Robin­son en­cour­aged by Fiat’s pace on a de­mand­ing Carlisle Stages

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Matthew Robin­son says that fin­ish­ing top BTRDA his­toric on the Carlisle Stages is an­other step for­ward for the Fiat 131 project from Rally Sport De­vel­op­ments.

Robin­son was a late en­try for Carlisle af­ter slid­ing off the road on the sec­ond stage of the pre­vi­ous week­end’s Sev­ern Val­ley Stages. “The car is lot bet­ter but will still need a bit more,” said Robin­son. “If we get two or three more events un­der our belt we should be re­ally ready to at­tack them.”

The tar­get for the Fiat project is to get the car onto com­pet­i­tive terms with lead­ing BHRC Ford Es­cort Mk2 driv­ers like Ja­son Pritchard and Nick El­liott.
