Osian Pryce has made the perfect start to his British Rally Championship campaign by winning the opening round of the 2022 series, the Corbeau Seats Rally Tendring & Clacton (23/24 April), in his Demon Tweeks-backed Volkswagen Polo GTI R5.

And what’s even more encouraging is that his strongest rallies – events where he has more experience and that contain the type of stages that better suit his driving style – are still to follow.

Co-driven by Noel O’Sullivan, Osian made a solid start on Saturday night’s two short stages along the Clacton-on-Sea promenade, reaching the overnight halt in fourth place, just two seconds off the lead. Read More »

Matt Edwards has won the British Rally Championship drivers’ title for a record-breaking third time in a row after taking his Yuasa Rally Team Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 to a sensational victory on the Modern Tyres Ulster Rally (Saturday 20 November).

Whilst Matt writes his name into the BRC record books, Darren Garrod wins the co-drivers title for a second time, having also guided Matt to his first title in 2018.

The Ulster Rally saw an incredible fight between Matt and his Melvyn Evans Motorsport stablemate and BRC title rival Osian Pryce. Read More »

Osian Pryce is just one step away from becoming British Rally Champion for the first time as he leads the drivers’ standings heading into the final round of the series, the Modern Tyres Ulster Rally (Saturday 20 November). Read More »

It’s the most straightforward final round scenario that Matt Edwards has ever faced as he aims for nothing less than maximum British Rally Championship points on the upcoming Modern Tyres Ulster Rally (Saturday 20 November) to secure a record-breaking third straight drivers’ title.

The Yuasa Rally Team Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 pilot has already won two rounds this year, the Nicky Grist Stages and Trackrod Rally Yorkshire, but with two scores from seven rounds to drop, only another maximum points haul will add another BRC drivers’ title to the ones he won in 2018 and 2019.

And if he achieved it, the result would give Darren Garrod the co-drivers’ title for a second time, after he won the trophy navigating for Matt in 2018. Read More »
