An­der­son to Mini Epynt for asphalt run

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Bri­tish cham­pi­onship driver Jamie An­der­son will get an early taste of Epynt ral­ly­ing when he en­ters this week­end’s Welsh Marches Mini Epynt, the only BRC reg­u­lar to do so.

The BRC takes in Epynt on the Sun­day of the Nicky Grist Stages on July 10.

An­der­son has never com­peted on the asphalt roads of the Epynt mil­i­tary ranges so is hop­ing to gain some ex­pe­ri­ence of the unique chal­lenge that they of­fer. He will com­pete in his reg­u­lar Ford Fi­esta R5.

“The think­ing be­hind it re­ally is just a bit of prac­tice for Epynt be­cause I’ve not been up there be­fore,” said An­der­son. “We’ve got the Nicky Grist com­ing up in a few weeks, which uses Epynt, so re­ally it’s just to try and get a bit of prac­tice be­fore then.”

An­der­son cur­rently sits eighth in the Bri­tish cham­pi­onship, de­spite hav­ing lim­ited ex­pe­ri­ence of the BRC events.

“Epynt is sim­i­lar to some of the stages used on the Cir­cuit of Ire­land and we hadn’t done any­thing there ei­ther,” he said.
