John Stone will re­turn to the Motorsport News Cir­cuit Rally Cham­pi­onship on this week­end’s Cad­well Stages, pro­vid­ing his engine is re­paired in time.

Stone’s Ford Fi­esta S2500 drowned out in the wa­ter­splash in the cham­pi­onship’s open­ing round, the Neil Howard Stages, on Novem­ber 5 while he and co-driver Carl Wil­liamson were lead­ing the event. The car lasted one more stage be­fore re­tir­ing.

“To be fair to them, they’ve worked night and day to get it fixed,” said Stone of Milling­ton en­gines. “The wa­ter­splash ripped the rear ’diff guard off, bent it 90 de­grees and pushed the car up at the back and down at the front. It de­stroyed the bot­tom end.”

The North Hum­ber­side Car Club-run event re­turns to the MN cham­pi­onship for a sec­ond year and also forms rounds of the ANEMMC, Road Run­ner, EMAMC and ANWCC cham­pi­onship.
