Reeves talks about his WRCar test
- 8th December 2012, 9:43am
After first being shown the tricks of the trade by FIA WRC regular, Matthew Wilson, Reeves then got behind the wheel himself. Tackling a 2 kilometre stage of broken asphalt and loose gravel, the experience served as a taster and made Reeves even more determined to secure a drive in a World Rally Car in the future.
He commented, “Today was amazing – a big thanks to M-Sport for letting me drive the car [Ford Fiesta RS WRC] as I’ve always wanted the chance to get behind the wheel of a world car. I went to one of Ken Block’s tests this year and sat in with him, but to actually get behind the wheel, get a feel of the car and understand all the engineering that goes into it was amazing.
“It is such a simple car to drive, but I think to drive on the limit would be another experience. Having the test drive makes me want to compete with one even more. I would be in one now if I could, but I think there’s a lot of work before we can make that a reality just yet.
“We didn’t have the best end to the season, so to turn it around and come here with the chance to drive a car like this was just incredible. I really enjoyed the whole experience.”
After the test, Reeves recorded his thoughts about the experience. Listen to the audio here.
