Elfyn Rhys Evans (born 28 December 1988) is a British rally driver from Wales who competes in the World Rally Championship.
Born into Welsh rally royalty (his father Gwyndaf is a former British champion), Evans started his rallying career in 2007 when he came third in the Fiesta Sporting Trophy. The following year he won the series outright, in both the UK and Ireland.

He won the UK SportTrophy series again in 2010, as well as the Junior British Rally title and the Pirelli Star Driver shoot-out, the prize for which was a funded group N Subaru Impreza drive in the 2011 British Championship. Evans completed the season with two wins and second place in the championship.

His big break on the international stage came in 2012, when he won the FIA’s young driver category, the WRC Academy Cup. His prize was a funded WRC 2 programme in 2013, plus a job at M-Sport helping to test and develop its R5 and WRC Fiestas.

Evans took one win and two second places in his WRC 2 campaign, but it was his surprise debut in a World Rally Car at Rally Italia Sardegna that really got him noticed. Asked to stand in for an absent Nasser Al-Attiyah with just two days notice, and with a new co-driver, Evans finished a remarkable sixth overall.

That performance convinced M-Sport to offer him a full season at the sport’s highest level in 2014, as team-mate to Mikko Hirvonen. Despite an emphasis on learning, Evans impressed with six top-six finishes and career-best fourth places in Mexico and Germany.

Evans remains at M-Sport in 2015 where, following Hirvonen’s retirement, his team-mate will be another rising star, Ott Tänak.
