Jason Pritchard won big on the PokerStars Rally, taking maximum Protyre Motorsport UK Asphalt Rally Championship points on both Legs 1 and 2, setting fastest time on every stage and winning the double-header round of the series by 5mins 20.9secs.

Having won the Manx National a record-equalling five times and the IOM Historic Rally twice, his invincible record on the Isle of Man continues as he and Phil Clarke dominated the event from start to finish in their North Road Garage Ford Focus WRC05.

The Isle of Man weather threw everything at competitors, but Jason sailed off into the distance on Friday night to open up a 2mins 51.7secs gap after Leg 1.

Cumbrian rally driver Paul Bird’s much anticipated return to the super-fast asphalt surfaces of the Paul BirdIsle of Man was short lived when a technical problem forced him out of the PokerStars Rally in the early stages last night.

Fresh from his victory on the Eventsigns Woodpecker Stages Rally a couple of months ago, Bird, from Langwathby near Penrith, along with County Durham co-driver Jack Morton were confident after missing a couple of years of competing around the Manx lanes where he’d had so much success in the past.
