Moscatt teams with former World Champion
- 2nd March 2007, 4:30pm
The main priority for Martin and Dale will be an attack on the 2007 Chinese Rally Championship as part of the KST Ralliart China team. Both Martin and Dale have competed in the Chinese Championship over recent years and having both tasted victory here separately in the past they are hoping to spray some more champagne in 2007.
Martin’s successful career in British rallying lead him to a Production World Rally Championship campaign in 2002 and 2003. For his first year on the PWRC circuit, Martin earned fifth outright, but followed that with a title win the following season. Martin has also held the titles of British Group N Champion, Outright Rally Champion and Formula Rally Champion over recent years.
"I am very happy to announce this new partnership with Martin,” said Dale. “Obviously his track record speaks for itself so competing in China, which is currently the most competitive Group N national series in the world, with a proven world champion is really exciting for me and I can't wait to get started.
"We actually met over in China in 2005 and became good friends while competing against each other up there over the past couple of years,” explained Dale. “I am also looking forward to working with KST Ralliart too. They are the reigning Teams Champions in China so it will be great to be working with them also.
"The first round of the series is in Shanghai. I won that event in 2005 and was runner-up in 2006 after narrowly missing the win, so I obviously enjoy the event and know what is needed to do well there,” said Dale.
The Chinese National Championship begins on the 24th of March in Shanghai. Rounds in Pan Zhihua (19-21 May), Liupanshui (14-16 July), Kaiyang (3-6 August), Yanji (1-3 September) and Longyou (11-13 November) follow. A further release will be sent closer to the Shanghai start date. Other events aside from the Chinese rounds are also proposed.
