Elfyn Evans and Scott Martin from M-Sport are the next WRC Manufacturer Team starting at Rally Estonia which is the first official WRC Promotional event. Evans and Martin, currently fourth in WRC overall classification, are ready to tackle the stages with their EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta WRC.
Elfyn Evans said:
“I’m pretty excited to be driving at this year’s Rally Estonia. I’ve never competed here before, but I’ve heard so many good things about the rally and I can’t wait to experience it for myself.
“The Estonian stages won’t be completely new to me though. We tested in Estonia back in 2017 and I can confirm that the roads there are fairly impressive! They’re so fast, and this will be the perfect way for us to get up to speed before heading to our pre-event test in Finland.”
Team Principal, Richard Millener, said:
“Rally Estonia has become one of those events that everyone wants to do. We’ve had a number of customers compete there, and we’re really exciting to be bringing Elfyn and the EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta WRC this year.
"We know how passionate the Estonian fans are and with WRC manufacturers sending a top-level car and crew, the atmosphere is going to be incredible – I can’t wait to experience it for myself!
"It’s going to be pretty special, and it’s also the perfect way to get Elfyn and Scott up to speed ahead of their Finland preparations.”
Adding M-Sport with Ford Fiesta WRC to the entry list is a big thing or the rally organisers.
Director of Rally Estonia, Urmo Aava, said:
“The fact that we have created an event which is well known in WRC is a compliment to us. M-Sport team starting with Ford Fiesta WRC driven by Elfyn Evans and Scott Martin is important for us as it is their first time here. On behalf of the organisation I would like to offer them great conditions and strong competition. M-Sport has done fantastic work with Ford Fiesta WRC and I’m sure our stages suit both to the car and Elfyn and Scott. I am looking forward to see their pace at Rally Estonia.”
