It is all systems go for the Paul Sellick Brickwork Rally Sprint on Sunday.
IT is all systems go for the Paul Sellick Brickwork Rally Sprint on Sunday.
Around 40 entries have been received and competitors have a superb stage to look forward to - very fast in places, demanding in others and there is the infamous ‘yump’ that Weston Motor Club used last October on the Regency Stages Rally.
Almost half the entry is from Somerset-based competitors and they include Duncan Holder from Mark, last year’s winner, but this time in his ex-works Rover Vitesse. Mike Threlfall from Taunton will be there in his rapid Evo X, as will Gary le Coadou from Broadway near Ilminster, in his ex-works Toyota Corolla WRC.
Colin and Andy Knott (father and son) from Congresbury will be sharing their Subaru Impreza and son Richard Knott will be in his rapid BMW 325, a real family affair.
Local garage proprietor Ian Studley from Winscombe will be trying hard in his two litre Escort, which he is sharing with Keiron Simmons from Weston. Brothers Ben and Bryan Grenter from Street have entered their venerable, but very quick Talbot Sunbeam and there is an entry from Alison Lock from Chard in her Saxo VTS.
The competition is going to be hot and there should be some exciting driving to be seen by spectators, who will be welcome through the entry gate from the A371 next door to the Helicopter Museum. There will be a car park charge, but no charge for the occupants.
