Benetton B194 

1994 proved to be a victorious year for Ford in engine supply at the prestigious Formula One Championship. Rory Byrne, Ross Brawn, and Nicholas Tombazis built the machine to meet the new regulations after the ban on electronic driver aid. Michael Schumacher proved his and the engine’s talent when he tamed the Ford-powered Benetton beast into the ground with a massive win. This marked Ford’s only F1 win and Benetton’s first drivers’ title win.

Falcon  

The Australian Falcon V8 supercar super-stormed into the global arena in the 2000s through the intense rivalry – Ford Vs. Holden. The drivers and the cars started getting attention from all around. The Falcon won 6 drivers’ championships in a successful period of victories for the Australian Fords between 2003 and 2010.

Formula Ford EcoBoost 

Formula Ford EcoBoost has been through a series of shapeshifting over the years from its debut in 2011 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Ford modified every nook and corner of the once offbeat, single-seater race car into an actual Formula One race car with a rear wing. It achieved the international feat of producing quite a lot of pro drivers under its belt. The Formula Ford EcoBoost proved to be a bedrock for young racecar drivers to compete in Formula One auto racing.
