Yup...quite the rare event...usually only a couple guys a year at best run any WRC events.

Sean Johnston who was a Porsche GT3 driver and has been living in Germany for some time is behind the wheel of a JWRC Fiesta. His codriver is also an American, Alex Kihurani who lives in the UK currently. After Day 1 of the event they sit 42nd out of 60 still running and 7th of 13 in JWRC...this is quite impressive for an American. Can look him up on Twitter and Instagram and FB under Sean Johnston or Sean Johnston Racing.

And as an FYI, Sean will be running a full JWRC season in '19...another exceptional rarity for an American...

Truly a fantastic result for Sean Johnston! 35th out of 55 finishers and 5th out of 13 in JWRC. May seem nothing remarkable but for a 25 year old "kid" in a junior class it really is a great performance. Someone to watch the rest of the year.
