Heartbreak for Weston as sponsors pull out and end full BRC season hopes
Ryan Weston Jr will no longer complete a full Junior British Rally Championship after losing two major sponsors.
The 19-year-old had been set to partner Meirion Evans in a Ford Fiesta R2T prepared by Melvyn Evans. With the loss of backing, Ryan’s father Dave Sr admits that the focus has switched away from an assault on the championship this year.
“We’ve lost two major backers we’ve had for years,” explained Dave Sr. “Because of the way the economic climate is up here we’re not likely to replace them.”
“We’re working away trying to do something and we may do some of the rounds, but we’ve got to be realistic.”
Ryan Weston competed in the BTRDA last year, finishing fourth in the Kickstart 1400 championship in his Proton Satria.
