• WRC star looking forward to ‘really exciting’ BRC return
• Young Welshman to drive DMACK Ford Fiesta R5
• 27-year-old tipped to be ‘benchmark’ for other competitors

FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) star Elfyn Evans is looking forward to competing on home turf this year after confirming that he will enter the revitalised MSA British Rally Championship (BRC) with the DMACK British Rally Team.

Evans will join forces with another son of a famous rallying father – Finnish sensation Max Vatanen – in DMACK’s two-pronged assault, and will pilot a latest-specification Ford Fiesta R5 in the 2016 BRC, dovetailing his title challenge with his WRC2 duties for M-Sport.

Current DMACK brand ambassador Ari Vatanen and Gwyndaf Evans are both former British Rally Champions – 20 years apart in 1976 and 1996 respectively – and their sons are palpably fired-up as they endeavour to follow in their wheeltracks.
