British driver Gus Greensmith who made his World Rally Championship debut with the M Sport Ford WRC team in 2019 will once again compete for the Cumbria based outfit in 2020.
The 23 year old Manchester native will compete in the season opening Rally Monte Carlo and will follow that up with outings in Mecico, Argentina, Portugal, Italy, Finland, Turkey, Germany and his home event in Great Britain.
Speaking after making the announcement which sees the youngest driver line up at his outfit, M Sport Ford WRC Managing Director Malcolm Wilson OBE said:
We’re going back to our roots in more ways than one this year – fielding a young team and welcoming two sets of Finns back to the family. We enjoyed some fantastic results with Marcus, Mikko and Jari-Matti, and now I’m looking forward to seeing how the next generation of Flying Finns develop.
“But our core philosophy has always been the promotion and progression of young talent, and in Esapekka, Teemu and Gus we have three talented youngsters who are all capable of delivering some strong results.
“The team may be a young one, but they have the experience and ambition to go far – and I’m keen to see what they can achieve in 2020.”
