Har­ris aims to get ti­tle bid on track

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Mini Cooper driver Phil Har­ris is aim­ing to get his Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship cam­paign back on track on the Red Dragon Rally on Au­gust 20 af­ter a rare re­tire­ment on the re­cent Harry Flat­ters Rally.

Oil pres­sure con­cerns on the open­ing stage on Epynt prompted the car’s first re­tire­ment in 13 ral­lies since be­ing built by RSR His­toric Engi­neer­ing for Har­ris’s re­turn to ral­ly­ing af­ter a gap of more than 20 years.

“With the next three rounds close to­gether, in­clud­ing the Isle of Man, we thought it was bet­ter not to risk de­stroy­ing the en­gine and then not get­ting out on the next round,” said Har­ris.
