2016 Drive DMACK Fiesta Trophy-winner Osian Pryce will be returning back home at the 2016 Dayinsure Wales Rally GB.

Machynlleth-based Pryce will be competing in the WRC2 class in a Ford Fiesta R5 in Flintshire after winning the Drive DMACK Fiesta Trophy last time out in Spain.

The Welshman, who made his first WRC start two years ago at this rally and set times which placed him second in the WRC2 class.

Pryce said “There’s no place like home. When I was going off to work this morning, the sun was just coming up on a crisp autumn day and I thought “This is it, this is the time for Rally GB.”

“I can’t wait to get in the car and get on with it. It’s such a special feeling to be competing at home, surrounded by so many family and friends. It’s fantastic. And to be doing it with the championship won and the pressure gone is just such a bonus.”

Pryce added about the fact that he has not celebrated winning the Drive DMACK Fiesta Trophy in Spain.

“It was literally straight back into work as soon as we landed and then we had a few hassles getting the money sorted for Rally GB, so I was on the phone trying to get all of those problems solved.

“We’re there now though. Like all of our rallying, it’s been very much a hand-to-mouth kind of deal, but that’s the way it has to be for us. Getting on the phone chasing sponsorship is what keeps us on the road, so I’m only too happy to do that. I can’t thank everybody enough for the help this season in achieving our dream.”
