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 with Toyota Gazoo Racing WRT.
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.
After many successful years with the British M-Sport team, Elfyn is moving on to partner with previous team mate Sébastien Ogier at the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team.
While recognising the challenges that come with learning both a new car and a new team environment, Elfyn was optimistic about the future.
Joining TOYOTA GAZOO Racing is a great opportunity for me and I’m really excited to get going. The team has been very successful since it came into the sport three years ago and I’m looking forward to be a part of it. Tommi has been very successful as a driver himself and knows what it takes to perform at this level. It’s been great to deal with him so far, and I’m looking forward to getting to know the team better as we ramp up towards the start of next season. 2019 was a mixed season for us – missing three rallies due to injury being the low point – but there were some strong results and performances as we competed for stage wins and podiums. Now I want to take that further, to be winning rallies more often and seeing what’s possible in this new chapter. It will be nice to work with Sébastien again too: With the experience and success he’s had, he’s a great guy to have in the team.
