Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

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.
