The professional drifter, rally driver, and TV host Tanner Foust will get an all-new toy to play with at the 2011 Rallycorss season.

Developed by the Swedish Olsbergs MSE team, the new Ford Fiesta Rallycross gets 600 hp and AWD system. It is similar to the one he used for European and American competition in 2010. He will use this updated weapon to take on FIA European Rallycross 2011. Tanner’s the first American in the series.

“It is great to fly the American flag overseas and when it comes down to it, it’s driver against driver,” said Foust. “The real pleasure I get out of it is bringing this sport to the US and showing people at home how cool this sport is and how much potential it has.” He was an immediate threat in a limited 2010 European Rallycross campaign that took him to Portugal, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany, and Czech Republic.
