BTRDA champ Adams to co-drive in Canada

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Welsh co-driver Dom Adams will com­pete on his first event out­side of Europe this week­end, as he heads to com­pete in the Cana­dian Rally Cham­pi­onship.

The Rhondda nav­i­ga­tor com­peted on the con­ti­nent for the first time in June, and will now head to Canada to sit with Subaru Im­preza driver Agostino For­tu­nato on the Rally of the Tall Pines.

“The re­ac­tion has been re­ally good,” said Adams, who has co-driven in the BTRDA this year. “Back in June I did Ypres with a Bel­gian driver and to do that I had to get an in­ter­na­tional li­cence. That was my first in­ter­na­tional event. I re­ally en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence and it was quite chal­leng­ing. Com­ing away from that I wanted to do more.”

The 21-year-old will take part af­ter For­tu­nato’s usual co-driver couldn’t make the Novem­ber 25/26 event.

“I was in con­ver­sa­tion with a few Amer­i­can and Cana­dian driv­ers, but then I got in touch with Agostino and his co-driver was un­able to do the next event,” said Adams. “I sent him my in-car and some of my re­sults and he seemed happy to take me on. That was only a few days ago, it’s been mad since then.”

Adams won the 2016 1400C cham­pi­onship in BTRDA
