Top welsh rally driver Stuart Jones has confirmed that he will change cars for the final round of the 2007 Production World Rally Championship, Wales Rally GB

His home round of the year will mark his competition debut in the exciting new MG S2000 Sport.

Jones, the only Welshman contesting the PWRC in 2007, was recently involved in test and development work on the MSD built MG and on the back of this multi day test was able to conclude a deal to drive the car on Wales Rally GB.

It will make the 22-year-old the first registered driver in the Production World Rally Championship to use one of these exciting new age rally cars in the series.

"The MG S2000 Sport is an exciting new project and having spent time with the team testing and developing the car I decided that this is the way forward," he said. "The team were obviously pleased with my feedback because they have committed to running me on Wales Rally GB. Now it is up to me to prove that their decision was the correct one."

MSD is eager to put the MG into some top flight competition so that it can show its colours.

"Stuart is a fine young driver with enormous potential," MSD's David Whitehead said. "We are delighted to be working with him at Rally GB and look forward to a solid performance."
