Australian Reeves finished fourth in the 2012 FIA WRC Academy standings and his performances this year earned him an invitation to a one-hour test session in the Fiesta.
“I’m stoked to be given this chance to drive a Fiesta World Rally Car,” said Reeves. “It is a nice reward for our efforts this year and driving the WRC will give me a real taste of the next level of the sport.
“I had the chance to sit beside Ken Block in his Fiesta just prior to Rally Finland this year and it was a great experience. To now have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a similar car myself is fantastic. Testing the WRC is a great opportunity. Hopefully it leads to more similar opportunities in the future. I’d really like to thank M-Sport for the amazing efforts they put into the WRC Academy this year and also for giving me the chance to take part in the test drive.”
Reeves has yet to confirm his programme for 2013 but hopes to be able to continue in the WRC. His WRC Academy rivals, Elfyn Evans, John MacCrone, Jose Suarez, and Pontus Tidemand will also get hour-long runs in the Fiesta RS WRC.
