Nick is the number one rally driver to watch in 2011!

Milford Haven rally driver Nick Cristofaro, 17, received a boost to his preparations for the new season when the national Motorsport News newspaper last week listed him as the top rally driver to look out for in 2011, beating off tough competition from all over the UK.

After making his senior rally debut in 2010 Cristofaro has made quick progress and in 2011 he is moving up to the highest level of rallying in the country, the British Rally Championship (BRC). He will contest the championship in a Ford Fiesta ST car run by leading motorsport preparation company TEG Sport.

Joining existing supporters Pirelli on Cristofaro’s BRC campaign will be new sponsor Genpower Ltd. Genpower are the UK importers for Hyundai power products and their main business activities are supplying portable generators, pressure washers and water pumps to both business and private users throughout the UK.

Cristofaro will contest his first event of 2011 later in January when he takes part in the Red Kite Stages rally, the Welsh forestry event providing a good preparation for the BRC. Before this he will be present at the Autosport show which is held at the NEC in Birmingham from 13-16 January. Potential sponsors are invited to visit the MSA stand for a chat with Cristofaro, who will be working with motorsport celebrities such as Jenson Button.
