Monster reveals Atkinson's livery


The Monster World Rally Team have revealed pictures of the car Chris Atkinson will drive at this week's Rally Mexico.

The Australian's Ford Fiesta RS WRC will run in similar striking livery to the sister Monster car of Ken Block.

Atkinson will drive the car in its new colour scheme for the first time at shakedown and then qualifying today.

The Leon event is Atkinson's first World Rally Championship outing in more than three years and, after testing the Fiesta in the UK, the former Subaru star can't wait to get back out on the stages.

"It felt great to be back in a WRC-level car," said Atkinson. "All of the cars have changed a lot since 2008, but the Fiesta felt really good and I think I'll be able to get some good stage times out of it this weekend during the rally.

"I've had a great finish here before, so I'm feeling pretty confident about this race. I'm also thankful for the opportunity to join up with MWRT for this race, it's going to be a lot of fun."
