Winner of the 2009 Rally America 2WD National Championship, Dillon Van Way, is headed overseas at the end of this month to prepare and test for Rally North Wales (formerly the Bulldog Rally) taking place on April 6th and 7th.
“Wales has some of the best stages in the world and I’m really looking forward to racing on some of the same roads I grew up watching the WRC cars use,” said Van Way. “The level of competition at Rally North Wales will provide me with a great opportunity to see how I stack up against the rest of the world.”
Van Way will be driving the same Ford Fiesta R2 that Elfyn Evans drove to victory in the 2012 WRC Academy. The car will be prepared and managed by Gwyndaf Evans Motors of Dolgellau. Andrew Edwards, of Aberystwyth, will continue to sit in with Van Way as they contest in Andrew’s home country. Edwards won the event in 2011 when it was still on the international schedule.
“The British Championship has produced some of the best rally drivers in the world such as Richard Burns, Colin McRae and Ari Vatanen,” mentions Edwards. “This level of driving requires intense focus and determination. I’m confident that Dillon can step up to the mark here in Wales.”
