Bev­eridge en­joys maiden Corolla out­ing

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Af­ter an 18-month build pro­gramme, Ian Bev­eridge de­buted his Toyota Corolla TE27 on the Red Kite Stages.

The for­mer Metro 6R4 driver has wanted to run the 1600cc Cat­e­gory 2 car since he was in­volved in the de­vel­op­ment of the car in the 1970s and had a good run to fourth in class on the event.

“We got the ’shell in April 2015 and it is a bit of an un­known quan­tity,” said the Brack­ley- based driver. Much of the work has been done by Robin Ward at DAMAX, bet­ter known for pre­par­ing Group C cars.

“It’s had to fit in with Robin’s com­mit­ments and the WTCC cal­en­dar,” said Bev­eridge, who is a se­nior race tyre con­sul­tant.

“We plan to do Rally North Wales next and then the Mid­night Sun Rally at the end of June and the Roger Al­bert Clark Rally,” said Bev­eridge.
