Ultimately, the Northern Ireland/Isle of Man crew missed a class win by just three seconds. Read More »

Paul Barrett and new co-driver Will Rogers fought back from early delays to scoop maximum points in round four of the FUCHS LUBRICANTS MSA British Historic Rally Championship, the Red Kite Stages (24 June).

As the event took rallying back into the forests of South Wales for the first time in four years, a fabulous battle raged for BHRC points behind rally winner Osian Pryce.

Osian Pryce recorded the fastest time on all five of the Red Kite Rally stages in the Vale of Neath to win the two-wheel drive section of the event in an Escort Mk2 – and in doing so scored his first win in a rear-wheel drive car, to add to victories already achieved in front- and four-wheel drive machinery.

Co-driven by Dale Furniss, Pryce flew through the opening Crynant test to open up an 18 second lead, despite running first on the road in the G&M Pryce/Pirelli-backed car and sweeping the worst of the loose gravel. Read More »

Two reunions for historic stage rally cars will be held next year, during Rally North Wales in March and the Red Kite Stages in June.

The pair of gravel rallies will run to the new Rally 2WD format and the team behind Rally 2WD is working to encourage as many historic crews as possible to support these Historic Reunion events in particular.

Rally North Wales (Saturday 24 March) and the Red Kite Stages (Saturday 23 June) will offer historic crews the best possible stage conditions by running all the two-wheel drive mileage ahead of the four-wheel drive cars and the plan is to build significant historic entries by making these two rallies a celebration of historic rallying on gravel.
