NGK-sponsored M-Sport victory bid thwarted in Argentina

Tuesday, May 07, 2019

The NGK-sponsored M-Sport-Sport Ford World Rally Team’s Elfyn Evans and Scott Martin were left disappointed in their bid for victory at the World Rally Championship (WRC) Rally Argentina. Locked in a battle for second place, their EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta WRC car which is fitted with NGK spark plugs and NTK Lambda sensors, hit a boulder and was forced to retire.

Teammates Teemu Suninen and Marko Salminen, however, managed to bring home their Ford Fiesta WRC in seventh place. Teemu commented, “This has been a difficult rally for me and I’m sorry for the team that we didn’t perform as well as we wanted. We know that we have a good car and we want to be pushing for better results. But at least we finished the rally and got some good experience for the future. Now, I’m looking forward to Chile and to seeing what we can do there.”

Mark Hallam, Marketing Manager, NGK Spark Plugs said, “It was a frustrating rally for the team in gruelling conditions but I’m sure M-Sport will be working hard to be competitive again in Chile where hopefully they will once again compete for a podium position.”
