Gid­dings emerges as C2 ti­tle hope­ful

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

After win­ning ev­ery round he’s en­tered this year, James Gid­dings is tar­get­ing the Gwynne speed Rally Cham­pi­onship with his dou­ble points joker still to play.

Gid­dings cur­rently sits fourth, 15 points be­hind Ryan Gib­son. With his joker a win could be boosted from 20 to 40 points.

“It’s our third round and our third win, it’s go­ing pretty well,” said Gid­dings, who is co-driven by Dan John­son. “It’s caught me by sur­prise a bit, it’s only our sec­ond year com­pet­ing. I’ve done a few Au­tostests be­fore that, but noth­ing ma­jor.”

Gid­dings won the last round – the Brawdy Stages – de­spite poor vis­i­bil­ity due to fog. They took the win by two sec­onds after Char­lie Robin­son and Sam Davies hit a truck tyre.

The planned next round – the FODMC Time Trial – has been can­celled due to a lack of fund­ing, mean­ing the se­ries re­sumes on the Gareth Hall Me­mo­rial Stages on Au­gust 27.
