Dean Herridge to drive for CUSCO in 2008

Three drivers will compete for the CUSCO Rally team in the 2008 Asia Pacific Rally Championship. Hiroshi Yanagisawa will drive six rounds of THE championship, while Australia Dean Herridge will join the team to compete in the three Pacific rounds – his goal to win the first Pacific Cup.

“This is a great opportunity to drive for one on the top teams in the APRC” say’s Herridge. “I am very much looking forward to the challenge and my aim will be to try and win the Pacific Cup with Cusco as well as work closely with Yanagisawa san to try and maximize Cusco’s efforts this year. I think there are some real benefits to be had from running two cars and I hope this will help Cusco with their efforts in the Championship.”

“For me the biggest challenge will come from New Caledonia. I have no experience at this rally and of course it will be the first event with the team. Saying that I hope for a good result, so I can push on roads I have experience on, like Canberra and New Zealand”
