CLASS ROUND-UP

Motor Sport News - - Brc: Rsac Scottish Rally -

Af­ter mak­ing his de­but in an R5 car in the BTRDA ear­lier this month, it was back to nor­mal for Matt Ed­wards as Will Rogers re­turned to the co-driver’s seat of their Mit­subishi Lancer E9. De­spite hav­ing no other en­trants in the BRC 2 class, Ed­wards went about the week­end with his usual vim and vigour, elect­ing to for­get about his class lone­li­ness and take on the cus­tom-built R5 cars – bar­ing in mind his Lancer E9 is al­most show­room stan­dard – in­stead.

He did just that, fin­ish­ing sev­enth in the BRC on the event, equalling his sea­son high re­sult in Mid Wales, and topped many sim­i­lar cars in the Scot­tish cham­pi­onship to fin­ish 12th over­all on the rally.

As the only class en­trant for a sec­ond rally in a row, Chris Wheeler and Yan Grif­fiths took max­i­mum BRC 3 points in their Citroen DS 3 R3T.

Tony Simp­son bounced back from a trip into a ditch in Carlisle with a BRC 4 class win in Scotland. The fact that the Liver­pool driver played his joker only made the week­end more fruit­ful for he and co-driver Ian Bevan.

Al­though moun­tain bike cham­pion Gee Ather­ton isn’t reg­is­tered for BRC 4, his co-driver Keaton Wil­liams is. They suf­fered gear­box fail­ure in their Ford Fi­esta R2.

There was an in­ter­est­ing bat­tle in the Na­tional Rally Cup, as sta­ble­mates Jamie Jukes/dave Wil­liams were beaten by fel­low Mit­subishi Mi­rage crew Robert Blomberg/lars An­der­s­son. The al­lSwedish crew came home 35s ahead, giv­ing another crew some sil­ver­ware to take back to Swe­den.

Don­nie Macdon­ald con­tin­ued his adap­ta­tion, a sec­ond event on DMACK tyres. He was third, ahead of Nigel Feeney and Abi Louden who made the most of a pre-event test with David Hig­gins to im­prove con­sis­tently in the new car.
