Greer heads to BTRDA Carlisle for seat time

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

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.
