Chris West returns to Jersey in 306
Brands Hatch Stages winner Chris West will return to Jersey for the second consecutive year, with a new engine in his iconic Peugeot 306 Maxi.
West – who has worked with the Vauxhall Junior Rally Team this year and competed on the Ulster with the outfit – will use the car his dad David has leant to him. David has competed on Jersey for many years.
Chris said: “It’s got a brand new engine, a lot more power than it’s ever had, new ECU, traction control, launch control. It’s more like a WRC car now.
“I wouldn’t be doing the event without my dad, he’s backed me more than anybody by giving me the car. I’m very grateful for that.
“Hopefully we’ll get a good result. The plan is to go and win but it’s a long old rally and anything can happen.”
