Jones aims to keep out of the hedges on Isle of Man Ferrari outing
Kevin Jones will take his Ferrari 308 Michelotto to the Rally Isle of Man in September.
Jones’ Group 4 car is leading the HRCR Old Stagers Championship after back-to-back wins on the Dixies Historic Challenge and Red Dragon I.T. Stages.
“We’re taking it over there and we’ll see if we can stay away from the hedges,” said Jones, who has worked on seven of the original 11 Michelotto cars. “We’ve never been there before. I’ve watched a few videos and it scared the life out of me, it appealed to me then.”
The car has been suffering from a misfire but the Welshman believes he’ll have the car purring for the Carfax stages, the next HRCR round. Jones is planning to improve the engine for 2017, with the car short of the works cars which produced around 320bhp.
