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.
