Jones returns for season finale

Stuart Jones will make a welcome return to British Rallying when he contests the final round of the 2009 MSA British Rally Championship, the International Rally of Yorkshire, at the wheel of a Mitsubishi Evo X.

Jones and co-driver Andy Bull began the 2009 season strongly with a fine third overall on the International Rally of North Wales but then a lack of budget halted their championship bid.

A recent outing in Iceland, where Jones won the International Rally Reykjavik encouraged the former Peugeot Super cup Champion to return to the British Rally Championship for the final round.

“The support and encouragement people have given me all season long has been incredible,” he said. “I've been following the BRC all year and would have loved to have been involved in the title fight but at least now I have the chance to come out and play in Yorkshire.

“I'm under no illusions about this weekend. We are on a really tight budget and I haven't done the rally for a couple of years but I have a great team behind me and we'll just go out there and do our best.”

Jones will be contesting the International Rally of Yorkshire in a car owned by former Icelandic Rally Champion Daniel Sigurdarson, which has been built and will be run by SJR Motorsports with assistance from Lico UK, Petronas Lubricants, Rally Insurance, PIAA, Rallytech and Nunns Mitsubishi of Grimsby.
