The Welsh­man will drive an M-sport car orig­i­nally in­tended for lo­cal hero John Pow­ell – the Trinidad and Tobago man had to pull out of the June 3-5 event, but is keen to see his car be­ing used by the WRC2 se­ries leader.

With Evans miss­ing Rally Italy (which runs the week af­ter Bar­ba­dos, mak­ing it tricky to get back for the Sar­dinian recce), he’s keen to be back in the car for more seat time.

“I don’t know too much about Bar­ba­dos,” Evans told MN, “but I’m sure it’ll be good fun to com­pete over there. It goes with­out say­ing, it’s al­ways good to be driv­ing and stay­ing sharp.”
