Protasov waits for 2015 confirmation
Ukraine driver must wait before finalising 2015 schedule
In a repeat of last year, the Czech driver will tackle 12 rounds of the World Rally Championship, missing only Rally Australia for budgetary reasons.
Prokop, who is co-driven by Jan Tománek, will use his 2014-spec Fiesta for the opening four rounds, but hopes to take delivery of a 2015-spec car from M-Sport in time for Rally Argentina.
The 32-year-old is one of the most experienced drivers in this year’s championship. He made his WRC debut in 2005 and was crowned Junior Champion in 2009. His association with Ford goes back to 2010, when he drove a Super 2000 model in the SWRC. He remained in a Fiesta when he progressed to the World Rally Car class in 2012.
