Insurance for all your rallying needs
Henning Solberg is aiming to be back in the World Rally Championship in time for Rally Argentina – but he wants a current specification Ford Fiesta RS WRC.
The Norwegian returned to the WRC on last week’s Rally Sweden for the first time since the first two rounds of last year’s championship. He is, however, determined to stay for 2016.
“It’s fantastic to be back,” he said after finishing seventh on the Karlstad event. “I am talking with sponsors now, but for sure I want to be back – not for Mexico but for Argentina and then after as well. But it has to be the ’15 car for me. It’s really important I’m in the same car as the other guys.”
M-sport’s Malcolm Wilson said: “It’s always good to have Henning around, he’s a real character and he’s certainly shown that he’s still well capable of driving for a result here. Because of car availability, it might be tricky to get him in a 2016 car for Argentina, but we’ll see what we can do.”
