Wright out to maintain lead on Quinton Stages

Bentham's David Wright will be back in rally action this Saturday when he contests round six of the BTRDA rally championship, the Quinton Stages rally.

After five successful rallies this year Wright is leading the championship by two points from Nigel Griffiths and he is keen to maintain his lead on the Llandovery-based event.

Wright and co-driver Michael Wilkinson will once again be using a Giles Philips Motorsport Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9 backed by Grove Hill Garage and Kumho Tyres.

“We've had a good year so far with five decent results,” said Wright. “My aim is to keep up the successful run and get a top finish. We need to do beat our championship rivals if possible.

“The car has performed well so far and has been reliable so hopefully that will continue. We're hoping to have a new engine for the last two rounds of the championship but the car will be in the same specification as the previous round for the Quinton.

“The event uses some of the same stages as the Rally GB world championship event so it'll be good to test ourselves on the roads used by the top crews.

“I've got a little bit of experience of the stages as I contested the event in 2002 but I'm sure the condition of the roads will have changed since then,” he summed-up.
