After months of no motorsport, in the flesh, it was great to be out again albeit for a test session. Ahead of their 2021 JWRC assault, Jon Armstrong & Phil Hall, were doing their familiarisation and set up work ahead of Rally Croatia. Jon was reunited with his old Fiesta R2 he used back in the 2013 season. The narrow and bumpy asphalt of Bont provides a great test venue, added to which the gradient changes give the 2.2 mile circuit everything you could need. There was another crew also at the test as Richard Wells & Calvin Houldsworth were out in their Fiesta R5, looking forward to a season of tarmac rallying. Read More »

Over 120 crews took the startline at the Eikon Centre for the Down Rally, in a small window of good weather which surrounded the event.

Jon Armstrong & Noel O’Sullivan (Mini WRC) had climbed up to 3rd overall after a fastest time on stage 2 but a puncture cost them 50 seconds on stage 4 so the top 3 was shook up. Daniel Harper & Chris Campbell (Mini WRC) were up to 2nd place with Stephen Wright & Liam Moynihan (Fiesta R5) up to 3rd place. Read More »
