Wilks hasn’t competed in anger since his outing on RACMSA Rally of Scotland in a Peugeot UK 207 Super 2000 last October.

“I’ve missed rallying and this is the longest period I’ve been out of a rally car since the start of my career,” said the 31-year-old, who claimed his sole IRC victory in Scotland in 2009.

“This is a car built and run by a factory team which means it’s a great opportunity – I want to make the most of it. It’s a one-off now, but who knows what might happen.”
