Greer heads to BTRDA Carlisle for seat time
Jonny Greer will compete on the DMACK Carlisle Stages in an attempt to get more seat time ahead of the next round of the British Rally Championship.
Greer has been one of the most consistent drivers in the BRC over the first three rounds, finishing eighth, second and sixth in Mid Wales, the Circuit of Ireland and the Pirelli Rally respectively.
“We’ve got the Scottish coming up,” explained Greer. “Over the last few years we’ve done a lot more Tarmac than gravel. We struggled on the Pirelli a little bit so it’s all about seat time for us.”
Welsh champion Luke Francis (Mitsubishi Lancer) is the top seed for the BTRDA round on Saturday followed by Ford Fiesta driver Charlie Payne. The event is based at H&H Auctions off Junction 43 of the M6 and uses stages in Kielder Forest West. ● BRC driver Euan Thorburn is also a late entry for the Carlisle Stages. The Scot will pilot his regular Peugeot 208 T16 R5 and is the third seed for the rally.
