Brendan Reeves will replace Simon Evans in the Mazda 2 this year

Australian World Rally driver Brendan Reeves will contest a full season in the Australian Rally Championship this year.

After contesting for the past two years in the World Rally Championship Academy, plus scoring his first WRC test, Reeves will return to Australia to compete with the RallySchool Rally Team, driving a Mazda 2.

Reeves and his co-driving sister Rhianon Smyth will test the Mazda 2 next month. It is the same car that Simon Evans drove for the team last year.

“I’m really excited to be part of the RallySchool Rally Team,” he said.

“Rhianon and I have both been working closely with RallySchool for the last five years as instructors and to now be able to compete in the recently-formed rally team is great.

“We’ve had enormous support from our Australian fans over the last two years while we’ve competed in the WRC Academy and to now be able to compete on home soil in front of them will be a real buzz.

“We are also really looking forward to competing in Rally Australia, a dual WRC and ARC event, in Coffs Harbour in September.”

The opening round of the Australian Rally Championship will be held in Canberra on March 1-3.
