Pritchard returns for another taste of the Tempest

Jason Pritchard to end 2009 season with Tempest Rally outing.
Double British Class R2 Rally champion Jason Pritchard returns to Aldershot for the Tempest Rally this coming weekend a year on from finishing inside the top ten overall and the 21-year-old will be aiming for a similar result this time around.

In 2008 the British Rally Elite member was at the wheel of a four-wheel drive turbocharged Subaru Impreza and impressed mightily in what was only his second ever rally in a four-wheel drive.

This year he will use the Citroen C2R2 Max that he drove to class victory on a number of events in '09 and admits that he has his eye on the overall two wheel drive honours.

"Last year the Tempest was a steep learning curve for me but I really enjoyed the event. The opportunity to contest a rally so close to London is rare and so it seemed a good event to end the season with," he noted.

"We are working really hard on plans for 2010 and this might be the last rally I do in the C2R2 Max so I am keen to give it the best outgoing result possible.

"This will be the first rally this year where I have to use organisers' notes so I won't have the confidence to fully commit to them but we aim to have a laugh."
