WRC hopeful Tom Cave has said he is 'excited' to be heading back to Rallyday this weekend for the UK's Premier Rally Car Show at Wiltshire's Castle Combe Circuit.

Cave will represent both the MSA British Rally Championship, where he is currently in second place and the International Rally Drivers Club, of which he is a member.

The 21 year-old has been absent from the event since 2010 but loves the opportunity to drive on the feature stage in front of rally fans without the pressure of competition.

Cave last attended in his semi-works Proton Satria Neo S2000 three years ago and represented the IRDC on that occasion. However, this year he will fly both the IRDC and the BRC flag in his DMS Morris Lubricants-run Citroen DS3, as one of several drivers from the series supporting the organiser's presence at the event.

"I am really excited to be heading back to Rallyday," Cave stated. "The last time I was there was in the Proton and we had a great time; the organisation is amazing and the atmosphere is like nothing I've ever experienced.

"I am also very proud to have been asked to support both the British Rally Championship and the IRDC. The BRC is incredibly competitive this year and it will be quite nice to be in a rallying environment and be able to relax a little, spend some time with the other drivers and have some fun without the pressure to chase a result.

"The IRDC is a wonderful organisation and I have been a member since I started rallying, It's very inspirational and I am delighted to be able to support it, as well as the BRC."

Rallyday, which takes place on Saturday September 21, has become a mecca for rally fans, thanks to its huge support from not only the fans but manufacturers and drivers. Names such as Petter Solberg, Jari-Matti Latvala and Alister McRae have all driven a variety of rally cars around the feature stage, using part of the Wiltshire circuit and this year, 2013 World Rally Championship leader, Sebastien Ogier, will headline, along with Elfyn Evans, Guy Wilks and Paddy Hopkirk.
