The FRD Motorsport-built Ford Focus TCR had its baptism of fire last weekend at Singapore. In the hands of Martin Cao, the Focus run without major issues throughout the weekend and eventually finished both race in 13th and 12th positions.
“We are pleased with the results. The car successfully completed both races and all the sessions while showing constant improvement. All the testing in the world would not simulate true racing conditions and, in this respect, I think our car passed with flying colours. Finishing close to the points position on our debut event showed that the FRD Ford Focus TCR has great potential. Our race pace was encouraging, but most importantly we identified areas in need of improvement, so we will continue to work hard these coming days to refine our car for Sepang and for our customers," said Kenneth Ma, president of FRD.
