LAFFEY CONFIRMS BRC SEASON WITH M-SPORT’S FORD FIESTA R5

Alex Laffey and Patrick Walsh will join Matt Edwards and Darren Garrod to contest this year’s Prestone MSA British Rally Championship with M-Sport’s Ecoboost-powered Ford Fiesta R5. Contesting all six events, the Scotsman will be keen to continue the progress he started in 2017.

Having secured a number top-ten finishes throughout last year’s championship, Laffey will be hoping for more of the same this year – with good performances on both gravel and asphalt. Continuing to enjoy support from U-Student – providers of high-quality student accommodation – the 28-year-old will get his season underway at next month’s Border Counties Rally.

Alex Laffey said:

“I am really excited to be working with M-Sport again this season. I learnt a lot being in the factory team last year, and we saw our pace improve on gravel and asphalt at every event. Taking my first BRC stage win was great, but now the target is to push – to fight at the front more regularly and hopefully challenge for a podium on some of our faster events.”
