One team that pulled out all the stops to make the start line of this weekend’s Rally Finland is Josh McErlean and James Fulton.
The Motorsport Ireland Rally Academy members owe a lot to PRCR and its team of mechanics.
They rolled their Hyundai i20 in brutally wet conditions i on the final day on the final day in Estonia last month.
The penultimate stage roll could have derailed McErlean’s third place in the Junior WRC2 category, but the young ace battled on to finish the final test without a windscreen, securing the all-important finish.
McErlean currently sits eighth in the WRC2 Junior standings with Fulton leading the charge. However, with 24 entries in Rally2 machinery, it will be a tough prospect to repeat his Estonia podium.
“PCRS has done an incredible job of getting the car re-prepared in time” explains McErlean.
“Every one of them has worked in an overdrive mode and I`d like to say a huge thank you to all of them for their efforts. Behind the scenes, we have all been working hard to be as prepared as possible for Finland as we know that we cannot afford to be complacent,”
“Support from the Motorsport Ireland Rally Academy as always has been second to none and James [Fulton] has been putting in many hours too. The whole team have put serious effort in for this coming week and we are all eager to reap the rewards of our energy”.
