After months of no motorsport, in the flesh, it was great to be out again albeit for a test session. Ahead of their 2021 JWRC assault, Jon Armstrong & Phil Hall, were doing their familiarisation and set up work ahead of Rally Croatia. Jon was reunited with his old Fiesta R2 he used back in the 2013 season. The narrow and bumpy asphalt of Bont provides a great test venue, added to which the gradient changes give the 2.2 mile circuit everything you could need. There was another crew also at the test as Richard Wells & Calvin Houldsworth were out in their Fiesta R5, looking forward to a season of tarmac rallying. Read More »

Darell & Nicky Staniforth (Mini Cooper S) were an excellent 2nd after dropping back in the latter part of the event. Completing the podium, starting at car number 43, were David Alcok & Barry Green in their Porsche 924S. Read More »
