Dylan Davies to Pokerstars for asphalt debut
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
