Pritchard keen to be in thick of it in Yorkshire.

by Geoff Mayes


Jason Pritchard and co-driver George Gwynn are eager to maintain their current form when the 2008 Tesco 99 Octane MSA British Rally Championship returns to gravel this weekend, on an event that will mark the first time the pair compete together on the loose stuff.

Whilst the BRC may have kicked off on gravel with the Pirelli International Rally back in April, Pritchard and Gwynn were forced to miss the season opener after the former broke his ankle.

Since then the 20-year-old has made a full recovery and with a win and a second place finish on the past two rallies the pair now find themselves back in the thick of the championship battle.

Pritchard and Gwynn, whose combined age of just 45 years makes them the youngest pairing in the 2008 championship, are contesting the C2R2 Cup in a North Road Garage supported Citroen and after a strong showing on the International Rally of Yorkshire in 2007, the British Rally Elite driver will be hoping to back up last years pace with a strong result this weekend.

"We have really enjoyed our champagne moments of late," said Pritchard, "and although this is the first gravel event we will do in the little C2R2 this year both George and I are hoping that we can continue with our strong pace. We want to again be in the thick of the class battle."
