Welcome to the first ever Tom Cave blog!
So we started off the year not knowing whether I would be competing at all this year. There simply weren’t any real offers on the table. Of course, I had the option of the Drive DMACK Fiesta Trophy but I really didn’t see the benefit for me of staying in that series for another year.
I wanted to be in a R5 car for 2016 but things were looking bleak.
However, low and behold an opportunity raised its head during the week leading up the Autosport Show.
Spencer Sport, who is a family concern based in Llandysul West Wales wanted me in a R5 Fiesta EVO in the new-look BRC which was now attracting attention from around the world.
They were fortunate enough to have a excellent tyre deal on the table with Michelin all we needed was a car…
A deal was struck with M-Sport World Rally Team and we got our hands on Elfyn Evans’ Sweden winning WRC2 Fiesta R5 EVO. It was game on.
