Giddings emerges as C2 title hopeful
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.
