Rally - Evans the Driver

Elfyn Evans has got a drive with the DMACK British Rally Team for this year's MSA British Rally Championship and will team up with the son of another famous rallying father, Finland's Max Vatanen. Evans should be able to combine his Ford Fiesta R5 outings in the 2016 BRC with his WRC2 duties for M-Sport.

“It’s great to be back in the BRC during a revival year which sees the championship organisers putting so much effort into getting the series back to a high level,” said Elfyn. “It’s looking like a really exciting championship – proper rallies and proper organisation."

“To start our campaign on my home event at the Mid-Wales Stages will definitely be a special feeling, the Pirelli is back in there, which is a really fast event and the Nicky Grist I did in an R5 in 2013 and quite a few times in an R2. Whilst I will be pushing on every rally, the events will additionally provide us with valuable seat time in the Ford Fiesta R5 for our challenge in WRC2."

“At the end of the day, this is an opportunity for me to
really bring the fun back into the sport personally. Some of the most enjoyment I’ve had in my career was driving the R2 to the limit on a lot of the British rallies, so we’re definitely looking forward to enjoying ourselves more than anything this year.”
