Elfyn Evans to Sol Rally Barbados in R5 car
Elfyn Evans will take tackle this year’s Rally Barbados, driving a Ford Fiesta R5 on his Caribbean competition debut.
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.”
