Gus Greensmith says he “can’t wait to get back to Mexico” as he prepares for his second appearance on the event.
Greensmith last contested the rally back in 2018 while in WRC2 where he finished second in class and the young Brit can’t wait to contest the rally again this time in a top-level M-Sport Ford Fiesta WRC next weekend.
He said ahead of the third round of the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship: “I’m a huge fan of Rally Mexico and it’s probably my favourite place to visit on the FIA World Rally Championship calendar. The scenery and colours of Guanajuato and the enthusiasm of the fans provide a truly special experience for everyone and I can’t wait to get back there.”
“I really enjoyed my time there in 2018, but it will be a completely different challenge this year. I’ve been preparing in the heat and altitude chambers so my body is definitely feeling efficient and I’m sure that will help my performance next week, so let’s see what we can do.”
23-year-old Greensmith is in 2020 competing in a part-season campaign for the Cumbrian team, with his last appearance on the opening round of the season in Monte Carlo being cut short after he went off the road on an icy corner.
Round three of the 2020 WRC takes place next weekend between March 12-15.
