M-Sport have teamed up with Scotland’s world-famous biscuit maker, Tunnock’s, for the twelfth and penultimate round of the FIA World Rally Championship – Wales Rally GB.

On the eve of what looks set to be an historic home event for the Cumbrian squad, the team’s 13 car strong service park will be furnished with two Tunnock’s branded Ford Fiesta rally cars.

Currently holding second place in the drivers’ standings, Ott Tänak’s Ford Fiesta WRC will brandish striking Caramel Wafer motifs on the bonnet, side panels, and tailgate, as well as the world-famous Tunnock’s Tea Cake on the front and rear bumpers.

Matthew Wilson and Tunnock’s very own Stuart Loudon will also wow the Welsh fans in a Ford Fiesta R5 that epitomises the Tunnock’s brand.

Highlighting the iconic packaging of both the Caramel Wafer and the renowned Tea Cake, the all-British pairing will be an eye-catching sight through the Welsh forests.

M-Sport Managing Director, Malcolm Wilson OBE, said:

“We have a long history with Tunnock’s and this is a fantastic partnership for Wales Rally GB. They are an iconic brand – not only in Scotland and the north of England, but all over the world – and it’s great to have them with us on this very special event.

“The Tunnock’s Tea Cakes and Caramel Wafers are firm favourites with everyone who visits our Service Park; and Matthew and Stuart’s car looks amazing. It’s instantly recognisable and I think it will become a fan favourite out on the stages!”

Tunnock’s Managing Director, Boyd Tunnock CBE, said:

“The cars look fantastic! I smiled as soon as I saw them and got my phone out to take some pictures to show everyone back at base. Rallying is an exciting spectator sport, and they don’t get more exciting than Wales Rally GB. I can’t wait to see these cars in action.

“Like M-Sport, Tunnock’s is a family business and I see a lot of similarities between our two companies. We might make biscuits, and they might make rally cars, but a lot of the basic principles are the same.

“Walking through the workshop at M-Sport, you can see that everyone takes real pride in what they are doing, and that is the same attitude in our factory. Both work forces are passionate about what they are doing, and this is something that yields success. We’ll be hoping to see plenty of that on the stages next week.”
