Carslaw to make four-wheel-drive de­but at Crail

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Scot­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship driver Caro­line Carslaw will make the step up to four-wheel-drive ma­chin­ery in the series next year.

Carslaw has com­peted in a Ford Fi­esta ST since 2012, but after be­com­ing a reg­u­lar Class 7 fron­trun­ner in the SRC, she’ll step up to a Subaru Im­preza start­ing with the King­dom Stages on Novem­ber 5 at Crail.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to it, a bit ner­vous too,” said Carslaw. “It’s a dif­fer­ent driv­ing style be­ing used to the front-wheel-drive Fi­esta. We’ve sold the Fi­esta. The plan is to do Crail as a warm-up event to get used to the car. Then we’ll do Grizedale at the end of Novem­ber as a gravel warmup and then we’ll do the Scot­tish cham­pi­onship next year. I felt like I’d taken the Fi­esta as far as I could with the re­sults we were get­ting.” ● MN would like to cor­rect a spelling er­ror made in last week’s is­sue. Charley Sayer-payne, 24, has been added to the MSA Academy co-driv­ers scheme.
