2014 Scottish Rally Champions Euan Thorburn and Paul Beaton are looking to swap their gravel expertise to asphalt as they aim to compete in the 2015 European Rally Championship.

Behind the wheel of their Ford Fiesta S2000 the first round the pair will enter is the Circuit of Ireland on April 2-4, but they are also looking to compete on round 5, the Belgium Geko Ypres Rally in June, and possibly beyond!

Thorburn said: “I am very much looking forward to a new challenge this year. I don’t know how much of the ERC we can afford to do but the Circuit will definitely be a great start.” Thorburn is hoping to test his Fiesta S2000’s tarmac suspension setup over the next few weeks including an entry in to the Midlands Rally on Sunday, March 29.
