Manx testing for Dave Weston Junior

Dave Weston Junior to prepare for Jim Clark International by taking in Manx Telecom Rally.
Dave Weston Junior has entered this weekend's Manx Telecom Rally as an asphalt test.

The event comes three weeks before the Jim Clark International Rally, the first asphalt round of the 2010 Dulux Trade MSA British Rally Championship.

"We're purely entering the rally to get some asphalt mileage under our belts," said Weston Jr. "We won't be gunning for glory on the stages, it's simply a test to look at set up and get rid of any asphalt gremlins before the competition starts again on the Jim Clark in Scotland."

Also using the event as a test are British champion Keith Cronin and fellow BRC competitor Euan Thorburn.

"With Keith and Euan there from the BRC it could be hard to remember this is only meant to be a test and not get caught up in competition," Weston Jr. continued.

"But we need to keep our eye on the main goal, plenty of miles of great asphalt testing on the famous Manx roads, which will assist us on the Jim Clark later this month. It's not where we finish we need to think about, it's ensuring we leave the island happy with our set up."

The Manx Telecom Rally starts on Friday night with the traditional stages through Port Erin, before a day's rallying on Saturday. Junior and Ieuan Thomas are seeded at number nine in the Ramsport Subaru Impreza N14.
