Blundell goes rallying

Mark Blundell, former Formula 1 driver and television commentator, is to make his rallying debut on the Network Q Rally of Great Britain next month. Blundell will drive an MG ZR Super 1600. His co-driver for the event will be Formula 1 journalist Bob McKenzie of the Daily Express.

"It is a daunting challenge," says Blundell. "But it's one I'm relishing and I can't wait to get in the MG ZR to give it a crack. I have experience of racing single seaters from my F1 and Indycar days and I'm used to competing in more conventional 'roofed' cars in the Le Mans 24 Hours, but I've never had someone sitting beside me issuing instructions. That's going to take some getting used to. I'll have to remember to listen to my co-driver!"

Blundell is MG Sport & Racing's motorsport ambassador and has competed for the company at Le Mans for the last two years.
