Two-time World Rally Champion Marcus Gronholm (left) will be a nominated points-scorer for the Stobart Ford team when he makes his latest WRC return on next month's Rally Sweden.
Gronholm announced last month that he would drive a Ford Focus WRC entered by Finnish privateer Mattias Therman's Team Therminator operation on the event. But his entry has now been brought under the Stobart banner, with Ford's second-string team selecting Gronholm and Henning Solberg as its contenders for manufacturers' points in Sweden. Stobart Ford will also run team regular Matthew Wilson on the rally.
There will also be three factory Fords in Sweden for Mikko Hirvonen, Jari-Matti Latvala and Khalid Al-Qassimi, while Citroen fields Sebastien Loeb and Dani Sordo as usual plus Sebastien Ogier and Kimi Raikkonen in its Junior team. Other leading WRC entries include Petter Solberg in his new self-run Citroen C4 and Adapta Subaru's Mads Ostberg.
