Black targets Welsh Championship prize
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
