Roland Llewellin scores an Evo for his BRC2 bid

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

BTRDA reg­u­lar Roland Llewellin will step up to the Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship in 2016 in a Mit­subishi Lancer E10.

Llewellin com­peted in the N4 cat­e­gory in a Group N Lancer E9, but has de­cided that now is the time to step up to the Bri­tish cham­pi­onship. The car will be pre­pared by SW Mo­tor­sport.

“I’ve al­ways wanted to do the BRC and this year with it go­ing back to four-wheel drive we thought it would be a real chal­lenge to have a go at it,” said Llewellin.

“I like the idea of mak­ing your own pa­cenotes and do­ing the recce. This is a real plus over or­gan­is­ers’ notes, es­pe­cially if you don’t have ex­pe­ri­ence of the stages be­ing used.”

Llewellin will com­pete on the Cam­brian in Fe­bru­ary, along with se­lected BTRDA rounds with ex­pe­ri­enced nav­i­ga­tor and Manx­man Mark Per­ry­man.

Llewellin added: “We are do­ing the Cam­brian and will prob­a­bly do one or two other BTRDA rounds. Last year the com­pe­ti­tion was in­tense in Group N. Hope­fully it will be the same in the BRC!”
