Elfyn Evans will debut the Ford Fiesta R5 Plus


In a year of transition in the WRC in general, and in M-Sport in particular, the role of Elfyn Evans is one both indefinite. The pilot welsh follows in the bosom of the preparer of Cumbria and although it is not ruled out that dispute any evidence to the wheel of a World Rally Car, its objectives are to others. Elfyn Evans will play the Monte carlo Rally with the Ford Fiesta R5 Plus, the developed version of the R5 M-Sport which will be released ahead of the season 2016. Definitely a ‘mural exhibitor’ of the benefits of the new car.

Approved in the same month of January, the presence of Elfyn Evans Fiesta R5 Plus in the Monte carlo Rally and an eventual good outcome are fundamental to to promote the new model to come out of the workshops of Cumbria. At least that is the interpretation that can be pulled, although in this noble mission looks a little limited by the absence of the official drivers of Skoda Motorsport with the Skoda Fabia R5, the great rival to beat in the category WRC2. Neither will be Nasser Al-Attiyah, reigning champion of the category with the vehicle in the Czech republic and that have Dakar as their closest target.

With the absence of big names, Elfyn Evans has almost the obligation to carry the victory to the Ford Fiesta R5 Plus in its first test in the World Rally. In game is one of the livelihoods principal of M-Sport and that can make the difference between taking a full programme as a factory team, or to forgo the extra tests european, the same way you can mark the border between a program more or less solid and continued to Elfyn Evans or, on the contrary the Monte carlo Rally, becoming little more than an appearance punctual.
