Motor Sport News - - Rally Report -

James Gid­dings won the Gwynnespeed Chal­lenge at Down Amp­ney, but was pushed hard by two new­com­ers.

Char­lie Robin­son went fastest on stages two to five, but a stage max­i­mum on the sixth thanks to a bro­ken gear link­age put them out.

Gwynnespeed me­chanic and for­mer-m-sport man Mat Wheeler went fastest on the first test in his first com­pet­i­tive run in the se­ries and new car, but Gid­dings and Dan John­son pushed hard in the af­ter­noon to go fastest on the five re­main­ing tests of the day af­ter ser­vice. Ryan Gib­son and Craig Simkiss rounded out the podium be­hind Wheeler and co-driver Han­nah Mckil­lop.
