Pritchard ready to push this weekend.
Builth Wells based rallying talent Jason Pritchard is confident that, although he has not completely recovered from breaking his right foot, he will be closer to the pace of the front runners in the Citroen C2R2cup this weekend.
British Rally Academy Elite Member Jason, who is co-driven by Welshpool based George Gwynn, drove through the pain barrier on the Jim Clark Memorial Rally, to take sixth place points just six weeks after breaking his right foot in a road accident. Since then Jason has been working on his fitness and recently drove a storming rally on the 2 day long Rally of the Midlands. Recovering from a strange time penalty Jason began the second day of the rally over 2 minutes off the lead and ended the 90 mile rally an agonising 1 second off the top spot!
My run on the recent Rally of the Midlands has given me a lot of confidence ahead of the Rally Isle of Man. My foot is not quite 100% yet, and still hurts quite a bit. But at least I can push harder now. The rally worked well as it allowed George and I more time together in the car. The C2R2 is working well, the partnership is gelling nicely and so now it’s time to get down to business! I went well on the Isle of Man last year and we know where we want to be at the end of this weekend.
Jason and George are contesting the full Tesco 99 Octane MSA British Rally Championship in their North Road Garage backed Citroen C2R2 as part of their quest for the C2R2cup honours. The overall champion gets to take part in the shootout for a dream prize of driving a Citroen Super 1600. This prize, along with dedicated TV coverage for the British Rally Championship on Sky Sports means the championship is brilliant value for money for both competitors and sponsors alike.
