Wright aiming to end season on a high

David Wright 'hoping' for another good result on the Grizedale Stages rally in Cumbria.
Bentham rally driver David Wright will end his 2009 rally season this Saturday when he contests the Grizedale Stages rally in Cumbria.

Wright has had a very successful year in which he won the national BTRDA rally championship and he hopes to finish the year with a good result in Grizedale.

“It's been a brilliant year so far, winning the title was great - we hadn't expected to be so competitive with it being the first year we had done the full BTRDA championship,” said Wright.

“We've gone well in Grizedale before so we're hoping for another good result although we're up against some tough competition.”

Wright will be driving his usual Mitsubishi Evo 9 which is prepared by Giles Philips Motorsport and backed by Kumho Tyres, Grove Hill Garage and Proflex. The car has had some work done on it since its last outing.

“We've fitted a new Drenth sequential gearbox and new Proflex suspension to the car which will help us try and keep up with the more powerful World Rally cars,” Wright explained.

"After the recent heavy rain in Cumbria the conditions will likely be very muddy and slippery, it should be a very enjoyable event."

The rally is based in Coniston and is contested over 42 miles of forest tracks in Grizedale and Dunnerdale forests.
