Elfyn Evans and his co-driver Daniel Barritt will partner Finland's Mikko Hirvonen and Jarmo Lehtinen in the 2014 M-Sport World Rally Team. The announcement completes an amazing year for Elfyn, who finished sixth overall on his debut in Sardinia before winning the WRC2 category on his home event, the Wales Rally of Great Britain. This is the M-Sport press release:
Winning the WRC2 category on Wales Rally GB was the perfect way for Elfyn Evans to end the 2013 WRC season, after the young Welshman finished as runner-up in the category twice during the year and played a significant part in developing the R5 version of the M-Sport Ford Fiesta.
In the run-up to the 2013 Wales Rally GB, fans of Elfyn Evans can now show their support for the young Welshman by proudly wearing an item of Elfyn branded clothing. The clothing range, that includes a hoodie, t-shirt, beanie and umbrella, has been designed and produced by Performance Clothing at their base in Llandrindod Wells in Mid Wales and is now on sale.
For only the second time during the 2013 season, Elfyn Evans and his co-driver Dan Barritt failed to finish a round of the FIA World Rally Championship when clutch problems forced them to retire from the Rally de Espana. It was a disappointing end to the rally for the pair, who had been in second place in the WRC2 category for much of the three-day event.
Elfyn Evans, driving a Qatar M-Sport Ford Fiesta R5 for only the second time on a round of the FIA World Rally Championship, equalled his best-ever result by finishing in sixth place overall and second in WRC2 on the ADAC Rallye Deutschland.
