Horsey ready to "Kick" up a gear on Wales Rally GB

Kenyan rally driver Peter Horsey has had a confidence boost ahead of next weekends Wales Rally GB after clinching a sponsorship deal with the Kick Energy drink brand just days before tackling the final round of his maiden season in the World Rally Championship! Peter is the African representative in the Pirelli Star Driver scheme.

27 year old Peter, from Mombasa in Kenya, has so far contested five rounds of the World Rally Championship in 2010 and has shown improved pace on every event. The lessons learnt in the international arena have helped with his domestic rallying exploits as Peter proved with a set of fastest stage times on the penultimate round of the Kenyan National Rally Championship recently! It is this type of performance that has led to the marketing partnership with the respected energy drink brand and Peter will be aiming for a good run on the final round of the 2010 FIA World Rally Championship.

2010 has been an incredible year. I have contested some of the best rallies in the World and met a lot of fantastic people. It is a little sad that this weekend is the final round of my program for this year but my aim is to do the very best that I can as a thank you to both Pirelli and Ralliart Italy for all the hard work and effort they have put into us.

I am also very proud to represent Kick Energy this weekend. As a sportsman I have learned to appreciate how important it is to be alert and truly focused and this is definitely the best energy drink for me!

Peter and Welsh co-driver Calvin Cooledge will begin their preparations for this weekend by conducting the two day pre-event recce on Tuesday and Wednesday. After a ceremonial start in Cardiff on Thursday night the crews face three days of high speed rallying action through Mid and South Wales before the final ceremony back in Cardiff on Sunday afternoon.
