Date of Birth:30 Jul 88
Car:Ford Fiesta R2
Fisher’s exposure to rallying came at a young age: his late uncle Bertie was an Irish rallying legend and his cousin Mark had made his WRC debut before their untimely deaths in a helicopter accident in 2001. Fisher’s own career began in 2005 and has produced several significant results both in two- and four-wheel-drive machinery. Third in the inaugural WRC Academy standings in 2011 following a late-season surge, which included a maiden category victory in France, the hugely talented Northern Irishman possesses an abundance of pace and potential, not to mention a university degree in construction, engineering and management, achieved last year. Fisher, who will be co-driven by the experienced Daniel Barritt, has spent the winter observing an intense fitness regime to ensure he’s in the best physical shape possible.
