Devine to make abroad de­but

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Ir­ish Tar­mac Cham­pi­onship reg­u­lar Cal­lum Devine is also plan­ning an out­ing in Ypres.

The Opel Adam R2 driver will be joined by in­ter­na­tional co-driver Alex Ki­hu­rani, who is ex­pe­ri­enced on the event where notes are im­por­tant. Some driv­ers have as many as five lev­els of ‘cuts’ in the notes to take ad­van­tage of the Bel­gian roads.

Af­ter com­pet­ing on the Cir­cuit of Ire­land, where he fin­ished 40th over­all, Devine has wanted to get back into Euro­pean cham­pi­onship com­pe­ti­tion ever since.

“It’s pretty much done, we had many dif­fer­ent plans for how to get there, but we should be go­ing any­way,” said Devine.

“It’s my first time ral­ly­ing out of the coun­try, I can’t wait now. When the cir­cuit came over here we re­ally got a taste for it [the ERC].”

Devine is also look­ing at more Bri­tish cham­pi­onship rounds, with his next en­try likely his home event, the Ul­ster Rally.
