British rally champion, Guy Wilks, is in a race against time to land a seat with the Subaru World Rally Team for 2009.  

Wilks is appealing for all British rally fans, motor clubs, businesses to get involved in the Wilks 500 Club investment/sponsorship scheme.  

"Driving for Subaru would be the realisation of a dream for me and I think it would really give British rally fans something to cheer. It would be fantastic,” Wilks said.  

"We have spent a long time working on the Wilks 500 Club, making sure there is something for everyone and it offers real value for money.

"Whether it's five pals clubbing together or a business who sees this as a big marketing opportunity, I would be very grateful for your support."  

Subaru have said that Wilks would receive equal machinery to Petter Solberg and Chris Atkinson if the Wilks 500 Club can raise the finance to secure a third seat in the team next year.  

"David Richards has talked about wanting a Brit back in his team in the near future - and I want to be that Brit,” he added.  

"It's so frustrating to sit on the sidelines and watch my old JWRC rivals Dani Sordo, P-G, Urmo Aava, Jari-Matti Latvala - all guys I could beat - setting fastest times and taking podiums in the WRC.”

Wilks is offering 500 shares at a cost of £2,000 per share to fund his 2009 WRC program.
