Bo­gie re­turn­ing to Wales Rally GB with new car

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

David Bo­gie will at­tempt Wales Rally GB for a third con­sec­u­tive year, the first in his Skoda Fabia R5.

The Scot re­tired last year af­ter burst­ing an oil cooler. This year will be his first with CA1 Sport and his Skoda Fabia R5.

“We plan to do GB be­fore com­ing back for more BRC next year,” said the Scot. “The last two years have been un­kind to us. I’m up to speed with the car and I’ve built up some good per­for­mance. Last year we burst the oil cooler and the year be­fore the jack failed dur­ing a wheel change.

“I think I’m on a dif­fer­ent level com­pared to last year. As we’ve dis­cussed be­fore the re­sults haven’t shown that, but the per­for­mance has been there, I do feel that. I know the car well and every­thing with hav­ing a big team like CA1 Sport be­hind us has helped us step up too. There’s no rea­son why we can’t go out and win the BRC next year.”

Last year Bo­gie didn’t pay for pri­or­ity seed­ing and fea­tured well be­hind the WRC2 run­ners on the road. With the ex­pe­ri­ence he’s built up this year, he feels that’s time to change.

“For GB, we’ll do the pri­or­ity seed­ing this year. Last year we caught the same car in two dif­fer­ent stages. The or­gan­is­ers wouldn’t let us move so we caught him half­way through a stage at one point.”
