Andrew Hockridge is set to contest the 2010 Irish Tarmac Championship season opener, the Galway International Rally, this coming weekend in his Signature Cheese-backed Citroen C2R2 Max.
The Welshman has not contested a rally since the Fastnet Rally in October and is looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of his distinctive pocket rocket.
Hockridge has a strong record on the Irish lanes, having stood on the podium on four out of his last five visits and will be aiming to add to his trophy collection this weekend.
“It's been quiet a long break for me recently and so I am really looking forward to getting back in the car this weekend. I love rallying in Ireland, everyone is so friendly and the events are good fun!” said Hockridge.
“My work commitments this year mean I probably won't be able to commit to any championship campaign but I still hope to pick and mix events throughout the season,” he added.
