ERC: Tanak to get ERC runs in Fiesta R5?

Malcolm Wilson considering fielding one of his WRC stars in a Ford Fiesta R5 in the 2014 European Rally Championship.
M-Sport boss Malcolm Wilson is considering bolstering his company's presence in the FIA European Rally Championship and has revealed he might put Ott Tanak out in a Ford Fiesta R5 on selected events.

Kajetan Kajetanowicz is flying the flag for M-Sport's Fiesta R5 project in the ERC and has shown great pace on his three appearances so far this season, landing a podium on the most recent round in Greece.

However, Wilson wants to ensure that the Fiesta R5 continues to run at the head of the field in the face of opposition from Peugeot's 208T16, so is looking into the possibility of getting another star name into one of his cars alongside Kajetanowicz, the four-time Polish champion.

“I've no plans to at the moment but there's nothing to say that we won't put Ott Tanak out,” Wilson confirmed. “I need to make sure our cars are winning wherever possible so we will probably do something.”

With Kajetanowicz not including the Discover Northern Ireland Circuit of Ireland Rally on his schedule for 2014, Robert Barrable will be the lone Fiesta R5 representative when the ERC resumes in Belfast from 17-19 April next week.
