JMS_Brawdy-13_Car-3_Med_01Carnforth teenager Arron Newby continued his sensational rise to prominence to win the Brawdy Stages Rally this weekend and in doing so, took his victory tally to five in the TEGSport Subaru Impreza.

Held in Pembrokeshire, South Wales, the 18 year old was back in action at the event following his third place finish back in 2011 when he was contesting the Junior class but this time around it was the much more powerful Subaru Impreza he was competing in.

Along with co-driver Garry Tomlinson, the pair were fastest on all six stages of the RAF military base and at the end of the 56 stage miles, they were over one minute ahead of their nearest rivals such was their dominance.

Arron Newby:  “I’m so happy to have five wins under my belt and I can’t say how much I enjoy driving this car. The Pirelli RX7 tyres were absolutely spot on and the car ran perfectly on the VP racing fuel were were kindly supplied with. We had a good lead with just two stages to go and dad said to back it off but there was no way I was going to as I wanted a clean sweep of all stages! Thanks to Garry who did a fantastic job on the maps and to the TEGSport team for their superb efforts once again.”

Stuart Newby, TEGSport Team Owner:  “Arron has once again proved his pace in the Subaru and it’s been particularly pleasing as there was some tough opposition up at the front including past multiple winners of the event. But he made it clear on the first stage that he was here for the win and once again he’s come up trumps with yet another victory. It’s a fantastic result and made the long trip to Wales worthwhile so well done to the team for a great job.”
