Weston to enter Border Counties Rally

Dave Weston Junior to compete on the Border Counties Rally
Teenage Scottish rally driver Dave Weston Junior is using his Richard Burns Trophy prize money to give himself extra stage mileage on the Border Counties Rally this weekend, ahead of an attack on the British Rally Championship a week later.

The 19-year-old won the Richard Burns Trophy after winning the Production Cup on Rallye Sunseeker last month.

His prize was to take home the Trophy, £1,000 and an entry to the rally stage at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

“It was important to me to use the money I won in a way which honoured the memory of Richard,” he said. “Richard was the youngest driver to ever win the British Rally Championship when he took the title in 1993, aged 22. To follow in his footsteps would be a dream, so I need to give myself the best possible chances I can by getting in as much mileage as possible before this year's BRC starts.

“Border Counties is exactly a week before the first round of the BRC, the Bulldog Rally, so it's the perfect opportunity for me to get in some good pre-championship mileage. I cannot thank Rallye Sunseeker and the Richard Burns Foundation enough.”

The Border Counties features stages in the Wauchope and Kielder areas.
