Harry Hunt will get his second new co-driver in as many events when he chases IRC 2WD Cup success on the Cyprus Rally, the final round of the all-action Intercontinental Rally Challenge.

With regular navigator Robbie Durant still recovering from the back injury sustained when the pair crashed on the Mabanol Sliven Rally in Bulgaria last month, Hunt has drafted in David Moynihan to partner him on the mixed-surface event based in Pafos from 2-4 November.

Despite the Cyprus Rally being their first event together, Hunt’s team manager Iwan Evans expects there to be no problems while the temporary partnership gels.

“David Moynihan steps into the co-driver’s seat for the first time and this will be something else for them both to get used to, but David is a great professional and I’m sure he’ll rise to the occasion,” said Evans. “Unfortunately Robbie is still not well enough to compete after their accident in Bulgaria, but he’s making a great recovery at home and can’t wait to get back.”

Moynihan co-drove Marty McCormack on two rounds of the IRC this year, the Donnelly Group Circuit of Ireland Rally and the Giru di Corsica-Tour de Corse.
