Evett back in BTRDA with powerful MG
Joe Evett will bring out his 1400S-spec MG ZR for the first time this year on next month’s Trackrod Rally after it broke on last year’s Tempest Rally.
Evett competed on the DMACK Carlisle Stages early this year, finishing second 1400 on the event in his 1400C MG ZR, despite having less power than the 1400S cars. He managed 37th overall.
“I’m in my 1400S as it’s been rebuilt,” said Evett. “I haven’t driven it since the Tempest last year when the gearbox broke after two stages. The plan is to go and have a laugh and enjoy it.”
The only reason Evett may miss the event is due to a hand injury. He said: “Hopefully it will be OK in time, I broke two fingers and injured two tendons in my hand in an accident on a JCB. Hopefully it will heal up in time.”
Evett will face strong competition from Jordan Hone, who has sealed the 1400S championship with a round to spare and has his Proton for sale.
