Davies tar­gets BTRDA ST Trophy points lead

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Cameron Davies needs to win his home round of the ST Trophy and hope that rival Sam Bil­ham is at least two places be­hind in or­der for him to move into the cham­pi­onship lead with two ral­lies re­main­ing.

Af­ter missing the sea­son open­ing Cam­brian Rally, Welsh­man Davies has won all four events he’s en­tered this year. How­ever, Bil­ham’s con­sis­tency means he tops the stand­ings by three points head­ing to this week­end’s Nicky Grist Stages.

“Hope­fully if all goes to plan we can take the lead,” said Davies, who aims to step up to the DMACK Ju­nior Bri­tish cham­pi­onship in 2017. “You don’t get re­warded much for wins, but that’s how the points work.”

Ge­orge Le­p­ley re­turns to the ST Trophy this week­end af­ter missing the pre­vi­ous round due to school ex­ams. The 17-year-old has been the clos­est chal­lenger to Davies on the events they have both con­tested.
