AlexKihurani_headshot1Cumbrian rally ace Aaron McClure is joined by new co-driver, Alex Kihurani for the 2016 season.

Flookburgh rally driver Aaron McClure will have a new flag on the windows of his Mitsubishi Lancer in 2016, as world renowned co-driver Alex Kihurani joins the 21 year old for an assault on the BTRDA Production Cup.  The 29 year old experienced American, who is now living in London, has a wealth of experience in several major rally championships both at home and in Europe. He will partner up with McClure for a busy season in the popular all-gravel championship which kicks off with the Cambrian Rally in February.

Having recently announced continued backing from All Floors Express during his second season in the NR4 category, McClure has been on the hunt for a new co-driver for the year ahead thanks to last Elliott Edmondson’s ever expanding programme in the British Rally Championship.  After two years together, the Cumbrian would need to find a suitable replacement and set about searching for an eager co-driver to fill the now vacant seat.

“Having a quality co-driver alongside you is just as important as a good engine or tyres” explains McClure, “and finding someone that you feel comfortable with both in and out the car is vital if you are to have a chance of winning together.  Elliott (Edmondson) and I worked really well together but he has other commitments in 2016 so I set about looking for someone equally as fun and capable”.

It wasn’t long before McClure had arranged the new look partnership for the season ahead.  “I knew Alex from the British Rally Championship a few years ago and his experience in the sport is really impressive.  We get on really well too so it was a natural fit for us both and I`m really looking forward to getting out on the stages together.”

Alex is equally keen to get the season underway. “I’m really excited to be sitting alongside Aaron this coming season. Last year he proved he has the pace to win in the most competitive class in the BTRDA, even as he continues to learn the car. Also, we get on really well, and the championship title seems viable, so I’m looking forward to a year filled with great battles and quality, fun events a little closer to home.”
