Ford is evaluating a return to the World Touring Car Championship with the new-shape Focus.

The American manufacturer is working with British Touring Car squad Arena International Motorsport, which currently fields three new Focuses in Britain, to assess a World Championship programme.

If I were the WTCC boss, I'd be bribing Ford with lots of money to come to WTCC, with how unbelievably boring it has become. Ford is a magnet for other car company's, if Ford enter than others could too.

Bloody Ford!!! But do tend to agree though SIR many others look at Ford and think bloody Ford! (might not, might be just me that thinks that) if they are going into WTCC we might give it a go too never know now Renault arn't running a full F1 programme i'm sure they'll have a few World Series Megane trophys floating about that they could enter (living in kuku land again sorry)

Chevrolet v Ford would be very significant as both are arch-rivals in especially the USA and other countries. There will be a round in the USA at Infineon Raceway next year too, where NASCAR and IndyCar races - that can only make WTCC more attractive to Ford. Ford has just launched the Focus in America, so promoting it with a race model might be beneficial for them.

Really, makers like Ford, Toyota, Renault etc are the car manufacturers that WTCC always should have had. Why WTCC was launched in 2005 and now only has one official works entry, is a mystery.
