Khalid Al Qassimi's co-driver Nicky Beech is leaving the BP-Abu Dhabi team, and Michael Orr, who has co-driven for Matthew Wilson in 2006 and 2007, is being considered as his replacement.
Orr's place with the Stobart team driver Wilson has already been filled by Scott Martin, with whom Wilson started his world championship career in 2004 and 2005.
Martin was the co-driver for Barry Clark when he won the Fiesta ST international trophy in 2006 and 2007. The new Stobart team leader Gigi Galli is back again with Giovanni Bernacchini, his co-driver in 2006, after rallying in 2007 with the Honda driver Luca Betti.
