For example, the mid-range Fiat Doblo van racking options will be based on the amount of storage space available and the kind of purpose it is serving.

System Edström Race van adds motorsport sparkle

We like to set ourselves a challenge at System Edström. And that’s what we’ve done with our Ford Transit Courier race van.

The idea came from a conversation with Ford about future power trains. UK Managing Director Peter Corderey explained: “We were discussing how, in the future, many people will be looking at buying vans with the Ford EcoBoost engines, which can then have the power curve adjusted to suit their needs.

“That got us to thinking about what we could do. So, we purchased a Ford Transit Courier with a 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine and re-engineered it to take up from 100bhp to around 150bhp. We then added a coilover suspension, fitted a roll cage, racing seats and harnesses.”

We think the finished article looks absolutely fantastic. And it’s practical, too. We fitted the back of the van with a full set of System Edström racking to make it its own pit crew vehicle as well as a race van.

David Sawford of System Edström’s communications team said: “Throughout 2019, we’ll be taking our iconic Ford Transit Courier race van to leading motorsport events across the UK. It’s also available to any Ford Transit Centres who’d like to borrow it to display in their showrooms. We think it will add a bit of racing glamour to showrooms and be a real talking point for customers.”

If you’d like to play host to our Ford Transit Courier race van at your showroom during the year, contact the communications team at System Edström on 01536 203040.
