Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Reign­ing John Eas­son Award win­ner Matthew Jack­son made an im­pres­sive four-wheel-drive ral­ly­ing de­but in his Subaru Im­preza, de­spite be­ing ill for the ma­jor­ity of the event.

Jack­son was suf­fer­ing from flu-like symp­toms and strug­gled to com­pete on Fri­day, but felt pro­gres­sively bet­ter through Satur­day evening and Sun­day.

Com­pet­ing in the na­tional class, Jack­son and co-driver Claire Wil­liams went on to fin­ish 11th over­all.

“I was much bet­ter on Sun­day com­pared to Fri­day,” said Jack­son. “We got there in the end. There’s loads left to come but for us it was im­por­tant to com­plete all the miles and not make any stupid mis­takes. The time was prob­a­bly aw­ful for Brenig [last stage] but we needed to fin­ish. For our first time in a four-wheeldrive car, I’m made up.”
