Dy­lan Davies to Pok­er­stars for as­phalt de­but

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

BTRDA driver and team boss Dy­lan Davies will switch gravel for as­phalt for the first time on the Pok­er­stars Rally on the Isle of Man.

The Welsh­man missed out on Rally GB af­ter find­ing a prob­lem on his Subaru Im­preza.

“We could have done the event but it might have done a lot of dam­age and I’d rather not blow the en­gine,” said Davies, who ran two cars in the na­tional rally on the event.

“I’ve never done any proper Tar­mac. My co-driver put an en­try in for us so it should be a lot of fun. I’m not ex­pect­ing any­thing, just to go out and have a bit of fun.”

Daniel Harper can seal the Manx Rally Cham­pi­onship on the event in his unique BMW Mini Cooper S. He leads Ge­orge Col­lis­ter by 16 points go­ing to the Isle of Man.

Also on the en­try list is Isle of Man TT win­ner Michael Dun­lop, who missed the Rally Isle of Man in Septem­ber de­spite putting in an en­try.

Davies drove the short Great Orme stage on Rally GB in 2015
