DMACK reshuffles WRC2 drivers while Tanak will head to Ypres
DMACK has made significant changes to its driver line-up in the World Rally Championship programme for the remainder of 2016.
Sander Parn has been dropped from the DMACK WRC2 squad for the next three rallies. Karl Kruuda will replace him in the team’s Ford Fiesta R5 in Sardinia, Poland and Finland. Parn will return for two rallies at the end of the season.
With Max Vatanen’s Fiesta free following his decision to focus on the Drive DMACK Fiesta Trophy (see page 21), Ott Tanak will pilot the car on the Ypres Rally in the European championship after a key test in Sanremo.
DMACK managing director Dick Cormack said he wanted to strengthen DMACK’S WRC2 challenge in the middle of the year: “We’re very pleased with what Marius [Aasen] is doing in WRC2, but Sander’s performance hasn’t been where we hoped it might be. He’s got two prize drives remaining with us and we’ll do those at the end of the year. For the next three rallies, Karl will be in the team.”
