Mole joins Field for the re­main­der of 2016

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Co-driver Claire Mole will re­turn to the Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship on this month’s Ul­ster Rally.

Mole has part­nered the likes of Gwyn­daf Evans, Rob­bie Head, Euan Thor­burn, Steve Perez and Louise AitkenWalker in the past.

“The last time I was in the BRC was with Neil Simp­son in the Skoda [Fabia] S2000 in 2014,” said Mole, who will co-drive Fred Field in his Opel Adam Cup car on the event.

“I’ve not been in an Adam be­fore and I’ve not met Fred yet ei­ther, if he’s like his dad he’ll be to­tally laid back.”

Fred is the son of Dar­rian driver Ash­ley, who won mul­ti­ple rounds of the Mo­tor­sport News Cir­cuit Rally Cham­pi­onship in his new­for-2016 T90 GTR+ this year.

Both Ash­ley and Fred have reg­is­tered for the BRC in the Na­tional Rally Cup class for non-fia ho­molo­gated cars. Both warmed-up for the event on the ALMC Stages in July, with for­mer 205 Chal­lenge driver Ash­ley fin­ish­ing 10th, but Fred re­tired with a failed gear­box mount­ing.
