The win by Andy Burton and Robin Kellard in their Peugeot Cosworth on last weekend’s (Saturday, March 5) Malcolm Wilson Rally brought Kumho’s tally of 2011 rally victories to three in just three weeks. Moreover, with the Subaru Impreza of Roger Chilman and Andrew Sankey finishing second overall, and the Mitsubishi Evo IX of Stephen Petch and John Richardson coming home eighth, Kumho-shod cars filled three of the top 10 places on this popular event.

Saturday’s meeting was the 36th running of the Malcolm Wilson rally, which was sponsored by the man himself and based at his immaculately presented M-Sport premises at Dovenby Hall, Cockermouth – the home of the Ford WRC rally teams. The competition was run through stunning Lake District scenery, for which the 45 miles of prime forestry commission roads were split into seven special stages.

With the first two rounds to his name, Burton already has a handy lead in the eight-rally Silverstone Tyres BTRDA Rally Championship, the next round of which is the Somerset Stages event on April 16.

Said Kumho’s European Motorsport Manager Steve Thompson, “Andy is clearly on a roll and our gravel tyres once again proved to be the best rubber for the job. We will continue to look after our growing number of runners to the best of our ability and hope the season continues as successfully as it has started.”
