At long last Chris Atkinson managed to pull all the right strings in order to secure a return to the World Rally Championship scene. Australian driver will compete in next month’s Rally Mexico as a part of Monster World Rally Team. And yes, Atkinson’s team mate will be Mr. Hoonigan himself, Ken Block, who is still recovering from the traumas sustained in that horrific interview with, well, Ken Block.
Atko will drive Ford Fiesta RS WRC and he still did not confim this news, but his name is on the entry list. Atkinson was expected to compete in Rally Sweden in a Subaru, but plans did not materialize. This time, however, we hope Atkinson has a solid programme in place!
