Welshman Elfyn Evans won the opening round of the World Rally Championship's principal support series (WRC 2) in Monte Carlo.

Evans, alongside fellow countryman, co-driver Craig Parry ended the event eighth overall.

The 27-year-old is competing in the opening two rounds of the second tier of the World Rally Championship.

He was not selected as one of M-Sport's main drivers for next season's Championship.

Dolgellau-born Evans finished the 2015 Championship season seventh overall.

But M-Sport managing director Malcolm Wilson signed Citroen driver Mads Ostberg and young talent Eric Camilli as his main drivers for 2016.
