Thorburn gunning for more points

Revolution Wheels Rally Team driver Euan Thorburn heads to the Ulster International Rally this weekend aiming for another strong result.

Dave Weston Junior was scheduled to join fellow Scotsman Euan Thorburn in what would have been the youngest two car team line up in the series.

However unfortunately administrative issues mean that Weston Junior's co-driver, Aled Davies is not registered for championship points and thus the 18-year-old is unable to score team points.

"Revolution Wheels were looking forward to working with Dave Weston Junior but unfortunately circumstances beyond our control have worked against us this time," explained team boss, Warren McKiernan.

"We anticipate another strong run for Euan though, who has enjoyed a recent run of good results and we will be hoping that this weekend continues that trend."

After picking up the Pirelli Star Driver nomination for his strong run on the Jim Clark International Rally in June, Thorburn and co-driver Campbell Roy finished fourth overall and first in class on their debut on the treacherous Rally Isle of Man in July.

This along with their recent third overall on the Speyside Stages, a round of the Scottish Rally Championship, has given the youngster a big confidence boost and he will want to build on all that this weekend.
