malcolmwilson16 (2)An action packed rally up in the Lake District saw Charlie Payne & Carl Williamson take back-to-back victories in the BTRDA championship.

They did inevitably spin and a hard fought 13 second lead became a 23 second deficit handing Payne the win. Connor McCloskey & Damien Duffin (Mini WRC) had been fastest through the first stage but getting stuck in a deep water filled hole on stage 2 ended their rally. Wayne Sisson & Neil Shanks (Evo X) took the final podium spot after a consistent drive throughout the event, just over a minute behind Payne. Read More »

Ambitious British rally co-driver Phil Hall scored a solid start to his MSA English Rally Championship campaign last weekend despite spending three minutes in a Cumbrian ditch. Sitting alongside rapid Fiesta R2 pilot Rhys Yates at the Malcolm Wilson Rally, the duo scored a creditable fourth in class B10. Taking in some infamous stages in the Lake District, the Cockermouth based event provided a challenging set of conditions for Hall to begin his challenge on the popular BTRDA run series.

Having sat with Yates previously in 2014, Hall would be assured of a competitive outing in the newly acquired Fiesta and was keen to see well the duo could do against some perhaps more powerful machinery in the class. Read More »
