Fiesta to Go to World Challenge
Jul 22, 2013 update to the Ford Fiesta project car
Capaldi Racing is going to go through it beforehand, so we shipped the car their way to Chesterfield, Michigan. It was the best solution for us, considering much of our staff were away at three big events this past weekend: the Ultimate Track Car Challenge at Virginia International Raceway, The Hawk at Road America and the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix.
Look for details of our prerace preparations in an upcoming issue of Grassroots Motorsports.
