Wierdest debut ever: Mini John Cooper Works Countryman

    To be fair, Ford very rarely activate their WRC programme through their general marketing of the roadcars.
    When was the last time you saw a Focus or Fiesta car launch at a Frankfurt or Geneva that did this?

    They just yesterday launched the 1.6l turbo Fiesta ST yesterday in Geneva without a mention of the WRc programme.

    Hm, does it signal a new trend, the one in which big marques will try to hide their motorsport activities? With what you said about Ford it certainly feels like it to an extent.
