NEW 2016 MERCH

Our in-house design team have been busy working on a range of new apparel for this summer season with new mountune Tee's, hoodies and snapbacks about to drop.  

You may remember we ran a competition at the back end last year, which Tiego Azevedo from Portugal won after he sent us this cool 'blended’ design, which is available in both a black and white tee. We’ve also added the cool RS themed tee you see here offering a choice of wording to suit your style.

Made from 100% cotton, and displaying the usual mountune branding, these new tee's will be available to purchase online mid April, with the hoodies and hats following shortly afterwards

2016 BTCC Season Opener

The 2016 BTCC season got underway this weekend at Brands Hatch as no less than eight mountune-powered cars contensted the 1.2-mile Indy circuit.

Motorbase Performance’s 2016 BTCC campaign started strong as the team secured four top eight finishes during the championship’s season opener this weekend at the Brands Hatch Indy circuit.

Team drivers Andrew Jordan and Mat Jackson both took several top-5 finishes during the 3 races on Sunday leaving the Wrotham-based team sitting in second place in both the overall team standings and independent team standings.

mountune-sponsored Jackson added; "We're making great progress with the car since adopting the new regulation suspension changes and of course, my mountune engine performed faultlessly throughout the weekend".

Jordan and Jackson currently sit in 3rd and 5th respectively in the independent drivers’ championship, with Jordan joint-4th overall.



Elsewhere, turning a wheel in anger for the very first time were the quartet of mountune-powered Subaru Levorg's.

With the paint barely dry on the brand new Subaru builds the opening round was always going to be more of a glorified test day than anything else, but against the odds as well as collecting valuable data, former-champion's Jason Plato and Colin Turkington both managed to secure the teams' first championship points.

“Everyone at Team BMR deserves a huge amount of credit for what they have achieved here. To build these four cars and get them here running in the tail end of the points is superhuman. I have said all weekend that we weren’t concerned about results because it has been all about building up our knowledge and developing the car." Plato enthused.

Donington Park hosts rounds 4, 5 and 6 on the 16th/17th April.

In addition, a Cat Back Exhaust upgrade is now also available that drops back-pressure, liberates some additional noise but crucially, will not affect your base vehicle warranty!

Our mountune Cat Back Exhaust and MR300 power upgrade kit are both available now through our official Ford Dealer and re-seller network, or directly via our online store.

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.
