"We really enjoyed working with them last season and are really grateful for their long-term support. We have some exciting plans for the new season and can’t wait to get started.”

Martin Ellison, head of sales and marketing at Cirrus Research, added: “Our continued relationship with Ashleigh Morris Rallying supports us being at the forefront of research and development within motorsport and the automotive sector.”

This year the team will also be supported by Morris Lubricants, Real Systems Controls and Demon Tweeks.

The car will be prepared and serviced on-event by FJ-RS Engineering who has more than 25 years’ experience and will ensure the car is prepared and maintained to the highest of standards.

Ashleigh added: "We’re really pleased to have FJ-RS Engineering running the car this year.

"Howard’s expertise has helped us set up the car and we are well prepared for the new season and can’t wait to get started.”
