trackrod13 (12)Welsh eyes were smiling as Osian Pryce & Dale Furniss (DS3 R3T) took back to back wins after their maiden BRC win on the Ulster Rally in August. This one was a different affair as they were in a fierce battle all event long and only beat Jukka Korhonen & Marko Salminen (DS3 R3T) by just under 10 seconds. Korhonen was by no means secure in 2nd as Alastair Fisher & Gordon Noble (DS3 R3T) were only 3 seconds back after some stunning stage times early on the Saturday. In the Rally Two category Daniel McKenna & Arthur Kierans (Fiesta) took victory by just under two seconds. Jon Armstrong & Karl Atkinson (Fiesta) just edged out Steve Rokland & James Aldridge (Fiesta) by just 0.1s on the final stage. In the R1 category Ban & Jason Mckay (Twingo) took the honours as the only finishers. Read More »

SONY DSCWith a bumper field and a largely pleasant weather forecast the lanes of the Scottish Borders were set to be buzzing to the sound of rally cars. In the BRC the event was once again dominated by the Citroen DS3 R3T’s. On his less favoured surface Jukka Korhonen & Marko Salminen took an overnight lead with 5 fastest stage times from 6 stages. 2nd were Alastair Fisher & Gordon Noble with Tom Cave & Ieuan Thomas just 3rd. On the opening stage of Saturday Korhonen almost blew all of his lead with an early spin on Swinton. With the lead now slashed and Cave charging hard from 3rd place followed by Osian Pryce & Dale Furniss from an overnight 4th place, the rally became a 4 way battle. Cave set a string of fastest stage times with Pryce fastest on all the others bar one for Korhonen. With just one stage to go Korhonen’s lead was just 0.1 s over Cave, whilst Pryce was a comfortable 3rd having passed Fisher. Korhonen had the bit between his teeth and held back the Welsh charge to set fastest stage time and win by 2 seconds from Cave. Read More »

pirelli13 (90)A subtle change in format along with a new event co-sponsor, in the shape of the Richard Burns Foundation, saw the BRC finally get its season up and running. In the BRC Jukka Korhonen & Marko Salminen (DS3 R3T) took the lead over the slightly longer first day and held on through the second day. Thankfully for them they had enough of a cushion whilst Alastair Fisher & Gordon Noble (DS3 R3T) came from third overnight to pass Tom Cave & Ieuan Thomas (DS3 R3T) for the 2nd spot. In the BRC classes Steve Rokland & Jame Aldridge (Fiesta R2) dominated the R2 category whilst Harry Threlfall & Andy Bull (Twingo) were the only finishers in R1. Read More »
