MotoGP's Eugene Laverty taken for a WRC ride in Monaco

MotoGP's Eugene Laverty gets a taste of WRC skills and thrills.
MotoGP rookie Eugene Laverty got a taste of World Rally Championship skills and thrills with a ride through the streets of Monaco ahead of this year's WRC season-opener.

Aspar Honda rider Laverty stepped into the co-driver's seat of a Ford Fiesta RS WRC alongside M-Sport star Elfyn Evans.

“That was even better than I expected,” Laverty said afterwards. “To watch Elfyn [Evans] driving - his finger tips and the tips of his toes - was incredible. I was looking at him as much as I was looking out of the window and I definitely enjoyed it!”

Ex-Formula One racer David Coulthard and Welsh songstress Elin Fflur also got to sample what Evans and his WRC car could do.

Laverty will be back in the 'driving seat' of his RC213V-RS during the opening 2015 pre-season test at Sepang from February 4-7.
