Jimmy McRae is the Master
Jun 25, 2007
Jimmy McRae, codriven by Andy Richardson was the fastest driver over the ten stages of last weekends Mid-Wales Historic Rally driving the Prepfab prepared Stobart Mk2 Escort RS1800.
This was McRae’s third class and first outright win in this seasons British Historic Rally Championship (BHRC) and he is now lying second in the championship, only points separating him from regular championship campaigner David Stokes.
“A very good event with 62 miles of the best forestry road in Mid-Wales. There were three stages on Saturday evening with a further six stages on Sunday. The stages were very quick with a mixture of wet and dry conditions. It was especially satisfying for me as the competition was strong with many younger drivers and there were locals who knew the roads very well but I still managed to beat them. I finished 5 seconds ahead of Julian Reynolds who is young enough to be my son and third place man Martin McCormack was even younger.
I was very pleased with my own performance and hope to contest the remaining four rounds of the BHRC to challenge the Baker, David Stokes,” said a triumphant Jimmy McRae.
