Yorkshire beckons for Pritchard
Rapid young Jason Pritchard is gearing up for the forthcoming International Rally of Yorkshire, the final round of the 2009 MSA British Rally Championship and an event which the 21 year old Builth Wells resident is familiar with, after dominating his class on the event last year, en route to taking the Citroen C2R2cup championship.
Jason, a member of the British Rally Elite, and co-driver Andrew Edwards will be looking for a strong run following their recent impressive performance on their first ever overseas rally, the Flanders Rally in Belgium. There Jason and Andrew were pleasantly pleased to find themselves on the pace of the rapid locals despite never having contested the rally before and with no allowance for testing their FCS Laser Mail, North Road Garage and Competition Car Insurance supported C2R2 Max before hand.
Flanders was a real confidence boost as it proved that we are on the pace no matter where we go. Although the International Rally of Yorkshire is not a round of the Citroen Racing Trophy I'm still looking forward to contesting the rally and my target is to be in the thick of the 2 wheel drive action from the very beginning!
The 2009 International Rally of Yorkshire will be based once again in Pickering and will consist of nine high speed stages through the famous Yorkshire forests of Dalby, Cropton and Langdale. The whole event takes place on Saturday 26th September with the first car away at 08:40am.
