The 2019 BTRDA Rally Championship came to an exciting climax last weekend, as Scott Faulkner and Gareth Parry went head to head against rivals Pay Naylor and Ian Lawrence in a winner takes all battle on the Trackrod Rally.

“This event isn’t familiar for me” explained Faulkner getting the excuses in early. “I’ve only competed here once back in 2014 and that was in a Diesel Land Rover Defender! The speeds are going to be dramatically different today, but we’ve got the bit between our teeth and we’re ready for a battle!” Read More »

The Trackrod was once again the final round of the BTRDA and BHRC championships. With the BTRDA decided, for the main titles, all eyes were on the BHRC as 5 drivers could take the title. Matt Edwards & Hamish Campbell (131 Abarth) were fastest through the opening Friday night test but Matthew Robinson & Sam Collis (Escort MkII) hit back on Saturday and the pair swapped fastest stage times leaving Robinson just under 4 seconds ahead going in to the final stage. A spin and stall in front of our position didn’t help and the best part of 17 seconds were dropped, leaving Robinson victorious by just over 21s. Steve Bannister & Callum Atkinson (Escort MkII) completed the podium but all eyes were behind them as none of the top 3 were either registered or in with a shot of the title. Read More »

The seafront at Filey will be a tense place on Saturday afternoon (28 September). That’s the setting for the final reckoning for this year’s FUCHS LUBRICANTS Motorsport UK British Historic Rally Championship.
