Mitsubishi Motors UK has confirmed that it will again support the Rallyday event at Castle Combe on September 20.

The Cirencester-based squad has had a presence at the Rallyday every year since its inception in 2001 and this year is no exception.

Indeed Mitsubishi will again return with the Lancer WRC05 and this time it will be demonstrated by 2007 Tesco 99 Octane MSA British Rally champion and Mitsubishi UK 'works' driver Guy Wilks.

"I've been to Rallyday before and it really is a great day out - even more so for me this year as it will be the first time I have driven at the event," said Wilks. "I've only tried the Lancer WRC05 once before and it's a fantastic car, so I'm looking forward to 'performing' in front of the crowds."

Wilks will be joined on the event by former British Champion Gwyndaf Evans, who has also confirmed he will attend.

Also on display meanwhile will be one of the two UK works Group N Lancer Evolution IXs as driven by Wilks in this year's BRC.

In addition the Mitsubishi stand will feature the latest version of the Japanese firm's iconic rally-bred saloon, the new Lancer Evolution X, plus other models from its range alongside cars from Mitsubishi's one-make rally series, the popular and highly-competitive Evolution Challenge.

Adding to its support, Mitsubishi will also be providing official event support vehicles for the Rallyday organisers.

"We are delighted to continue our association with Rallyday," added Paul Brigden, General Manager of Ralliart. "It is a great opportunity for us and other manufacturers and teams to display our cars to the public, many of whom are rally fans of course."

As well as driving the Mitsubishi WRC car, Wilks is destined to have a busy day promoting his 'Back the Brit' campaign, a national project to raise awareness and funds for a season in the World Rally Championship in 2009.

Wilks will also be trying to smash the lens on PIAA's brand new 'shock-proof' rally lamp, which is being launched at the Rallyday. PIAA claims it is indestructible - and Guy is going to prove that there is only one-way to find out.
