Kyle Sarasin, the 2007 Rookie of the Year, recently met with Malcolm Wilson to discuss Sarasin.
Malcolm Wilson, the managing director of M-Sport, which manages, prepares and supports the
BP-Ford Abu Dhabi entry in the World Rally Championship invited Sarasin to the spendour of
Dovenby Hall in Cumbria, U.K., the home of M-Sport.

Malcolm Wilson, with over 20 years’ experience of rallying at world rally championship level,
has won two British national titles. As recently as November, 2008, Wilson, as a driver, claimed
an emphatic victory in the 2008 RAC Rally in North Yorkshire, Cumbria and the Scottish Borders.

Kyle Sarasin, at 19 years-old, has rewritten the records in U.S. rally, becoming the youngest
driver in Rally America history to: win Rookie of the Year (in a Ford Focus, earning a 4th place
overall at the Ojibwe Rally, the only 2WD in the top ten and the highest finish for a 2WD in Rally
America history), earn a podium finish (in his first career open class race!), win a special stage,
set a new stage record (actually, two, at the oldest performance rally in North America), finish
on the overall championship podium, and his highlight make it to the quarterfinals of the 2008
ESPN X Games, succumbing only to the ultimate gold medalist.

Under Malcolm Wilson’s direction, Sarasin will provisionally compete in five World Rally
Championship events including Italy, Poland, Finland, Spain and Great Britain. Wilson, and M-
Sport, will coordinate logistics and Sarasin will continue to secure sponsorship to compete in the
Ford Fiesta SportTrophy International series.

Sarasin will continue his quest to become the “Two-Continent Kid,” competing in both the U.S.
rally series as well as the World Rally Championship. Sarasin’s ultimate goal is to reach the
podium in the World Rally Championship on his way to a World Rally championship.
Sarasin’s dream, to be a part of Ford’s World Rally Championship with Malcolm Wilson’s M-
Sport, looks to be soon within reach. Support remains the key to Kyle’s success. With the
proper sponsorship and backing, Sarasin looks to continue to the top of the ultimate rally series,
the World Rally Championship.
