Another year and another trip to the Heritage Motor Museum for the 2012 HRCR Open Day. Once again the main category winners from 2011 had their cars on display, plus a smattering of others outside the museum. With all the major events for the 2012 season also represented at the show, it gave a valuable insight into some interesting plans for 2012. Read More »

Another year and another Bulldog rally and this time we did get to see the BRC crews but not until we had caught the BHRC crews twice. In the headline event Elfyn Evans took his first major victory, co-driven by Andrew Edwards in his Impreza N15. In the Historic’s Nick Elliott & Chris Brooks (Escort MkII) built up a comfortable lead and kept Julian Reynolds in check through the last few stages. Matt Edwards & Sam Collis (MG ZR) were easy winners in the BRC Challenge with last but by no means least Shaun Gardener & Ben Innes (Evo 5.9) won the National rally by just 2.6 seconds. Read More »

Bigger than before and taking up more space inside the Heritage Motor Centre too, the 2011 HRCR Open Day kicked off the historic rally season and our season at 90right also. With Saab and the RAC rally taking the limelight, the cars on display reflected this celebration. We also got to see some interesting different vehicles too, from an immaculate Peugeot 504 to a Tatra! Read More »

Just as they had done a year earlier, Nick Elliott and Dave Price stamped their authority on the opening round of the 2010 Dunlop/ MSA British Historic Rally Championship, the Bulldog Historic Rally (Saturday 27 March).

While Elliott/Price (Ford Escort Mk2) dominated an incredibly strong category three, other key winners were Jonathan Gale/James Whitaker (Sunbeam Tiger) and Jeremy Easson/Alun Cook (Ford Escort Mk1). For the 80-car field, which was packed with quality, the Bulldog delivered a fabulous rally over some of the finest gravel stages in Britain. Read More »

This year the Bulldog rally was all about the Historics for us. We managed to see half of the stages they competed on and once again it was a battle between the Classic Escort MkII’s of Nick Elliott and Julian Reynolds, (co-driven by Dave Price and Ian Oakey respectively). Elliott set fastest time on the first 4 stages to take over a half a minutes advantage into the final two stages. Reynolds was fastest on both but only managed to carve just under ten seconds off Elliott’s lead. The battle for third looked to be going the way Richard Hill & Patrick Cooper (Escort MkII), that was until the final stage when a massive push from Phil Collins & Derek Brannigan (Ascona) saw them take third place by just over 3 seconds.
