Swann rally looking forward to Yorkshire

The two Revolution Wheels backed British Rally Championship contenders, Rob Swann and David Meredith, are both looking forward to the return to gravel when the BRC heads to Yorkshire for the penultimate round of the 2007 championship.

Bishop Stortford based Rob has experienced his best BRC campaign to date and finds himself lying third in the standings after 4 rounds. Strong runs on all three tarmac based events have provided the foundation for his season but with the Essex businessman's favoured surface being gravel he is anticipating a strong finish to the season.

I've really enjoyed this season. We've had some niggling little problems but to be lying 3rd is great. I've always enjoyed the Trackrod and so am confident ahead of this weekends rally.

Rob was present at the recent Castle Coombe Rally Day where, at the wheel of his Geoff Jones Motorsport run Subaru Impreza N12, he entertained the crowds with his neat and precise driving.

David Meredith, who pilots the Revolution Wheels backed Mitsubishi Evo 9, has been preparing for the forthcoming return to gravel by running as course car on the recent Plains Rally in Welshpool.

I wasn't happy with the setup and handling on my car but we've recently done a lot of work to her and used the Plains as a test. The car is much better now, she turns in well and I have more confidence in the fast stuff.

The International Rally of Yorkshire starts at 9am on Saturday 6th October with the first car due back mid afternoon. The Pickering based event takes in some of the famous RAC stages of old, including Dalby and Cropton and with over 100 stage miles in 1 day of rallying presents the drivers with quite a challenge.
