Reeves is raring to return to rally circuit

Australian Rally Championship leader Brendan Reeves is keen to get back behind the wheel of his Mazda2 when the series resumes this month.

Reeves, from Wedderburn, heads into the International Rally of Queensland quietly confident after wins in the opening two rounds.

Starting on June 20, the three-day event is the first endurance race of the 2014 championship.

And with his preference for longer stages and rallies, Reeves is relishing the thought of competing on the Sunshine Coast roads.

As well as contesting the ARC component of the rally, Reeves and co-driving sister Rhianon Gelsomino will also be vying for Asia-Pacific Rally Championship points because the event forms part of both series.

Despite spending no time driving his RallySchool.com.au Mazda2 since the last round of the championship in Western Australia in April, Reeves believes it won't take him long to get back into the groove.

He aims to resume the fast but consistent form he has produced so far this season.

Reeves heads into the International Rally of Queensland on 163 points, 34 points ahead of nearest rival, Scott Pedder (Renault Clio).

There are 86 points up for grabs over the weekend, so the battle will be fierce from the outset.
