was previously run by myself and Tanner Foust in the European Rallycross Championship, Both cars are well developed and have proven parts.
They can be supplied with various updates, or customized to customers specifications requests, says CEO of Olsbergs MSE, Andreas Eriksson. We have already sold two of this year’s GRC cars a to new owners: – Joni Wiman winning car and Patrik Sandells car will both get new owners next year.
In the start of January all Olsbergs MSE cars are back in Sweden, and gathered in the workshop in Nynashamn: – We take all cars back home to give them the best possible review before 2015 season. New cars are built, and we do updates on all cars to meet the new season in the best possible way, says Eriksson who looks bright at the future:
– I have a long-term goal be a part of the developing of the sport. A lot has happened in several areas in recent years, and the interest for rallycross is now growing rapidly, says
One of the new portals into the sport is the new recruiting class SuperCar Lites.
FIA WorldRX driver Andreas Bakkerud tested SuperCar Lites in the last round of Global Rallycross in Las Vegas, and is full of praise: – I am absolutely sure SuperCar Lites within short time will be the way in for the young drivers who want to drive Supercars in WorldRX or GRC.
– It happens very much positive about Lites now, and interest at autumn test days has been very good. The cars is built by Avitas Motorsport in Turkey but finished and final tested in Sweden or America by Olsbergs MSE. We have new cars ready for delivery, but also used cars available in both Europe and the USA, ends Andreas Eriksson.
