    I must have missed that. Weird, Ford Europe has always been very independent, any link/source?

    Yes, Ford Europe was pretty much a different company to Ford US in the past. Different vehicles, different engines, non existent part sharing etc. But now, they are operating under the "One Ford" strategy, where everything is streamlined for global use under the parent company. And thats why the various performance brands (SVT in the US, Team RS in Europe, FPV in Australia) are now under the Ford Performance moniker, based in the US.

    Thats a Baja 1000 F150 Raptor, so we can rest assured that it would handle rough stages just fine...

    Yeah, I read that too. Actually in one outlet I read he was negotiating with both the Ford HQ in America and Ford Europe and in another one they were talking about him being in contact with Ford Europe. Now I'm confused.

    Thats the guy you re (mainly) looking for if you want Ford Performance backing.Dave Pericak.Gerard Quinn(the former Team RS head, who were previously backing Wilson) is now a subordinate of him.

    Ford Australia - (FPV closed in 2014?) in 2017 from what I understand is built up car importer (with vehicle storage and spare parts warehouses), there is also the Product development centre (around 2000 staff) https://www.ford.com.au/about-ford/n...novation--exp/ (The engine and vehicle manufacturing plants have been closed - Ford Falcon car and ute and Ford Territory -suv).
