Evett back in BTRDA with pow­er­ful MG

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

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.
