Laverty enjoys Monte-Carlo rally action

Laverty enjoys Monte-Carlo rally action

It has been a quiet winter for Eugene Laverty up until yesterday when the 2015 FIA World Rally Championship kicked off in style.

Celebrities from the world of sport, film and music were invited to sample all that the championship has to offer with a very special passenger ride through the streets of the principality's world-famous Formula One circuit.

Alongside the Drive M7 Aspar rider Eugene Laverty was Formula One race winner David Coulthard and Welsh songstress Elin Fflur who all turned co-driver for the afternoon as Elfyn Evans demonstrated the power and performance of his Ford Fiesta RS WRC.

Eugene Laverty: "That was even better than I expected. Watching Elfyn [Evans] driving – holding the steering wheel with his finger tips and braking and accelerating using the tips of his toes – was incredible. I was looking across at him as much as I was looking out of the front windscreen! I really enjoyed the experience and it's certainly one that I'll remember for a long time."

Now Eugene flies to Ireland to attend the Adelaide Motorbike Awards in Belfast where he has been nominate for three awards.
