Elfyn Evans will have a full program in WRC2 at the controls of the evolution of the R5 M-Sport. The welsh played seven tests, but so far have not defined which tests will be selected to try the assault to the title. Of time, the welsh is confirmed for Rally Monte carlo and Rally Sweden, the first two tests of the calendar of the World Rally in 2016.

According to the data provided by the preparer british, the new R5 has 35 HP more power , and has an increased torque to 56 Nm. An evolution that represents the biggest step forward since in any engine that has gone through the garages of M-Sport.

The presence of Evans in WRC2 is not the only open front, as the team of Malcolm Wilson still you are unsure about your condition of ‘builder’ and hence their presence in all the tests of the championship. An M-Sport occupying the role of equipment manufacturer will not only allow us to see the official drivers in all the tests of the championship, but that opens a range of possibilities for the own Elfyn Evans to compete with the Ford Fiesta R5 Plus in the tests most favourable to their interests.
