Matt Cotton (Left) In Action During On The 2008 Wales Rally GB


Cornish rally driver Matt Cotton will return to the British Rally Championship in 2012, entering both the BRC and the Fiesta Sporting Trophy after a three year break from the sport.

Cotton last competed in an international event in 2008, taking on the Wales Rally GB at the wheel of a Citroen C2R2, but has since been unable to find the budget required to complete an entire BRC season. He returns this year in an ex-Elfyn Evans Ford Fiesta, which will be prepared and run by AVS Motorsport and Colin Ridgeway Motorsport, while he will be co-driven by long-time friend and BRC regular Glyn Thomas.

Matt said: “There'll be some fierce competition in the BRC and Fiesta Trophy this year, but I think my past experience will enable me to set some consistent times. It's a massive challenge, but I really can't wait to get back behind the wheel.

It's always been tough to find a budget to compete, let alone in the British Rally Championship, but it's what I love so it's just a case of working hard with our sponsors and making sacrifices in other areas of my life.”
