Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

The Mof­fett brothers Sam and Josh will con­cen­trate their ef­forts on the Ir­ish Tar­mac Cham­pi­onship and heav­ily re­vamped Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship this year.

The pair­ing plans to com­pete in all the Ir­ish Tar­mac rounds this sea­son, as well as the BRC. They will com­pete in a pair of the lat­est-spec Ford Fi­esta R5 Evos.

For 2016, it will boast a se­ries of im­prove­ments, the big­gest re­sult­ing in a more pow­er­ful 1.6-litre en­gine.

“We hope to have the cars be­fore Gal­way and get some test­ing done,” Josh ex­plained. “We got the chance to drive the newly up­graded car dur­ing a visit to M-sport and both my­self and Sam were hugely im­pressed with it. We looked at other op­tions – but de­cided the Fi­esta was the best.”

He added that he was de­lighted to be driv­ing a car cre­ated by M-sport.

“It of­fers the com­plete pack­age,” said Josh. “As well as the car, their ser­vice for parts and their tech­ni­cal sup­port is se­cond to none.”

Sam and Josh used Ford Fi­esta RS WRCS on Wales Rally GB in ’15
