BTRDA champ Adams to co-drive in Canada
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.”
