Welcome to my new website, where you’ll find exclusive content, photos and all the very latest news and views as I contest the FIA World Rally Championship in an M-Sport Ford Fiesta WRC.
It will also be home to some great competitions, news on the events I’ll be attending around and outside the WRC and lots of fun stuff too. It will be the most up-to-date place on the Internet to find out what I’m up to – so feel free to pop back as often as you can.
When Elfyn Evans scored his maiden WRC victory on the 2017 Wales Rally GB in a state-of-the-art M-Sport Ford Fiesta WRC, it was just 11 years after he’d made his rally debut in a little Nissan Micra!
His rise from service manager in the family garage business to one of the world’s top professional rally drivers has been rapid – and it’s been achieved through hard work and determination.
Inspired by his father, former British rally champion Gwyndaf Evans, Elfyn does everything to a very high professional level, but doesn’t live the superstar lifestyle in Monaco – preferring his natural surroundings of beautiful mid-Wales on his days off. But don’t let his modesty fool you – he’s as competitive as any driver in the WRC and he has one aim; to be World Champion.
Dan Barritt is one of the UK’s most experienced and top professional rally co-drivers. Born in Burnley in 1980, Dan started co-driving in 1999 – following in the wheel tracks of both his grandfather and father who were also keen rally competitors.
He made his rally debut aged 16, co-driving for his father on the Tour of Mull Rally, and his career took off when he won the SCCA Pro Rally title in the USA in 2002. Dan has been a regular co-driver in the WRC since 2006 and has gained a vast amount of experience with over 100 WRC starts to his name.
