MML Sports Ltd has announced that it will be present at this year's Castle Combe Rallyday, which takes place on Saturday September 19.

Indeed not only will the company be displaying both its Group N Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X rally car and the Mitsubishi Lancer WRC05 World Rally Car, it will also have its full event support structure in place to allow rally fans a 'genuine insight into the operation'.

Mitsubishi rally cars have always been a major part of the Rallyday since the events inception back in 2000, but this will be the first time MML Sports has had an official presence, as the company was only formally created in December last year, from the core of the successful Mitsubishi works rally team.

Both the MML Sports Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X Group N rally car and the Lancer WRC05 will be at the show, demonstrating the two extremes of development of the venerable Lancer model.

The Evo X Group N car will be the latest version, incorporating the recent engine, damper and body developments and will be the same specification as the car which reigning British Rally champion Guy Wilks will have driven on the car's second competitive outing in Latvia just three weeks before.

The Lancer World Rally Car will also be the same specification as that used by reigning Hungarian Rally champion Csaba Spitzmuller as he defends his title against no less than five other, more recent, world rally cars in his home series.

"I am delighted that MML Sports is able to support this year's Rallyday by attending the event and running two of the most evocative rally cars from recent years," said MML Sports managing director, John Easton.

"Although we have seen Mitsubishi rally cars at Rallyday in recent years, this will be the first time that MML Sports has officially demonstrated its range and we are excited about having both cars at the event, as well as the full support infrastructure

"We will be confirming who will drive the cars in the near future. However, in the meantime, we have several rallies between now and Rallyday, including the next outing for the EvoX, so we hope to be at Castle Combe with a class-winning car by September."
