Upcoming WRC star, Gigi Galli will definitely take part in first two events in the FIA World Rally Championship this year.

Galli has been entered for the Monte Carlo Rally and the Swedish Rally by the RalliArt Italy team.

Furthermore although Mitsubishi will not have an official presence in the sport in 2006 - after axing their WRC programme, Galli will again use a Lancer WRC, this time privately run by RalliArt.

Galli was left high and dry following Mitsubishi's decision to quit, an announcement that came late in the day and which was only made public on December 14.

Although the RalliArt deal is a boost and puts him back in the mix, it is currently uncertain how many events he will contest - and according to rallye-magazin.de the outfit needs more backing if they are to put together a comprehensive package.

Harri Rovanpera meanwhile is expected to drive the second RalliArt entry, should they run two cars.
