M-Sport Ford Puma Rally1 Racers Get New Livery For 2024

The M-Sport Ford rally team got a bit of a makeover in more ways than one ahead of the 2023 season, debuting a new livery for the Puma Rally1 racer and a revamped driver lineup to boot. After a bit of an up and down season, more changes are on the horizon heading into the upcoming 2024 season as well – most notably, another driver lineup change highlighted by the departure of the highly successful Ott Tänak. Now, M-Sport Ford has revealed yet another new look for its Puma Rally1 racer lineup to accompany those changes, too.

Many longtime M-Sport Ford fans will likely recognize the racer’s new livery for the upcoming 2024 FIA World Rally Championship season – which kicks off later this month at Rally Monte-Carlo – as it’s inspired by some vintage machines from The Blue Oval’s checkered rally racing past, such as the MKII Escort and Sierra Cosworth.

“This year’s livery brings together old and new,” said M-Sport Ford Team Principal Richard Millener. “Taking inspiration from the old Sierra Cosworth and MKII Escorts in the mid-late 1980s, the design combines bold blue striping on a predominantly white body with the Puma’s characteristic lightning bolt style. I think the livery will be a new favorite amongst long-standing Ford and M-Sport fans, it’s always special to reference heritage liveries.”

In the 2024 WRC season, the M-Sport Ford driver lineup will consist of Adrien Fourmaux and Alex Coria, as well as Grégoire Munster and Louis Louka, all of whom will compete in the Puma Hybrid Rally1. Fourmaux and Munster are moving up after spending last season in the Rally1 and WRC2 ranks, and will now tackle the full WRC schedule in the forthcoming year.
