Ford Focus WRC. Ex-Colin McRaeAdvert ID: 45801 To Be Auctioned
Ford Focus WRC. Ex-Colin McRae 'Y4 FMC' - built by M-Sport for the legendary Colin McRae and an important part of rally history.
Freshly built for the Acropolis Rally, Round 7 of the 2001 World Rally Championship, Ford Focus RS #Y4 FMC took Colin McRae and Nicky Grist to a maiden win
A closely fought contest at Round 10 in New Zealand resulted in Colin and Nicky taking Y4 FMC to 2nd overall and still within sight of the 2001 World Championship
With Colin enjoying the lead in his home rally, the Network Q Rally of Great Britain, Y4 FMC was launched into a spectacular series of rolls on SS4 (Rhonda 1) costing him his second World Championship and handing the title to the late Richard Burns
The car was subsequently rebuilt by M-Sport and went onto further rallying success before being retired and returned to its iconic 2001 livery for posterity
Recently returned from a top rally specialist who has gone through the Focus from top to bottom
Historically important, this special rally car forms a part of the story of one of Britain's most talented and much loved rally drivers
