Squires pre­pares for New Zealand

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Phil Squires will re­turn to New Zealand in Novem­ber to tackle the Sil­ver Fern Rally for the sec­ond time.

Squires, best known as a lead­ing sup­plier of com­pe­ti­tion parts for Ford Es­corts, con­tested the pre­vi­ous edi­tion of the week-long rally in 2014 as a 50th birth­day present to him­self.

He says it was such an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that he could not re­sist re­turn­ing. “My old Es­cort has al­ready gone onto the boat,” said Squires, one of 10 UK en­tries for the Novem­ber 27-De­cem­ber 4 event with co-driver Nigel Hutchin­son.

“Last week’s Track­rod was just what I needed as a warm-up for the Sil­ver Fern,” said Squires, who fin­ished seventh in 2014.
