Evans to make Peugeot debut on Red Kite Rally
Meirion Evans will make his competition debut in his new Peugeot 208 R2 ahead of a campaign in the Junior British Rally Championship this year.
Evans competed in a Ford Fiesta R2T last year but myriad mechanical issues halted his progress. Now he’s targeting a JBRC campaign with one eye on competing in Europe. He will begin his British attack with the Red Kite this weekend.
“If it goes well I’d like to go on and do a few more in Europe and then try and move on next year,” he said. “The BRC finishes early so it gives us scope to do events abroad at the end of the year.”
Evans is returning with the sole aim of winning the JBRC this year. “I’d like to win this time. We said it last year but it didn’t really go to plan,” said Evans. “A few boys will make it difficult but we’ll give it a shot. We’ll relax and not put so much pressure on ourselves.”
