The 23 year old Cantabrian has just taken delivery of a Prodrive-built 2010 N15 model Impreza WRX that is virtually brand new, having only contested a handful of tarmac rallies in Portugal last year.
"We are delighted to have been able to get such an up-to-date version," said a very happy Matt, "and to get one that has been built by Prodrive - renowned for their experience with Subaru in the World Rally Championship - is a real bonus..."

Matt plans to have the car out on as many rallysprints and hillclimbs as possible, with his first full rally being at Westland on March 19th.
