Charity co-driving for rally ace Chris Evans at Oulton
Rally fan, volunteer and competitor Chris Evans made a return to rally competition after 16 years out after winning a charity auction to join Brynmor Pierce in his Ford Fiesta ST on the Neil Howard Stages.
Evans, 47, is a paramedic, but has been working in rally control on various events for 15 years.
He is also a talented photographer, known for his company Chimera Photographic.
He bid £300 for the seat with Pierce, who auctioned the seat for the Welsh Air Ambulance through the Rally Forum at Wales Rally GB, which he organises.
The pair joined for the Oulton Park event last Saturday, finishing 57th overall.
“The day was fantastic and it was an absolute pleasure to be sat with Brynmor on his first outing in his newly acquired ST,” said Evans.
“We used SS1 to get to know each other and the car, then pushed from SS2 onwards. On SS6 the inevitable motion sickness kicked in...but got back to service and cleaned myself and car up and headed out for SS7, 8 and 9.
“Obviously the main aim of the day was to finish, which we did, and to raise money for the Wales Air Ambulance. The Just Giving page will remain live until the end of November. Donations are still welcome.”
