Final Pirelli Star Driver nomination announced

The final round of the Tesco 99 Octane MSA British MSA Championship, Rally GB, has seen the final nomination in the inaugural Pirelli Star Driver competition.

Matt Beebe has impressed many observers all year with some cracking results in his family team run MGZR and his problems on Rally GB did not detract from the judges decision to include him.

His stage times were good enough to put him in the frame but the usually reliable car suffered transmission problems on day one with alternator failure on Sunday forcing him to take the plaudits on the ramp without a car. His Super Rally result was, however, enough to give him the Championship Rally 2 class win by one point from James Wozencroft.

The now familiar "yellow jersey" was duly donned, both he and Welsh co-driver Gareth Roberts beaming at the finish in Cardiff. The nomination will add his name to the final list of drivers who attend the showdown in the North of England in mid December.

The contenders include newly crowned BRC Champion Guy Wilks, Citroen C2 driver George Thomas, British Junior and Rally 3 Champion Darren Gass, Mitsubishi Evo Challenge winner Philip Morrow and Dealer Team Suzuki driver Wozencroft.
