Newly-crowned North of England Tarmacadam Rally champion Gordon Morrison will head to the Pokerstars Rally this weekend after what he says is his best performance of the season on the recent Cheviot Stages.
Morrison – driving a TEG Sport Subaru Impreza co-driven by Calum Macpherson – has won three events in the championship this year and topped that off with a brilliant third overall on the Cheviot in treacherous conditions against strong MSA Asphalt opposition.
After wrapping up the title he set out to win at the start of the year, Morrison hasn’t decided on what he will do next year.
“I’ve not set my mind on any championship, I just want to do more bucketlist events,” he said. “I’ve got an entry in for the Pokerstars and I’m first reserve now having started at 16th, so I’m getting there.
“We went to Ireland this year and did the Donegal Harvest. It was amazing. I had a great time, the atmosphere is great and they really want you to be there. I want to try and do the big Donegal. Hopefully Mull and the Jim Clark will be back too.”
Morrison has ordered a new Skoda-based car from TEG which is currently in development, and will likely arrive halfway through 2019.
