Third time lucky as Gwynn returns to Ireland
Top international co-driver George Gwynn returns to Ireland for this weekends Ulster Rally hoping for a much stronger run than on his past two visits, and will be hoping to continue the recent strong run of results that have elevated the youngster into third in the C2R2 co-drivers standings.
George, a rally technician by day, and who lives in Welshpool, joined forces with up and coming young Welshman Jason Pritchard at the start of this season. And whilst their championship aspirations suffered an early blow when Jason broke his ankle just before the start of the British Championship, the pair showed their true colours when they guided their North Road Garage backed Citroen C2R2 to C2R2cup honours on the notoriously tricky Rally Isle of Man. The pair also took third overall in the Irish Tarmac championship standings on the three day event!
Rally Isle of Man was such an incredible rally, and was a fantastic reward for all that Jason and I have been through this year. We've forged a really good relationship, both inside and outside the car, and with the season still far from over we have to give it everything we've got.
George and Jason are the youngest team in the championship, with a combined age of just 44 years between them. But what the pairing lacks in experience they make up for in enthusiasm and attention to detail. Rest assured they are certainly a combination sure to go far.
The Todds Leap Ulster Rally counts as the fourth round of the Citroen C2R2cup. 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.
The 2 day rally is based in Armagh and features over 160 stage miles on some of the most diverse tarmac roads in Ireland , presenting a true test of man and machine.
