Elfyn Evans Breaks R2 Record

The Ford Fiesta R2 smashed it’s finest ever finish in the FIA World Rally Championship at last weekend’s Rallye de France, piloted by the ever impressive Elfyn Evans.

The  former Kick Energy Fiesta SportTrophy UK and Ireland champion, pushed his Pirelli-supported Gwyndaf Evans Motorsport Fiesta R2 into an impressive 16th place overall to be top 2WD car and took the victory in Class 6.

Elfyn told us; “France was my first experience competing on asphalt outside the UK and I’m delighted to have finished 16th overall.  I was happy with my pace against the FIA WRC Academy drivers and we set some fastest stage times whilst competing with those guys which felt really good.

He added; “The car was going really well too and we had no problems. I’m just delighted to have left my third WRC event and first rally on asphalt outside the UK with such a good result.”

Out of the 64 cars that entered the 11th round of the WRC, 36 were Ford cars.  Ford won the R2 class, the Super 2000 World Rally Championship (S-WRC) with the Fiesta S2000 and the Ford Fiesta RS WRC claimed seven fastest stage times including five out of six stage wins on the event’s final day.
