After their historic debut at the World Rally Championship level just a couple of days ago at Rally de España 2012, John Powell and co-driver Mike Fennell Jr. may have to actually drive in ice come next year at WRC Rally Sweden with the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team.
According to T&T’s Powell, you may have to mark February 7-10, 2013 on the calendar as he heads to Sweden with M-Sport Ford WRT. Powell added, “I believe this is a Caribbean thing, whether you are from Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, or elsewhere. I want to thank everybody, I didn’t get here alone…I never believed for a moment that I got here by myself. It is with good, consistent support from the spectators, my fans, my family, the media, my sponsors, Trinidad’s rally club and marshals that we are here. This is why the decision I had to make was very difficult. However, we are happy to secure a deal with M-Sport Ford World Rally Team to do a few of the championship rounds next year.”
