De­laney signs up to new Swift rally se­ries

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

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.”
