Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Stig Blomqvist, the 1984 World Rally cham­pion, re­turned to the Mini Fes­ti­val at Brands for the first time since 2014 last week­end.

Blomqvist shared a Mor­ris Cooper S with Hans-ake Soderqvist and Daniel Frodin in both the SU Euro Chal­lenge and Sanwa En­durance events. His best fin­ish was sixth in the first SU Euro Chal­lenge.

“I just came from the Mid­night Sun Rally in Swe­den, where I drove a Ford Fal­con, so the Minis are a dif­fer­ent chal­lenge for me,” said Blomqvist. “The com­pe­ti­tion here is amaz­ing, all the guys are re­ally quick.”
