Pritchard is a fantastic fifth on Jim Clark

21 year old Builth Wells resident Jason Pritchard drove a virtually faultless and trouble free Jim Clark International Rally to place his North Road Garage, FCS Laser Mail and Total Impreza Magazine supported Subaru Impreza N16 fifth overall on his first ever tarmac British Championship event in a four wheel drive!

Pritchard and co-driver Robbie Durant headed to Kelso third in the overall standings following a pair of fine results on gravel but were both acutely aware that the high speed roads around the Scottish Borders held a unique challenge. Changeable weather conditions made the going tricky but Pritchard adapted well, running well inside the top ten all event long and set a number of top three overall times along the way!

This was a really good rally for us. I honestly did not know what to expect as I have virtually no tarmac experience in a four wheel drive and so to set the times that I did I'm very happy! There is a lot more to come, and I know I can fine tune my notes. We played around with the settings and I've just learnt so much this weekend!

This result helps Pritchard hold onto his podium position in the 2010 Dulux Trade MSA British Rally Champion, a mere one point behind Jim Clark Rally winner Gwyndaf Evans! Pritchard will now begin preparing for the fourth round, the daunting International Rally Isle of Man which takes place in early July by tackling the Welsh Marches Mini Epynt Stages this Sunday.
