M-Sport Ford World Rally Team’s Gus Greensmith and Elliott Edmondson are prepared to tackle a new challenge at next week’s Rally Chile. Taking to the wheel of their EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta R5, the British pairing will be looking to tame the unfamiliar terrain and push for victory in the FIA World Rally Championship’s premier support series – WRC 2 Pro.
Gus Greensmith said:
“I’ve heard a lot of different things about this new rally and only the Heller brothers have been able to give me a clear insight on what to expect. But it will still be a huge unknown for everyone.
“The organisers provided some onboard videos that I have spent a lot of time studying, but it’s hard to get an exact feel for how the stages will be – especially in terms of how wide or narrow they will be.
“They look quite fast and flowing which I believe will suit the Fiesta, but we won’t get a clear indication until we recce them for the very first time – and for sure it won’t be exactly how we thought.
“I just have to do my part as well as I can to try and bring home the first victory in Chile!”
