The Solway Car Club delivered another cracking rally for Junior drivers from all 3 UK Junior 1000 Rally Championships on Sunday 5th August. The usedcarparts Solway Coast Junior Rally – and this was the seventh running of the Junior only event – has become a bit of a tradition using the military roads within the Dundrennan base near Kirkcudbright. There was no real drama in the Junior event, the weather was nice and consistent and the competition was fierce as usual. Read More »

Neil Williams and Peter James made a triumphant return to the FUCHS LUBRICANTS MSA British Historic Rally Championship to take maximum points on round five, the Harry Flatters Rally on Epynt (Sunday 29 July).

The Ford Escort Mk2 crew used all their experience of the daunting asphalt stages over the Epynt ranges in Wales as testing weather conditions added to the challenge. Paul Barrett, co-driven by Dai Roberts, strengthened his place at the top of the championship with an excellent second place despite limited prior Epynt knowledge. Category victories went to Simon Tysoe/Paul Morris (Ford Escort Mk1) and Dessie Nutt/Geraldine McBride (Porsche 911). Read More »

An excellent first and final loop of stages saw Osian Pryce finish second on a wet, windy and extremely slippery SGC Printing Harry Flatters National A Rally, on what was his first asphalt event in a rear-wheel drive car. An engine misfire and an overshoot on the middle loop of stages were his only concerns, as he beat all but two of the four-wheel drive cars and would have finished fourth overall in his Escort Mk2, had the National A and B categories been combined.

Daniel Harper scored one of his best results of his rallying career when he finished fourth overall and took maximum Protyre MSA Asphalt Rally Championship points on the Carryduff Folklift Down Rally in his Minisport-run John Cooper Works Mini WRC. And in a thrilling 11 special stage battle over the big jumps and twists of Northern Ireland’s closed roads, Wayne Sission survived a high-speed off through a fence to maintain his lead in the series in his AMS Arnside Motorsport Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X.

It was Harper’s first appearance in Northern Ireland since 1995 (when he rolled out of the Ulster Rally), but he was quickly into his stride and setting some consistently fast times as others around him spun into the scenery and left bodywork parts scattered across County Down. Read More »

Jonny Greer and Kirsty Riddick have won the Carryduff Forklift Down Rally, round four of the McGrady Insurance MSA Northern Ireland Stage Rally Championship!

Driving his Citroen DS3 R5, the Carryduff man secured the spoils by 20.1 seconds from Portglenone’s Desi Henry, with current N.I. Championship leader Derek McGarrity in third.

Greer was lying in 10th overall after the short opening test in the Eikon Centre complex but he quickly stamped his authority once the event moved on to the closed roads between Hillsborough and Castlewellan. He moved up to second overall after stage two and then assumed a lead that he was never destined to relinquish after the third test. Read More »

Osian Pryce will contest his first ever asphalt rally in a rear-wheel drive car when he contests the SGC Printing Harry Flatters Rally on Epynt (Sunday 29 July) in an Escort Mk2.

The 25-year old Machynlleth-born driver has recently contested two gravel rallies in an Escort Mk2 – leading the 2WD Rally North Wales before a puncture dropped him to fourth, and setting fastest time on all five stages to win the Red Kite Stages.

Co-driven by Dale Furniss, Osian will once again drive a car supplied by Suffolk-based specialists RallyXtreme, but this time it will be a much lighter, built for asphalt, Escort Mk2 powered by a John Wilcox BDG engine, with a Kugelfischer fuel injection system. The car’s livery is similar to that used by Björn Waldegård and Ari Vatanen. Read More »
