Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Marty Gal­lagher will re­turn to the Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship for the Nicky Grist Stages – but with a change of car.

Gal­lagher, who is in a four-way tie for the BRC 4 cham­pi­onship lead, has pur­chased Rob Duggan’s Peu­geot 208 R2. Gal­lagher will con­tinue in the Ir­ish Tar­mac Cham­pi­onship be­fore head­ing to Builth Wells in Wales for the Nicky Grist.

“We will be push­ing hard in Done­gal [next ITRC round] and ex­pect to be com­pet­i­tive in it,” said Gal­lagher. “But the big push is go­ing to come on the next round of the Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship, the Nicky Grist Stages. I am looking to do more gravel events to build up my ex­pe­ri­ence and the 208 seems to have that lit­tle edge over the other cars in the woods.” Gal­lagher will be the first reg­is­tered BRC com­peti­tor to field a Peu­geot 208 R2, mean­ing the cham­pi­onship will have had all the ma­jor R2 man­u­fac­tur­ers com­pet­ing.
