The Nicky Grist Stages (Saturday 10 July) won’t be easy, as it will be Matt Edwards’ first gravel rally for 17 months and his maiden forestry event in his Yuasa Rally Team Volkswagen Polo GTI R5. Yet the double British Rally champion aims for a strong finish to maintain the great start that he has made to his title defence.

Matt, who won back-to-back BRC drivers’ titles in 2018 and 2019, took the Melvyn Evans Motorsport-run Polo GTI R5 to fourth place on the opening Neil Howard Stages. Only a time penalty denied him a podium finish on his first event in the Pirelli-shod car. Read More »

Matt Edwards will return to the British Rally Championship in 2021 in a bid to secure his third title in a row, but switches to a Volkswagen Polo R5 for his potential history-making campaign.

Backed by global battery giant Yuasa, who returns as title sponsor for the second consecutive season, Edwards will mark his first full BRC season outside of the M-Sport Ford marque since joining the series in 2016, piloting a Melvyn Evans Motorsport run Polo R5.

Edwards will also be joined by long-term supporters, leisure industry leaders Swift Group as well as a new partner, Volkswagen Group Genuine Parts provider, TPS.

And the talented 26-year old Machynlleth-born driver said that finishing runner-up to local driver and last year’s event winner Matt Edwards, particularly after such a long lay-off since his last gravel rally in an R5 car, was “as good as a win”. Read More »
