Alister joins British challenge in China
Mar 10, 2006
This year’s Chinese Rally Championship has attracted leading British rally drivers including David Higgins, Martin Rowe, Phil Collins and Alister McRae.
Last year’s championship was won by Martin Rowe and his enthusiasm for this series has enticed former sparring partners from British and World events to China.
Alister drove in China for Hyundai in 1999 when it was a round of the World Rally Championship, winning the Formula 2 class.
“I am looking forward to returning to China as it is always interesting going to a new country and exploring their continent. There are five events in the championship which are all based in different provinces. I will start the season driving a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 8 for the Wanyu Rally Team who are based in Zhenzhou in the Henan province. China has been featured in the Asia Pacific Rally Championship for a number of years and the events are well organised attracting thousands of spectators.”
“My regular co-driver David Senior is already committed for this season so I will be partnered by Gordon Noble from Northern Ireland. I will be starting the first round which is based in Shanghai on 24th March with a new team and a new co-driver” said Alister McRae.
