Gus Greensmith and Elliott Edmondson got their 2019 FIA World Rally Championship campaign off to a good start – leading the WRC 2 Pro class behind the wheel of their EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta R5.
Gus Greensmith (1st WRC 2 Pro) said:
“That was a proper start to Rallye Monte-Carlo and I now understand why Malcolm [Wilson, M-Sport Managing Director] kept telling me to come and do this rally! The conditions were extremely tricky and even though we weren’t fully committed, we made it through. We’ll step it up tomorrow and aim to get back on the good pace we showed in Shakedown.”
Team Principal, Richard Millener, said:
“We saw some really challenging conditions this evening that caught out a number of drivers. But Gus delivered a clever drive and made it through unscathed. Tomorrow he can focus on building his pace and strengthening his position.”
