Duns rally driver Garry Pearson led a Motorsport UK British Rally Championship round for the first time in his career last weekend, topping the timesheets after the opening leg of the final round of the series, the Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally [28-29 October].

The Skoda Fabia R5 driver set the fastest overall time over the gruelling closed-road asphalt “Nebo” test on the Friday night, beating World Rally Championship ace Oliver Solberg in the process. He and co-driver Dale Furniss would go on to challenge for the lead of the BRC the following day, before an unfortunate impact with a rock ended their season with a zero score. Read More »


Blairgowrie rally driver Finlay Retson saw his chances of taking the coveted Junior British Rally Championship title slip away last weekend, after retiring from the penultimate round of the 2021 season, the Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally [30 October].

Just three weeks after standing on the Junior BRC podium for a second time this season after taking an impressive second place at the gruelling Mull Rally, Retson and co-driver Rhys Stoneman were aiming to repeat their success in the north Wales forests to maintain their chances of fighting for the coveted title.

Osian Pryce won the Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally for the first time in his Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 to maintain his lead in the British Rally Championship with just one round remaining.

The result also continues his incredible record of finishing on the BRC podium in every round so far this year, with his success tally now standing at two maximum points scores (including his bonus Joker win on the Mull Rally), second on the Grampian Rally and Trackrod Rally Yorkshire and third on both the Neil Howard and Nicky Grist Stages.

Matt Edwards has strengthened his challenge for the 2021 British Rally Championship drivers’ title after making a miraculous emergency repair to his Yuasa Rally Team Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 and turning a potentially title ending situation into a crucial points-scoring finish on his home Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally.

Heavy rain had made the North Wales forests extremely wet and slippery, but despite a relatively good run through the opening Gwydir stage Matt found himself in second place, 10.4 seconds behind his Melvyn Evans Motorsport stablemate and title rival Osian Pryce. Read More »

It was crunch time in both the BRC and BTRDA championships and the Cambrian could prove decisive. Osian Pryce & Noel O’Sullivan (Polo R5) were out of the blocks fast, taking the battle to local crew Matt Edwards & Darren Garrod (Polo R5). It proved to be a good tactic as on stage 4 Edwards went off and recovered with a damaged car that he woiuld have to limp through to the finish. Pryce took maximum points and the victory by over a minute. Garry Pearson & Niall Burns (Fabia R5) were 2nd, taking the National section of the rally, with Callum Black & Jack Morton (Fiesta R5) completing the podium. Read More »

Matt Edwards might start as the favourite to win his home round of the British Rally Championship for the third year in a row, but outscoring his title rivals will take priority as he contests the event for the first time in his Yuasa Rally Team Volkswagen Polo GTI R5. Read More »

Osian Pryce heads to the Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally (Saturday 30 October) in his Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 with a healthy 16 point lead in the British Rally Championship and could clinch the drivers’ title on the penultimate round if everything falls in his favour.

To become champion in North Wales, Osian would need to score maximum points and for his main title rival Matt Edwards to both Joker and non-score on the Cambrian.

Having done the North Wales Car Club organised event four times, and the gravel stages several times more on Wales Rally GB, Osian knows the forest roads well and has a good record on the Cambrian. Read More »
