Roberts ju­nior to try Cam­brian Rally

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

An­other gen­er­a­tion of the Roberts fam­ily from North Wales, Iwan ju­nior, will tackle Satur­day’s Cam­brian Rally in the his­toric Ford Es­cort Mk1 usu­ally driven by York­shire ace Adam Mil­ner.

Iwan, from Ffes­tin­iog, will con­test his home event in the Team Ral­loy 1600cc Es­cort. Like Mil­ner and the car’s builder Roy Jarvis, Roberts is a mo­tor­cy­cle tri­als rider and is the cur­rent Welsh cham­pion.

He is the son of Iwan se­nior and nephew of the late John ‘Bont’ Roberts, well known North Wales ral­ly­ing broth­ers, and John is a past win­ner of the Cam­brian.

“He won his class last year in the fam­ily’s Toy­ota Corolla so I hope our car sur­vives,” said Jarvis.
