Mccombie eyes Eng­land and Wales af­ter GB win

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Freshly crowned Wales Rally GB Na­tional win­ner Bruce Mccombie says more trips over the bor­der from his na­tive Aberdeen­shire could be on the cards af­ter last week­end’s re­sult.

Scot­tish cham­pi­onship reg­u­lar Mccombie could head over the bor­der af­ter beat­ing reg­u­lar BTRDA win­ner Luke Fran­cis.

“We’d like to do the Scot­tish cham­pi­onship again,” said Mccombie. “We’d like to come to Eng­land or Wales more, but there’s a lot of trav­el­ling. You come down to English and Welsh ral­lies and there’s an ex­tra day here and there. We’d like to have a bat­tle with these [English and Welsh] guys though.”

Mccombie was one of a large Scot­tish con­tin­gent on Wales Rally GB, but one driver miss­ing was this year’s SRC cham­pion Jock Arm­strong. The Subaru Im­preza driver had led last year’s event up un­til his car sheared a bear­ing on the fi­nal stage. This year, he rolled his car in test­ing be­fore the event and suf­fered bruised ribs.

Na­tional win­ner Mccombie to SRC?
