Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Two-time MN Road Rally cham­pion John Millington took the start on Satur­day night’s PK Me­mo­rial Rally.

This was his first ap­pear­ance on a road event since the JJ Brown Me­mo­rial Rally in 1985, a Mo­tor­sport News Road Rally Cham­pi­onship event. Nav­i­gat­ing for Guy Wood­cock, he was de­nied a fin­ish af­ter their car failed the dam­age check at the end of the rally. The for­mer M-sport WRC co-or­di­na­tor won the MN se­ries in 1981 and 1985, nav­i­gat­ing for Ron Beecroft.

“It’s the first road rally I’ve done in 31 years,” said Millington. “The for­mat and the way it was run took me by sur­prise, it was very good, very com­pet­i­tive. As good as it was in the Mo­tor­ing News days if you like. It was fan­tas­tic; I’d love to do another pre-plot event, ab­so­lutely.”
