Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

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.”
