IRC: Wilks tests his Skoda

Guy Wilks completes test for the Rally of Scotland, the final round in the 2009 Intercontinental Rally Challenge.

Guy Wilks and co-driver Phil Pugh started preparations for the Rally of Scotland earlier this week, successfully completing a full day testing session in their Skoda Fabia S2000.

In often difficult and very wet conditions, Wilks put the Skoda Fabia through its paces in what was his first time in the car and he is now looking forward to the final round in the 2009 Intercontinental Rally Challenge.

"Despite some pretty treacherous weather, we were pleased with how the testing has gone," said the two-time British Rally champion.

"It was great to finally get behind the wheel, spend time in the car and put some mileage under our belt. The car handled well in the slippery conditions and feels very good. I can't wait to line up on the start line on Thursday now."

Wilks was due to complete his recce for the Rally of Scotland today [Wednesday] before starting the event on Thursday afternoon.
