mountune helps turn up excitement for Fiesta and Focus ST owners in Australia
Ford Australia has this week confirmed the forthcoming availability of the much-heralded power upgrade kits, for both new Fiesta and Focus ST, from mountune Performance.
In addition to mountune’s own European sign-off process, Ford’s Australian engineers have also tested these mountune Performance products at the Lara proving ground, ensuring compliance with local market requirements.
“We’ve been working closely with the various teams within Ford to bring our approved kits to Australian ST owners for some time and this announcement is the culmination of a lot of hard work, from both sides”, says David Moore, General Manager, mountune Performance.
With the mountune kits installed, Fiesta ST power increases to 158kW at 6000rpm and torque is raised to 320Nm at 3000rpm, while Ford Focus ST power increases from 184kW/345Nm to 202kW at 5500rpm and torque is raised to 400Nm at 2750rpm.
Sold under Ford’s new FLA (Licensed Accessories Program), it means both kits are backed by a comprehensive Ford Express New Vehicle Warranty of 3 years/100,000kms when fitted at point of new vehicle sale. Kits fitted after vehicle delivery will benefit from the remainder of the warranty period, or 12-months / 20,000kms – whichever is longer.
“Our Australian R&D and product investments are paying off as we transform Ford in Australia and customers respond to our new vehicles,” says Graeme Whickman, President and CEO, Ford of Australia. “We think our new mountune Performance packs will bring even more excitement as we expand our performance vehicle lineup as part of plans to launch 20 new vehicles by 2020.” Kits will be available from Ford dealers in Australia by mid-year, priced at $2328 for the Fiesta ST MP215 and $4135 for the Focus ST MP275 upgrade, respectively. Prospective customers should contact their local Ford dealer for more information, or to place their order.

Motorbase Performance has ignited an ambitious challenge on the 2016 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship confirming Mat Jackson’s return to the squad alongside 2013 champion Andrew Jordan.
2016 marks Jackson’s seventh consecutive year with the Wrotham-based squad after a sensational return to the BTCC grid for the second half of the 2015 season that saw Jackson and Motorbase amass an incredible seven independent race wins, four outright wins and four further podiums in just four race weekends.
Running under the Motorbase Performance banner for the 2016 campaign, Jackson returns to the grid in the #7 mountune-powered Ford Focus ST with backing from DUO and completes David Bartrum’s formidable driver line-up partnered with new signing Andrew Jordan in the #77 Pirtek Racing Focus.
David Bartrum, Motorbase Performance Team Principal commented; “We're obviously delighted to have Mat back on board for his seventh year with us. Hopefully the number 7 will prove to be our lucky number this year with Mat racing back under his number 7 and Andrew as 77!
“We've known Mat for a long time and enjoyed one of our best periods together at the end of last season so the aim now is to carry that momentum on into this year and to focus on challenging at the front as soon as the first flag drops. There’s work to be done, particularly around the new suspension, but I can honestly say that if I was asked to pair two drivers together then Mat and Andrew would be my first choice all day long. They both tested with us at the end of last year and worked well together; there’s a great dynamic between them so I'm looking forward to seeing how they will bounce off of each other’s experience as time goes on.
Mat Jackson said; “It is great to be returning with Motorbase for 2016 and to be able to carry on from last year’s performance and mount our assault on the championship. I have to say huge thanks to DUO and to Motorbase for their continued loyalty and it’s fantastic to be able to bring DUO in for a full season this year."
We are pleased to announce our involvement with Dextra Racing in the 2016 British Touring Car Championship. Run by Leicestershire based Team Parker, Dextra will run the same Motorbase Performance built Ford Focus ST as last year with some new upgrades, including our mountune 2.0 EcoBoost engine that made the headlines during the 2015 season.
In a video interview at the Autosport Show last month when talking of the Ford Focus and the mountune upgrade, team driver Alex Martin stated that his car will be “identical to Jordan’s” that he knows “the engine is competitive”.
Having now had an opportunity to test last season’s Focus with the new mountune Ford EcoBoost engine fitted, Martin’s clearly pleased with the results; "It’s always a struggle trying to get the power down in a front-wheel drive car, but the new engine is so smooth in how it delivers the power, I can already see how it’s going to massively improve the car. By some amazing feat of engineering, mountune have also managed to completely eradicate any sign of turbo lag too!"
Martin stated that this year, the car has been built to handle more like a touring car of old, and that he is looking forward to the more traditional driving style. Combine that with our mountune NGTC four-cylinder engine and there could be some serious points scored this season.
Already we’re talking about Ford Fair and are pleased to announce that once again, mountune will be headlining Europe's biggest Ford event, being held at Silverstone on Sunday, August 7th.
In our 6th year of being headline sponsor, we’re upping our game and taking things one step further with a host of performance cars and famous faces on our stand and in action on the day, including former BTCC champion and Motorbase Performance / Pirtek Racing's Mr Andrew Jordan.
Phil Weeden, Kelsey Media MD stated, "We’re delighted to have mountune back on board as our headline sponsor for Ford Fair at Silverstone. It’s great to be partnering this event with a respected brand like mountune, which has justifiably earned its position as a market leading specialist in the Ford aftermarket”.
The headline sponsorship of Ford’s biggest European show will form part of a multi-year deal between mountune and Kelsey and will allow our marketing team to build on our existing success with even more exciting features and must-see additions to the show.
