2023 Ford Ranger Rally Race – The Ford Ranger isn’t your average pickup. Neil Woolridge Motorsport (NWM) designed and built this truck for the NWM Ford Castrol Team. This truck is very similar to the current-generation Ranger but has been modified to meet the requirements of the SARRC.
2023 Ford Ranger Rally Race Review
Ranger NWM Ford will send the Ranger NWM Ford along to the first race. It takes place later in March, on March 25. Last year, the team placed second in the overall race and won both races. The team’s chances of winning this year should be improved by the improvements made to the truck. To make the cabin and body of the pickup, carbon fiber is used along with an aramid weave. The pickup retains the trademarked NMW butterfly doors from the older truck.
The truck is 11.8 inches wide (300 mm wider than the 17-inch wheels). The truck has 17-inch wheels wrapped around 37-inch tires. They are concealed under flared wheel arches. Bigger brakes can be achieved with larger wheels. The discs are now 12.9 inches wide and 13.9 inches long. (325 mm to 13.9 inches). (355 mm). Both the front and rear brakes are air-cooled. To reduce fade, NWM water cools the rear brakes even further.
The truck also has a reworked suspension, which replaces the dual-motor system with one. The pickup has new lower and upper control arms, as well as a longer driveshaft. These improvements improve wheel travel. It now measures 11.0 inches. (13.7 in. 280 mm). (350 mm). The team needed to be ready for changes in regulations such as changing from three to two spare tires in order to race this year. Neil Woolridge, the principal of the team, said that the team started redesigning the Ranger, and other components in the middle of last year after the final T1+ rules had been published.
