Wilks in fresh appeal for support.

2007 Tesco 99 Octane MSA British Rally champion Guy Wilks has launched a fresh appeal for support as he looks to secure himself a drive with the works Subaru World Rally Team next year.

Wilks is hoping to raise the funds necessary to get a seat with the Banbury-based outfit through the 'Wilks 500 Club' investment/sponsorship scheme, which initiated back in July.

A statement to the media read:

"Guy Wilks is in a race against time to land a seat with the Subaru World Rally Team for 2009 - and he needs Britain to back him.

"Guy is appealing for all British rally fans, motor clubs, businesses - everyone who shares our passion for the sport - to get involved in the Wilks 500 Club investment/sponsorship scheme."

Speaking back in July, the Englishman noted: "Driving for Subaru would be the realisation of a dream for me and I think it would really give British rally fans something to cheer. It would be fantastic.

"We have spent a long time working on the Wilks 500 Club, making sure there is something for everyone and it offers real value for money. And I would like to think British rallying, at every level, would get a lift from having a Brit back in a Subaru.

"Whether it's five pals clubbing together or a business who sees this as a big marketing opportunity, I would be very grateful for your support.

"David Richards [Subaru WRT team boss] has talked about wanting a Brit back in his team in the near future - and I want to be that Brit. He has achieved amazing things with Prodrive. He has made Subaru synonymous with rallying and he helped mould Colin McRae and Richard Burns into world champions. I know, given time, he could do the same with me.

"It's so frustrating to sit on the sidelines and watch my old JWRC rivals Dani Sordo, P-G [Andersson], Urmo Aava, Jari-Matti Latvala - all guys I could beat - setting fastest times and taking podiums in the WRC."

"Please back me by joining the Wilks 500 Club."
