The special award winners from the fourth round of the 2018 FUCHS LUBRICANTS MSA British Historic Rally Championship, the Red Kite Stages (24 June), have been announced.

Ken Graham and Rory McCann collected the award for the ‘Best Improvement on Seeding’, which is a set of axle brake pads from Mintex. They took their class C2 Hillman Avenger to an impressive 16th overall in the historic results as they battled for class victory. Ultimately, the Northern Ireland/Isle of Man crew missed a class win by just three seconds.

The ‘Spirit of the Rally’ product award from Fuchs Lubricants went to Barry Stevenson-Wheeler who had worked flat out to repair his Ford Escort Mk2 after an off on the Carlisle Stages two weekends earlier. Barry and his team worked tirelessly to get the car ready for the Red Kite but were dealt another blow when he had stop and change a puncture on the opening stage. They battled on and set three top 10 times in the remaining four stages.

Finally, Paul Barrett won the ‘Hard Charger’ award of a 20-litre jerry can from Green Valley Industrial Supplies. Despite two punctures in the first three stages, he fought back to grab victory on the final stage and get his title bid back on track after a non-finish on the Carlisle Stages.
