He said: "Wales Rally GB was a fantastic opportunity from the Welsh Development Agency.
"In competitive terms, though, it was one of those rallies where we were on the back foot as we broke a driveshaft on the second stage and then had to fight from the back of the field for leg two.
"I kept my head down and kept pushing but conditions were really harsh, especially in what is a Group N car, essentially a modified road car.
"We made it to the finish, which was a result in itself as it was one of the hardest rallies I have ever done."
There was no rest for Moore as his FST UK Championship win earned him a place in the Fiesta SportingTrophy Shootout for a 12-month contract at M-Sport, who run not only the FST UK but also the works BP-Ford World Rally Team.
