Motor Sport News - - Historics -

North­ern Ir­ish driver Paul Bar­rett will re­turn to Eng­land and Wales this sea­son for a full as­sault on the Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship in his Pinto-en­gined Ford Es­cort Mk2.

Bar­rett was one of the stars of the early rounds of the 2015 BHRC be­fore a size­able ac­ci­dent in Ire­land cur­tailed his sea­son.

“We had a big off into a tree and the car is only just fixed now,” said Bar­rett. “I’m look­ing for­ward to get­ting out and do­ing the cham­pi­onship again.”

He will start his sea­son on the Red Kite later this month. He missed the event a year ago af­ter be­ing stranded on a car ferry for 36 hours in bad weather.
