Anderson impresses among BRC GB teams
As well as Bogie, other BRC contenders were in action over the Wales Rally GB weekend.
Jamie Anderson and Ross Whittock suffered through Friday with calliper failure, and decided not to rejoin under Rally2 regulations. Anderson was pleased with their first appearance on GB, ending his first year outside the BTRDA.
“We had a hairy moment where we nearly couldn’t stop for a corner in Hafren which was a close call,” he said. “When that was sorted we had a good push on and we wanted to get as close as we could to Sander Parn’s times. We beat him on a couple. But we’re glad to get to the end.”
Whittock took the Michael ‘Beef ’ Park Trophy from the event, an award the MSA Academy driver was proud to receive. It is given to recognise the Junior co-driver who most demonstrates the qualities associated with Park.
Bogie’s CA1 team-mate Fredrik Ahlin suffered turbo failure on Friday before crashing out on Saturday. He was the highest-placed Fiesta driver in fifth for most of Friday. He was also using English notes for the first time with Andrew Roughead onboard.
Rhys Yates was in action, but he lost 13 minutes stopping to change a puncture when the wheel stuck to the hub. He won the Richard Burns Trophy from the event as the top Junior driver.
