Kenny & Gwynn enjoy return to gravel on Rally Yorkshire

After three challenging tarmac rallies in a row Telford based Nick Kenny and his co-driver, George Gwynn, a resident of Machyllenth, enjoyed the return to gravel by finishing 7th overall in the British Rally Championship standings on last weekends International Rally of Yorkshire.

19 year old Nick only had the briefest of shakedowns earlier in the week but despite this the pair were happy with their pace on an event that is notorious for long, power sapping straights and had it not been for a puncture on the opening stage the pair could have finished even higher up the leader board.

The preparations for the K-motion backed pairing, the youngest partnership in the championship, began with a very positive recce and after suffering a series of niggling mechanical dramas on the previous round, the Ulster International, the Geoff Jones Motorsport run Subaru Impreza N12 ran faultlessly throughout the rally.

We had a good run this weekend and we are both pleased with how the recce went. The puncture cost us a bit of time and we were loosing out on the straights compared to some of the cars which were geared higher but all in all it was a very productive day for the pair of us.

The Safe Financials backed pair now have a bit of a break before they head to the final round, Wales Rally GB. But, with a series of tests planned for the next few weeks, the young pairing will be looking for a strong end to the season.
