Sil­ver Star Ed­wards could head to his­torics

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

This year’s BTRDA Sil­ver Star cham­pi­onship win­ner Gavin Ed­wards could switch to his­torics next year.

Ed­wards is in his first sea­son of gravel ral­ly­ing, and saw off the likes of reign­ing cham­pion Boyd Ker­shaw on his way to the ti­tle in a Vaux­hall-pow­ered Ford Es­cort Mk2.

“I’m happy with how its gone, its not per­fect and I know I can go quicker than what I have done this year, but we’re happy with the cham­pi­onship,” said Ed­wards.

“This year is a bit of a one-off for me as I can’t re­ally af­ford to do it.

“I’m try­ing to jig up some spon­sors so I can switch to the His­toric cham­pi­onship and I’ve got a cou­ple on board. If I’ve got sup­port to do the events I’ll make the com­mit­ment and buy a his­toric car and use parts off my cur­rent car. That’s my am­bi­tion.”
