Morrow set to use own car on Ulster.

Phillip Morrow looks set to revert back to his own Mitsubishi Evo 9 on his home event, the Todds Leap Ulster Rally, later this month, the fourth round in the 2008 Tesco 99 Octane MSA British Rally Championship.

Morrow, who was axed by the 'works' Mitsubishi UK Rally Team at the end of last month, following poor results on the Jim Clark and Isle of Man, told the Belfast Telegraph that although he still has to put the funds together to take in the event he is hopeful he will be at the start.

Indeed the 2007 Evo Challenge champion noted that he will be keen to make a point to show Mitsubishi was wrong to drop him.

"We are still working on a budget for the rally but I'm determined to be there," he told the 'paper.

"I want to show Mitsubishi what I am capable of. I'm not a crasher by reputation, as my six wins in the Evo Challenge last season prove, but these things happen in rallying. It is the nature of the sport.

"It was devastating to be dropped by the team after working so hard over the past four years to earn the works drive.

"I don't know what the future holds for me but for the moment I'm just focusing on putting the pieces together to allow me to do the Ulster Rally."

Morrow meanwhile will be co-driven on the event by Gordon Noble, Rally Ireland clerk of the course, as his regular partner, Daniel Barritt will be in New Zealand, gearing up for the eleventh round in the WRC with P-WRC runner Fumio Nutahara.

Philip Morrow is a class driver and what mitsubishi did to him makes me sick as a parrot , if i were Mr Gyndaf Evans i would keep a low profile on the Ulster rally . Nothing personel but he should have told them to shove their Evo 9 where the sun dont shine ! Keep the revs up Philip and keep her flat in Ulster !
