Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Ar­ron Newby will com­pete in the Mo­tor­sport News Cir­cuit Rally Cham­pi­onship at Cad­well Park in the new TEG Sport Subaru.

Newby won the Harold Palin Me­mo­rial Stages at Mal­lory Park on Oc­to­ber 9 and says the new B13 Im­preza is ready for more events. He’ll com­pete on the King­dom Stages (Novem­ber 5) and the Cad­well Stages (Novem­ber 20) in the car.

“The speed of it is night and day com­pared to any­thing else I’ve driven,” said Newby. “We’ve got a bit of work to do with the dampers but it’s re­ally com­ing on.

“Ev­ery rally we do im­proves the han­dling more. It’s a good en­try with a few world cars and some Dar­ri­ans. We’ll do well to beat the Es­corts and the Dar­ri­ans as they’re so light, but we’ll give it a go.”

The car is a light­weight Group N car, with the renowned TEG Sport en­gines, which have won rounds of the Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship when the se­ries fea­tured Group N cars at the front be­fore 2011.

The car also has a clever elec­tronic pad­dleshift gear change sys­tem.
