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 »

SONY DSCTorrential rain had fallen on the Saturday in South Wales and whilst Sunday was dry and pretty good for October, parts of Walters showed the weather’s efforts from the day before. We had true safari conditions in places with waterlogged tracks and bomb holes along with treacherous downhill sections. Chris Bird (Milner) was in fine form to take the win and seal the 2014 crown.  Andy Degiulio (Milner) kept him honest with 2nd place and the podium was completed by Steve Mitchell after some early dramas.

trackrod14 (8)It was a tight battle at the top. Steve Perez & Paul Spooner (Focus WRC) only set one fastest stage time on the first stage but they held on to take victory from Paul Bird & Aled Davies (Focus WRC) by 3.4 seconds. Bird went fastest on the final 3 stages but it proved not be enough, so the title fight is set up superbly for the final round in 3 weeks time. David Weston & Kirsty Riddick (Imprzea WRC) completed the podium just over 20 seconds further back, after setting the fastest time through the 2nd stage of the rally. Ignoring the 1400’s the first crew home in the 2WD rally, aka Silver Star, were Martyn Hawkswell & Benjamin Cohen (Escort MkII). Read More »

andysecondThe 2014 Brick & Steel Junior 1000 Championship paid its third visit to Kames Motorsport Complex in East Ayrshire on 19th October for the ABR Travel Services Junior Rally. This would be the penultimate round of the Championship and final year placings depended on good results. To say that the weather was challenging would be understating the conditions faced by the 14 to 17 year old competitors in their 1000cc cars. One minute the wind blew strongly, next it blew even stronger but with heavy rain downpours and occasionally it was just plain windy with the sun breaking out – but this was the minority situation.
