Cave and Cole enter RBM Rally

Tom Cave will compete on the Richard Burns Memorial Rally next month and the youngster will be co-driven by Neil Cole, the face of the World Rally Championship on UK digital television channel, Dave.

Competing on the event was Cole's idea, suggested to Cave when the 17-year-old was interviewed in Poland, his most recent WRC outing.

Cole contested the Richard Burns Memorial Rally last year and wanted to repeat the experience this year, sitting alongside the UK's first minor international rally driver.

Cave readily agreed and an entry was put in, with the pair assigned car #100 in Cave's regular Group N Ford Fiesta ST.

“I was surprised and delighted when Neil suggested doing the Richard Burns Memorial Rally together,” said Cave. “We'd got to know each other a little over the course of Rally Portugal and Rally Poland this year, as well as on Wales Rally GB last year and when he suggested it, I couldn't say 'no'.

“The Richard Burns Foundation is an incredibly worthy cause and to be able to support it by doing something that I love is an amazing opportunity.

“The whole event seems to be put together by people who want to help others, so if we can support that by taking part and perhaps doing our bit to raise awareness of it and generate even more fundraising, then it's the least we can do.”

The Richard Burns Memorial Rally is in its second year and was set-up by sergeant Chris Daykin of II(AC) Squadron, based at Marham.

Daykin formed a relationship with the former world rally champion when he took a flight in a Tornado from Marham in 2000 and Burns subsequently helped Daykin with his rallying career.

Last year, the event raised over £36,000 for charity with 100 competitors taking part over two days.
