Revolution Wheels ready for the Isle of Man

Revolution Wheels supported young talent Alistair Fisher will be just one of a number of top drivers to run on the new Flow formed ultra lightweight Millennium II 18 inch wheels when the MSA Dulux Trade British Rally Championship heads across the Irish Sea to the Rally Isle of Man for this weekends event.

With changeable weather and a mixture of high speed roads and narrow bumpy lanes, the Rally Isle of Man is rightly deserving of its infamous reputation and having reliable equipment is a pre requisite for any driver wanting to add his name to the winner's trophy.

Current Irish Tarmac Championship leader Alistair Fisher finished on the podium here 12 months ago and fully intends to use that experience to push hard from the very start of the two day rally. Fisher is also confident that the gremlins which cost him a potential win on the recent Jim Clark Rally have been resolved and that his Mitsubishi Evo 9 will be competitive this weekend.

Former Pirelli Star Drive recipient Adam Gould may have finished sixth overall on the Jim Clark but top three stage times as he recovered from an early puncture indicate that there is plenty more to come from this rapid pilot. And with his Subaru Impreza N11 having won this rally for the past two years the car is certainly a proven package!

Recent four wheel drive convert Max Utting has the least amount of experience amongst the Revolution shod drivers and Max will purely be focusing on gaining more experience on the black stuff and bringing his Subaru Impreza N12b back to the finish of this tricky event.

Historic Mk 1 Ford Escort exponent David Stokes won the recent Severn Valley Historic Rally and always goes well on tarmac. He is anxious to get his 2010 Dunlop/ Wonago.com MSA British Historic Rally Championship back on track after mixed results earlier in the season and will certainly be one to watch this weekend.

Warren McKiernan, from Revolution Wheels; the Rally Isle of Man is one of the most difficult in the calendar because of the character of the roads and especially the changeable weather conditions. Anyone who does well here has a right to be proud of their performance on an event where even just finishing is a big achievement! I am confident that the guys will fly the flag and do us proud!

The 2010 running of the Rally Isle of Man will begin with a super special stage through the town of Douglas on Friday morning. The crews then face a total of 12 stages on the opening day before tackling a further 8 high speed tests on Saturday. The rally ends with the famous 14 mile long "Classic" stage which uses parts of the TT circuit and finishes in front of the grand stands back in Douglas town.

Revolution Wheels manufacture all types of wheels for both historic and modern motorsport events, ranging from 10 inch all the way through the range to the new, ultra lightweight Millennium II 18 inch wheels which are suitable for everything from Production cars to Super 2000 and World Rally Cars.
