Pryce read for International Rally debut
17 year old Aberangell student Osian Pryce is raring to go as he makes his international rally debut on this weekends Wales Rally GB. Whilst this will mark Osian's debut on the rally he has been an avid spectator over the years and will also be relying on the experience from co-driver Iestyn Williams, who has contested the event a number of times before.
Osian and Iestyn will compete on this, the final round of the 2010 FIA World Rally Championship, at the wheel of a Ford Fiesta ST, with support from G & M Pryce, Sbardun Motorsport, Morris Plant Hire, Glyn Roberts Welding, S.J & S Williams Contracting and Mid Wales Windows and Conservatories. Osian has already taken five class podiums with this car in his first season of British rallying, however the youngster is well aware of the challenges that he will face this weekend.
Wales Rally GB has to be the biggest challenge of my rallying career so far! I have been looking forward to this ever since I passed my driving licence in March and now the time has finally come. I have watched the rally for a number of years now and realize how tricky it will be, especially if it rains, but I am just aiming to do my best and we will be focusing on a finish rather than trying to set some crazy stage times!
Osian and Iestyn will begin their preparations with a two day recce of the stages on Tuesday and Wednesday. After the ceremonial start in Cardiff on Thursday night the crews will face a day of rallying action in Hafren, Sweet Lamb and Myherin on Friday. Saturday sees the crews head to Radnor and the daunting Epynt Military Ranges before the final day of action in the South Wales forests near Swansea.
