Chris West re­turns to Jersey in 306

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

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.”
