Yorkshire showdown for Ling

Welsh rallying duo Sebastian Ling and Aled Rees are looking forward to the trip to Yorkshire for this weekend's penultimate round of the 2007 Mitsubishi Evo Challenge. And with the Phillip Ling Estates and Pro Dent backed pair one of only two crews still in with a shot at the title it's all to play for.

Sebastian prepared for the return to gravel by contesting the Plains Rally recently, where he went up against some of the BRC drivers, and took Group N honours in his Kumho shod, SW Motorsports built Evo 9. This successful test has given the Newcastle Emlyn based rally drive a confidence boost.

We played around with the set up on the car all day and are very happy with the end result. I've always enjoyed the Yorkshire forests and am really looking forward to this weekends event. As it is also a round of the British Rally Championship it will give us the ideal opportunity to compare our times to the BRC regulars.

The International Rally of Yorkshire starts at 9am on Saturday 6th October with the first car due back mid afternoon. The Pickering based event takes in some of the famous RAC stages of old, including Dalby and Cropton and with over 100 stage miles in 1 day of rallying presents the drivers with quite a challenge.
