Imagine winning a stage on a world championship rally when you're just 18 years old. That's exactly what Matt Wilson has done in Argentina this weekend. (Actually he might be 19 now, I'm not 100% sure!) AND he finished in the top 10. AND he beat Marcus Gronholm!

Is he our best prospect for getting a British driver into a works team in the WRC again? Matt's Dad may be the Ford team boss with all the advantages that brings, but his Dad can't drive the car for him!

I wouldn't say he's the best prospect, as you never know who could be round the corner, but it looks it at the moment.

Malcolm has no doubt helped get Matt where he is. Natural really, if your dad is a big name driver then it's bound to run off... same way it did with Graham and Damon Hill. If you're growing up used to the scene then you'll get into it. Plus, I guess the opportunity to take a car for a spin round Wythop woods was always there, whereas to many it would be a case of spending lots of money to even get close...
