Horsey and Matovu to make British debut on Bulldog
African Pirelli Star Drive recipients Peter Horsey and Moses Matovu are eagerly looking forward to making their first truly international rallying appearance when the pair take to the start of the Bulldog International Rally of North Wales this coming weekend.
Mombasa born Horsey and Tanzanian based Matovu are both regulars in the Kenyan National Rally Championship and the pair have a number of appearances in the African Rally Championship to call upon but the Bulldog Rally, the opening round of the 2010 Dulux Trade MSA British Rally Championship, will be the first time either crew has competed outside of Africa!
Peter; I've been told that some of the stages are the same as the ones used on Rally GB last year and so I am really looking forward to the rally, although the stages might be a bit shorter than what we are used to back home!
Moses; I have always wanted to compete in the UK and this weekend the dream becomes a reality! It will be interesting to compare our times against the best of the British but as we are only using the rally for seat time and will have no opportunity to test before hand we have no set targets for the weekend!
Peter and Moses will use a Mitsubishi Evo X for the first time as the pair gain experience of the car ahead of their six round programme in the FIA World Rally Championship.
The Bulldog International Rally of North Wales is based in Welshpool and uses some of the most famous Mid Wales stages such as Myherin, Sweet Lamb and Dyfi. The rally begins with a ceremonial start at 07:30 am. After tackling eight special stages the crews are due back at the finish at approximately 5pm
