David Wright will kick off his 2009 rally season this weekend on the Chepstow-based Wyedean Forest Rally.
Wright, who will be co-driven by Rob Fagg, is hoping to be out on the stages more frequently this year after limited appearances in recent years.
"I'm aiming to contest a few of the BTRDA championship rounds this year, it's going to be good to get a few more events in," said Wright, who is backed by Kumho Tyres and Grove Hill Garage.
"I've had some decent results in the last couple of years including finishing fifth overall on last year's Cambrian rally and second overall on the Grizedale Stages. I'm aiming to get a good finish on the Wyedean too although it's going to be pretty tough with the standard of the opposition."
Wright and Fagg will be using a GPM prepared Mitsubishi Evo 9 on the event, the same car that was used on the Cambrian and Grizedale events. It is hoped they will have a new Evo ready for the Malcolm Wilson rally in March.
