Crosby and Pullan look to land back-to-back Rally of the Tests wins
Former Formula 3000 team manager Paul Crosby and co-driver Andy Pullan will bid to repeat their 2017 victory on the Rally of the Tests when this year’s rally starts in Harrogate on Thursday evening.
The Porsche 356 of Crosby and Pullan is among a 90-car entry for one of the toughest UK classic rallies as the route runs from Harrogate to Bristol via mid-wales.
Crosby worked for March Engineering, Dave Price and Eddie Jordan in F3000 in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
After Thursday evening’s prologue in Yorkshire, crews face three long days before the Sunday afternoon finish in Bristol. The route takes in 30 special tests and 17 regularity sections in an event that recreates the RAC Rallies of the 1950s. The overnight halts will be at Sutton Coldfield on Friday and Newport on Saturday. Entries feature cars up to the early 1980s, but the main awards are for pre ’68 cars.
