Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

South Aus­tralian Rally cham­pion Guy Tyler will join Ma­jor Mo­tor­sport to com­pete in the Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship in 2016.

Tyler – who was one of the fi­nal­ists for the Vaux­hall Mo­tor­sport prize drive which is also run by Ma­jor Mo­tor­sport – will com­pete in a Ford Fi­esta R2 and joins Rhys Pin­ter and Ar­ron Win­dus as the third Aus­tralian signed up for the cham­pi­onship.

“Ever since meet­ing the team from Ma­jor Mo­tor­sport through the Vaux­hall ap­pli­ca­tion process I knew I wanted to race with them no mat­ter what,” ex­plained Tyler. “Their pro­fes­sion­al­ism, friend­li­ness, and ded­i­ca­tion to do the job prop­erly were very ev­i­dent.”

The 25-year-old will move to the UK and com­pete on five rounds of the cham­pi­onship, miss­ing only the Cir­cuit of Ire­land and Ul­ster rounds.

“At the mo­ment we are do­ing five rounds, which is to cut costs and make it pos­si­ble for us [to come to the UK], but if we find the funds we will def­i­nitely be try­ing to get over to Ire­land,” added Tyler
