Green­smith to com­pete on BRC Carlisle

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Gus Green­smith will re­turn to the Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship on the third round of the cham­pi­onship in Carlisle.

The 19-year-old won the open­ing round of the DMACK Ju­nior Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship on the Mid Wales Stages, and has al­ready been con­firmed in the WRC Drive DMACK Tro­phy for this year hav­ing been the top rookie last year.

“It’s about time in the car on ac­tual stages on a real rally,” Green­smith ex­plained about head­ing to Carlisle. “When you go test­ing you’re just re­laxed and laid back, when you’re on a rally there’s com­pe­ti­tion and I can pace my­self, judge the per­for­mance and just con­tinue to learn.”

Green­smith has been pre­par­ing for a strong sea­son in the DDT with test­ing, in­clud­ing mul­ti­ple days with David Hig­gins at his rally school. The reign­ing Ju­nior Bri­tish Rally cham­pion com­pleted over 280 miles of test­ing over two venues in the last month.
