Delaney signs up to new Swift rally series
Former Junior 1000 driver Tom Delaney will compete in the new Suzuki Swift Shining Stars series this year.
Delaney, son of SVP Motorsport preparation outfit owner Dom, will compete in the new series after making his adult rally debut in a Swift on the Woodpecker Rally last year. He also competed on the Wyedean Rally.
“We’re just tidying it up at the minute,” said Delaney. “Malcolm Wilson will be our first event, we had an entry in for the Cambrian but I think we’re a bit tight for time.
“I do most of the work on the car myself. Obviously dad is there watching over my shoulder. It’s good in a sport like rallying to be able to do that as you never know what’s going to go wrong.
“It’ll be a big step up from the Juniors. Last year didn’t go to plan with so many mechanical issues but we’ve been over the car over winter and hopefully we’ll be good to go.”
