Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS - MO­TOR SPORT

MAC­CLES­FIELD rally duo Si­mon Tuck­man and Shaun Hughes’ fly­ing fin­ish saw them take best in class in last week­end’s Cam­brian rally.

The pair, driv­ing a MkII Ford Es­cort on the North Wales track, had to ne­go­ti­ate the forests around Betws y Coed and se­cured 26th over­all in a 150-strong field in the event, which will be screened on Mo­tors TV in the near fu­ture.

They last com­peted in this event seven years ago and Si­mon, 48, and Shaun, 25, use an Es­cort pow­ered by a nor­mally as­pi­rated two-litre Cos­worth en­gine, de­vel­op­ing around 270 bhp and 196 torque.
