The Ford Martini World Rally team moves straight from this weeks Rally of Portugal to Spain for a five day test in preparation for the Rally Catalunya. Colin McRae will be accompanied by Simon Jean-Joseph for the five day asphalt test which starts on Friday. Malcolm Wilson said ''Catalunya is the first true dry asphalt rally of the season and it is important to put in as much pre event testing as possible. We will be going to Spain as soon as the Rally of Portugal finishes where we will meet up with Simon Jean-Joseph. We want to ensure that both drivers have time to experience the dry asphalt roads in the Ford Focus prior to the rally.'' The Rally Catalunya is the fifth round of the FIA World Rally Championship. It runs from Monday 19 - Wednesday 21 April and is based at the Spanish seaside resort of Lloret de Mar.
