Water­man signs up for new BRC Cadet class

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Alex Water­man has been con­firmed as the first en­trant into the Bri­tish Rally Championship’s new Cadet class.

The 21-year-old made his ral­ly­ing de­but in Septem­ber last year, com­pet­ing in a num­ber of sin­gle-venue ral­lies.

Now he’ll take his Ford Fi­esta R2 to the Bor­der Coun­ties – the BRC’S open­ing round – to com­pete for the championship’s prize of free en­tries to events in 2018.

“I’ve just done three weeks out in Nor­way with John Haug­land,” said Water­man, who has been train­ing to get up to speed for the se­ries. “I felt good on Tar­mac, it was the loose I was less skilled in. I feel like a dif­fer­ent driver hav­ing been taught by John.

“The Cadet class is ideal, we were go­ing to do the Ju­niors know­ing we weren’t go­ing to be com­pet­i­tive. But when this came along, it was a done deal for us.”

Water­man’s R2 will be run by Mick Harris’ prepa­ra­tion out­fit MH Mo­tor­sport.
