Reigning British Rally Championship Cadet Cup champion Rupert Flynn upheld EDSL Sport honours at the opening round of the British Rally Championship and BTRDA Rally series last weekend, the Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally (8th February).

Making his Junior BRC debut, Flynn co-driver Richard Crozier stayed out of trouble to secure a confidence-boosting fifth spot in the series in the EDSL Sport hire car. Sadly neither team-mate Brian Brady or BTRDA contender Elliot Payne would make it to the Llandudno promenade to cross the ramp on Saturday evening. Read More »

Last weekend kick-started the 2020 BTRDA rally championship as over 100 crews headed to Llandudno for the Cambrian Rally.

Progressive rally driver Eddie Lewis proved that he is “not there to make up the numbers” after an impressive performance at the opening round of the Junior British Rally Championship last weekend, the Cambrian Rally (8th February).

Lewis, aged 18 from Newark, led the Junior BRC contingent after the opening stage and set a string of top times, before a puncture and subsequent steering issue forced the youngster down the leader board to just miss out on a podium position on the final stage of the rally, finishing fourth.

On his first British Rally Championship (BRC) appearance in over two and a half years, Osian Pryce finished second overall on the Llandudno-based Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally (Saturday 8 February) – despite it being his first gravel rally in a Hyundai i20 R5 and his first event with new co-driver Noel O’Sullivan.

And the talented 26-year old Machynlleth-born driver said that finishing runner-up to local driver and last year’s event winner Matt Edwards, particularly after such a long lay-off since his last gravel rally in an R5 car, was “as good as a win”. Read More »

Finlay Retson secured the best result of his career at Saturday’s Cambrian Rally (8th February), finishing in second place at the opening round of the Junior British Rally Championship.

The 19-year-old ace from Blairgowrie enjoyed the best possible start to his 2020 campaign, battling through tricky conditions to set two fastest times and even lead the category at one point on his way to a runner up position across the world-famous North Wales stages in his Ford Fiesta R2.

The BRC and BTRDA kicked off their 2020 seasons at the Cambrian and it was local ace Matt Edwards, co-driven by Darren Garrod, who took his Fiesta R5 MkII to another win. It didn’t start out plain sailing though as Edwards was 4th, just over 3 seconds off early leaders Tom Cave & Dale Furniss (i20 R5). Edwards then went fastest on the 2nd stage to climb to 2nd place and this was followed up with another fastest time in Penmachno which would change the face of the rally. Cave dropped three and a half minutes, one of a number of crews to hit issues in the challenging stage. Edwards then continued setting fastest times on all but the final stage to take victory by just under 40s. Read More »

Osian Pryce will return to the British Rally Championship (BRC) for the first time in over two and a half years when he contests this weekend’s Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally (Saturday 8 February).

On his last appearance in the BRC in 2017, the talented 26-year old Machynlleth-born driver led the series at the midway point, before unfortunate mechanical problems during the second half of the season ended his title challenge. His last BRC event was the Ulster Rally in August 2017.

Now Osian will return to the BRC in the same Melvyn Evans Motorsport-run Hyundai i20 R5 in which he won last year’s Get Connected Rali Bae Ceredigion – Wales’ first closed public road stage rally. Read More »
