cambrian14 (9)The climax of the BTRDA 2014 championship saw Steve Perez (Focus WRC) and Paul Bird (Focus WRC) co head-to-head to decide who would be champion. The scenario was simple, win the rally and you will be champion and after the 1st stage Perez, co-driven by Paul Spooner, was fastest through the stage. Bird, co-driven by Aled Davies, had gone off and dropped a minute to his rival. Stage 2 saw a twist as Dave Weston & Kirsty Riddick (Impreza WRC) went fastest to take the lead from Perez. It was then the Bird onslaught started as he went fastest on 5 of the remaining 6 stages, with Weston taking the only other one, but it was not enough as Bird ended up 12 seconds behind Perez. The pair tied on points but Perez was champion, whilst Weston showed a statement of intent as he took a maiden BTRDA win by 20 seconds. Read More »
