Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Ju­nior Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship driver Blair Brown was awarded the SORT Oil Spirit of the Rally award after a self­less act on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

Brown stopped to help a spec­ta­tor who had trapped his car on a rock.

“We were queu­ing for re­fuel after ser­vice,” said Brown. “I was check­ing the tyre pres­sures and I heard a bang. At first I thought some­one had crashed into our car. A guy went up the side of the road on the grass and beached on a rock. I lifted it [the car] up to get it off the rock.”

Brown also man­aged to help his team of just three me­chan­ics switch his car from gravel to as­phalt on Sat­ur­day evening in the short two and a half hour pe­riod be­fore parc ferme.

Brown had only three helpers to change his car to as­phalt
