Blairgowrie rally driver Finlay Retson stood on the Junior British Rally Championship podium for the second time this season after taking second place at the gruelling Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally [8-10 October].

The 21-year-old overcame challenging brake issues and coped with inclement weather on the island, to score important points in his race for the coveted Junior BRC title. Retson and co-driver Rhys Stoneman threaded their Ford Fiesta Rally4 across the demanding roads to great effect, finishing a staggering tenth overall on the rally, beating many local experts in more powerful machinery in the process.

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 »

Matt Edwards produced one of the most extraordinary comebacks in the history of the British Rally Championship when he fought back from 143rd overall and last of the BRC competitors to finish fifth overall and score second place BRC points on the Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally (8-10 October) in his Yuasa Rally Team Volkswagen Polo GTI R5.

Fraser Anderson is aiming to get his British Rally Championship Academy Trophy title challenge back on track when he contests the longest and toughest event of his motorsport career when he tackles the Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally for the first time in his Baxter and Gillespie-backed Ford Fiesta R2T.

The event will also be the 18-year old Helensburgh driver’s first closed road asphalt rally.

He and co-driver Jack Bowen have been super-fast this year and won the BRC Academy section on the Nicky Grist Stages and led the category by a country mile on both the following Grampian and Trackrod rallies.

However, the ME Rallysport team driver has been incredibly unlucky on the last two rounds of the BRC with retirement in both the Scottish and North Yorkshire forests ending a comfortable 26 and 48.7 second Academy lead respectively. 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 »

Matt Edwards says that it would be “something really special” to go to the Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally (8-10 October) and do well at his first attempt – although his priority will be his target of winning a third straight British Rally Championship title as he heads to the longest and most demanding round of the series in his Yuasa Rally Team Volkswagen Polo GTI R5.

Co-driven by Darren Garrod, Matt arrives in the form of his career, having dominated the recent Trackrod Rally Yorkshire by leading the event from start to finish and winning by a comfortable 32.8 seconds. Read More »
