Ford wants the best and to achieve that the carmaker clearly isn’t sitting on its laurels. A new engine has been designed. The 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost racing engine will be released at the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship. The company stated the people who made it all possible are very happy with the unveiling of the direct-injected twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine. There is a word which says it’s not the winning which matters but the race. And the Ecoboost will be to the United SportsCar Championship to compete with the other V8 engines. The engine is fitted on the 2014 Riley Technologies Daytona Prototype car. Ford wants the world to know about EcoBoost’s performance and fuel economy, on and off the track.
The Ford Racing director, Jamie Allison revealed all this information to the press but he didn’t say anything about power and torque outputs for the new engine. It has a new look with Ford styling cues and aerodynamic support. Garen Nicoghosian took care of the design cues and the Ford Racing chief aerodynamicist Bernie Marcus took care of the aerodynamic support. The high performance engine is expected to help Ford to beat the 210.364 mph (338.548 km/h) lap set in 1987 by NASCAR champion Bill Elliott with a Ford Thunderbird. The man who is hoped to achieve this record is Colin Braun.
Michael Shank Racing, Ford Racing and Continental Tire offered their support for the big event to happen. The first team to use the engine is Michael Shank Racing with a new-look Daytona Prototype car. The engine’s racing debut is set to take place next year at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. October 9 is the date when Colin Braun will be in the car trying to achieve the new record we were talking earlier. The first month of the next year will be a lucky one for the company because this is the time when at the 24 Hours of Daytona the new EcoBoost will be launched.
