Stirling based driver Ellya Gold will be hoping to bring home championship points this weekend at the Dumfries based Scottish Rally. Rallying over some 100 miles of the finest gravel stages in Scotland Ellya and co-driver Kevin Plunkett plan to not only secure British Rally Championship points in this, the seasons second event but also add significantly to the 11 point lead the Scottish Team have over the Irish after the first round in Gateshead last month.

Testing their Formula 2000 Peugeot 206 last weekend Ellya said "I'm pleased with the performance of the teams car; the new differential, gearbox and suspension setup has given me much more confidence especially in the faster corners." Co-driver Kevin Plunkett added "Ellya is just getting quicker and quicker as his understanding of the car grows, additionally we've both found that the experience gained over the testing period has helped enormously with the pre-event reconnaissance."

The Surf Control sponsored Peugeot 206 has undergone radical development since last season with the entire car being returned to a basic shell and rebuilt by Promax in South Wales. Martino Corbelli, Marketing Director of SurfControl said, "We are very proud to be associated with Team Spirit Rally Sport this year, not only will it help raise awareness of SurfControl's name and product line but also give both Ellya and Kevin a significant chance of winning this years F2000 Title. SurfControl has quickly established itself as a leader in the Web & E-mail filtering market and now want to team up with another potential winner in their field and that has to be Team Spirit."
