Test­ing woe puts Ker­shaw out

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Reign­ing BTRDA Sil­ver Star cham­pion Boyd Ker­shaw and co-driver Bryan Hull missed the sea­son-open­ing Cam­brian Rally af­ter a gear­box broke in pre-event test­ing.

Ker­shaw was test­ing the Es­cort he used to win the ti­tle last year at Wal­ters Arena, but the fail­ure left him un­able to get the parts and re­build the car in time.

The New Zealan­der has pur­chased an­other Es­cort for this year’s BTRDA, but that also couldn’t be read­ied for the Cam­brian.

Hull said: “We were wait­ing parts for the new car, which has a Vaux­hall en­gine rather than a Ford, in­clud­ing sus­pen­sion bits,” said Hull. “The plan is to get both cars ready for the Mal­colm Wil­son Rally.”

No Cam­brian for Boyd
