Following their success in the Ulster round of the Pirelli British Rally Championship, Gwyndaf Evans, Chris Patterson and the MG ZR head for the penultimate round of the Junior World Rally Championship in San Remo.

The MG ZR, entered by Gwyndaf Evans Motorsport, will compete in the Super1600 Class on the tarmac stages of northwest Italy. Encouraged by his recent Class win Gwyndaf said: "We're very excited about having done so well at Ulster but we know we have to step up another gear for San Remo where we'll be competing at World Championship level. Ulster has left us with a good feeling and I'm really looking forward to the next event. The MG ZR is getting better by the day."

His regular co-driver Chris Patterson will accompany Gwyndaf. He added: "After such a great result at Ulster were really glad to be back on tarmac in Italy. It's a brilliant rally and the atmosphere really makes it. I can't wait to get there and hopefully come away with a good result."

The rally activities (excluding JWRC) of MG Rover Group are now run from its Longbridge headquarters under the supervision of the MG Sport & Racing managing director, Rob Oldaker. Commenting on the San Remo Rally he said:

"Naturally Im delighted for MG, Gwyndaf and Chris on their success on the Ulster Rally. San Remo will provide some stiff competition for the car in what is essentially its development year. I wish the team every success."

The San Remo Rally commences on Friday September 20. It will cover 1407km over 18 stages and finishes on Sunday September 22.
