Osian Pryce has made the perfect start to his British Rally Championship campaign by winning the opening round of the 2022 series, the Corbeau Seats Rally Tendring & Clacton (23/24 April), in his Demon Tweeks-backed Volkswagen Polo GTI R5.

And what’s even more encouraging is that his strongest rallies – events where he has more experience and that contain the type of stages that better suit his driving style – are still to follow.

Co-driven by Noel O’Sullivan, Osian made a solid start on Saturday night’s two short stages along the Clacton-on-Sea promenade, reaching the overnight halt in fourth place, just two seconds off the lead. Read More »

Osian Pryce will bounce straight back from finishing runner-up in the British Rally Championship by aiming for victory on the Roger Albert Clark Rally.

This year’s five-day and 351 stage mile event will be the longest special stage rally in Great Britain for 30 years (since the 1991 Lombard RAC Rally in fact) and Osian will contest the event for the first time in a RallyXtreme Ford Escort Mk2.

He gave the car a shakedown run on the recent Rallynuts Stages and finished ninth overall and won the historic class by 38 seconds. Read More »

Osian Pryce won the Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally for the first time in his Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 to maintain his lead in the British Rally Championship with just one round remaining.

The result also continues his incredible record of finishing on the BRC podium in every round so far this year, with his success tally now standing at two maximum points scores (including his bonus Joker win on the Mull Rally), second on the Grampian Rally and Trackrod Rally Yorkshire and third on both the Neil Howard and Nicky Grist Stages.

It was crunch time in both the BRC and BTRDA championships and the Cambrian could prove decisive. Osian Pryce & Noel O’Sullivan (Polo R5) were out of the blocks fast, taking the battle to local crew Matt Edwards & Darren Garrod (Polo R5). It proved to be a good tactic as on stage 4 Edwards went off and recovered with a damaged car that he woiuld have to limp through to the finish. Pryce took maximum points and the victory by over a minute. Garry Pearson & Niall Burns (Fabia R5) were 2nd, taking the National section of the rally, with Callum Black & Jack Morton (Fiesta R5) completing the podium. Read More »

Osian Pryce heads to the Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally (Saturday 30 October) in his Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 with a healthy 16 point lead in the British Rally Championship and could clinch the drivers’ title on the penultimate round if everything falls in his favour.

To become champion in North Wales, Osian would need to score maximum points and for his main title rival Matt Edwards to both Joker and non-score on the Cambrian.

Having done the North Wales Car Club organised event four times, and the gravel stages several times more on Wales Rally GB, Osian knows the forest roads well and has a good record on the Cambrian. Read More »

Osian Pryce has extended his lead in the British Rally Championship to 16 points after a perfect maximum Joker bonus points score on the Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally in his Melvyn Evans Motorsport-run Volkswagen Polo GTI R5.

The gamble to play his BRC Joker on an event that he’d never contested before, and on the longest and most demanding round of the series, paid off as he won his first BRC round since the Rally Isle of Man in 2014. Read More »

Osian Pryce heads to the bewitching night time challenge of the mythical Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally (8-10 October) in the lead of the British Rally Championship – and despite never having contested the event before he hopes to turn on the points-scoring magic once again in his Volkswagen Polo GTI R5.

Osian is the only driver to have finished on the podium in all four rounds of this year’s BRC and he knows that with scores to drop come the end of the seven round series that a first maximum BRC points score of the season on the Isle of Mull will be extremely well timed. Read More »
