Cave satisfied after Sardinia test run

Tom Cave completes constructive pre-Sardinia test
Tom Cave got his preparations for Rally d'Italia-Sardegna underway with a successful test in Wales recently.

Cave will contest at least six rounds of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge in a Proton Satria Neo Super 2000, starting with the island event from 4-6 June.

The 18-year-old British driver covered approximately 80 kilometres during the test, which he described as 'constructive'.

"The stage we used was a bit rough, dry and dusty so a reasonable start for Sardinia," he said. "We started tweaking the settings to work towards a base set-up for the rally and I didn't feel out of my depth in the car at all. In fact, the harder you work it, the better it is."

Cave, who will be co-driven by fellow Welshman Craig Parry, has already tackled one round of the IRC this season, taking a Ford Fiesta ST to eighth place in the IRC 2WD Cup section of Rallye Automobile Monte-Carlo in January.
