Black tar­gets Welsh Cham­pi­onship prize

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Cal­lum Black will look to make up for los­ing out on the BTRDA Rally Se­ries ti­tle by win­ning this week­end’s Welsh Rally Cham­pi­onship on the Wyedean Rally.

The Novem­ber 11 event, with stages around the For­est of Dean, is the ti­tle de­cider for the Welsh se­ries. A fin­ish for Black – who is seeded first on the road – should be enough to se­cure him the ti­tle. Group N ex­po­nent Andy Davies is the only per­son ca­pa­ble of al­ter­ing the course of the tro­phy. Davies has al­ready won the Group N class for the year.

Black had in­tended to fin­ish the year with his Wales Rally GB de­but in his Ford Fi­esta R5, but max­i­mum points on all Welsh rounds has changed his mind.

“I en­tered the event last year and fin­ished sec­ond over­all so I’m con­fi­dent of our over­all chances as well next week­end,” said Black. “I thought end­ing the year with Wales Rally GB would be per­fect, but a ti­tle or rally win would be bet­ter still.”

The BMWS of Colin Grif­fiths and Andy Fox will be joined by the Es­corts of Rob Den­nis and Tony Williams, along with Chris Pow­ell’s Sun­beam, in a fight for the two-wheel-drive

ti­tle hon­ours.
