Ford Racing‘s All Access video series is back with a look at another one of its top teams at Olsbergs MSE‘s Rally Shop in Sweden. Former World Rally Championship driver Andreas Eriksson now runs Olsbergs MSE (OMSE) instead of racing, he and the company’s 46 employees are building Ford vehicles from scratch.
A lot of work goes into constructing each one, and according to Eriksson, it takes more than 400 hours to complete each body. As a result Eriksson shows the different aspects of the shop floor where his fleet of Fiesta’s are built, including components such as gearboxes to car wraps and graphics. Eriksson also provides a look at what he refers to as, “the cave,” the area where everything is built. The Fiestas pass through this area for everything from repairs and tires to engine testing inside the dyno room.
We also get a sneak peak at the crew quarters where if things are so busy the technicians have the ability to sleep in apartments that are on premises or eat in the OMSE canteen.
By the time Andreas and his OMSE team is finished, a rallycross car might resemble a Fiesta ST on the outside, but as you can see in the video, it’s a completely different beast underneath.
