The Fifth anniversary of the Junior 1000 Ecosse Challenge attending the Glyn Memorial Junior Rally on Anglesey on 25/26th November was celebrated in style when top podium position overall was taken by a Scottish crew after 2 days of tough rallying. A total of 9 crews headed South on Friday 24th to “acclimatise” for the 2 day event which included 4 stages out of 8 in the dark on day 1 followed by a further 8 on day 2. Some had to fight their way through some of the first snow to hit Southern Scotland and everybody got a good “drooking” on the M6. But it was a happy eager bunch who gathered around the Saltire fluttering on the Championship motor home on Saturday morning. On Saturday the “senior” rallyists took to the stages first, starting at 11.30am and the Juniors followed on at 12.45. Read More »

A second visit to the sunny Ty Croes circuit saw a near capacity field tackle 10 stages, in perfect track conditions. Kevin Procter & Lesley Wray (Fiesta S2000 Turbo) were seeded at number 1 but a mistake and costly stall saw them drop behind two cars, on the opening stage. Further issues with the car and incidents on the stage saw them fall out of contention. It was the Escort MkII of Dave Willett & John Davies who took up the mantle of first on the road and they were superb all day but surrounded by 4WD machinery it was John Cope & Clive Molyneux (Impreza WRC) who took victory by 10 seconds. Completing the podium were Adrian Spencer & Mark Hewitt (Impreza WRC) just 11 seconds behind Willett and 21 seconds off Cope’s victory pace. Read More »

Asphalt rally driver Steve Brown had a shorter than usual event last weekend, after his Honda Civic was side-lined by transmission gremlins at the SMC Stages in Anglesey.

The Rochdale driver had swapped his usual Nissan Micra Kit Car for a loaned Honda and would contest the North Wales based event to acquire seat time in the new machine before crossing the channel to begin his assault on the Belgium based Flanders International Rally Challenge (FIRC).

But drama struck on the opening test of the day when the Honda developed a transmission issue and despite attempts to cure the problem during the morning, Brown was forced out of the race circuit based event. Read More »

glyn-memorial16aThe Glyn Memorial Junior Rally on Anglesey has become the traditional closer for the Brick & Steel Junior 1000 Ecosse Challenge. This is the “International” element – we not only compete in a different country but on a separate island!! In past years the rally has taken place during the last weekend in October but moved a month to last weekend in November to accommodate Wales Rally GB!! In 2016, 10 registered crews from the Junior 1000 Ecosse Challenge made the trip down to join 16 crews from the Kick Energy Junior 1000 Championship for 2 days of rallying and 25% of the stages in the dark. The furthest travelled Scottish crew was from Inverness – 480 miles each way. Read More »
