GaryWrightInActionPR1Popular BRC Challenge contender Gary Wright will head to Welshpool next weekend for the first round of the 2013 NGK BRC Challenge; Rally North Wales. Wright, from Ormskirk in Lancashire will be joined this year by co-driver Ross Hynd who will make the long trip south to each event from his home town of Irvine, North Ayrshire.

Having spent the 2012 championship season developing his MG ZR rally car, Wright will be battling for class RC2 honours in the Championship which will take competitors to 7 events throughout the year including rallies in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Although he is no stranger to the BRC Challenge having contested several events in the 2012 calendar, a new co-driver will be an exciting development for the Lancastrian.

“I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into the BRC Challenge with Ross this year and it will be great to develop the confidence as the year progresses.  Whilst we haven’t secured the budget to do all the events on the calendar, we will be trying our best to get some solid results in the competitive RC2 class. There is a great mixture of events in the championship and after a development year for the car, we are both ready for a title fight!”

Although a mere 20 years of age, Hynd has plenty of co-driving experience behind him and will guide Wright around some of the most infamous stages in the UK during the  season.  He was recognised by the Scottish Rally Championship committee in 2012 when they voted him as one of the top co drivers in Scotland and awarded him with the Nicky Jack Memorial Trophy.

Based in Welshpool, Rally North Wales will see BRC Challenge competitors leave the city centre start at around midday on Saturday 6th April to tackle over 50 stage miles in and around the infamous Dyfi and Gartheniog forest complex before returning to spray the champagne over the finish ramp at around 9pm that evening.
