Geoff Jones, one of Britain’s quickest rally drivers will return to competition on the opening round of the WWRS R.A.C. Championship when he drives an ex-factory Vauxhall Chevette on the Rally Marketing Mid Wales Stages (3 March).Geoff Jones Mid Wales

In 1985, Jones won the corresponding Newtown Stages in his own Chevette and 28 years on he will now take on an incredibly strong pack of Ford Escort Mk2s in the HSR owned by Baz Jordan. The rally car preparation ace says he can’t wait to get back into a Chevette and is due to be testing the ex-Russell Gooding car today (13 February.

“It’s a real trip down memory lane,” said Jones. “I love an Escort, and started rallying in one, but the chance to get back in a Chevette is a dream-come-true. I won’t be cruising round and stages like Pike’s Peak will be a lot of fun. It is one of my old favourite rallies. There is no pressure, but I hope to be competitive against the Escorts.

Jones admits that he would love to do more events in the car, but has to fit his own sport around commitments to running cars for customers. “We’ll see how we get on, but I need to do more rallying,” said Jones.
