Squires prepares for New Zealand
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.
