Bird Manx15aLangwathby rally driver Paul Bird looked set to claim a fourth victory on the IMGold Manx National Rally this weekend after leading from the start but for a second year in succession, his hopes were dashed just three stages from home.

Driving the Mac Tools, Hager, Frank Bird Poultry-backed, Pirelli-shod and Dom Buckley Motorsport-prepared Ford Focus WRC07, Bird along with Welsh co driver Aled Davies was on course to follow up his victories in 2009, 2010 and 2013 and in doing so, avenge the big crash he suffered when well in command last year.

manxnat15 (6)The largest entry in a decade saw challenging conditions for the crews on the Isle of Man. Paul Bird & Aled Davies (Focus WRC) struck early and held a comfortable lead after the first four stages before Melvyn Evans & Mark Glennerster (Impreza WRC) struck back on stage 5 to cut the gap back to 20 seconds. It was short lived however as Evans was unable to start stage 6 due to electrical issues so Bird took an overnight lead of just under a minute ahead of Jason Pritchard & Phil Clarke (Focus WRC). After level pegging roughly on Saturday’s opening pair of stages, Bird started to extend his lead and he had almost a minute and three quarters going in to stage 11. That stage would see the demise of Bird though as he punctured early on and by the time the wheel was changed the lead had long since gone and he retired from the rally. This left Pritchard to back up his 2014 win with another excellent result in 2015. Read More »
