JRM targets podium repeat on Jim Clark

This weekend will see another first for the JR Motorsports Rally Team, when they head across the border and into Scotland for the Jim Clark International Rally and the British Rally Championship's inaugural asphalt event for their Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X.

Following an impressive third-place finish on round two, the Pirelli Rally, the team are confident that the development of the new car is headed in the right direction and aim to capitalise on the performance achieved last time out.

Since then, driver David Bogie has tested the car on tarmac for the first time and was delighted with the outcome.

“Following the Pirelli Rally we knew that the car was getting close to being on the leading pace on gravel,” he said. “Its turn-in and grip out of corners is excellent, so when the team changed the car to a tarmac set up, the handling was excellent right from the start and we only needed to make a few adjustments to get it 100 per cent.

“With this being my first event for the team on anything other than gravel, it is difficult to tell how competitive we will be this weekend. But if the car goes as well as it felt during the test, then another podium finish could well be on the cards.”

Currently leading the British Rally Championship Team's category, as Team JRM Lico, JR Motorsports will only field the one car this weekend in Scotland.
