Wales Rally GB to be the highlight of Harraways debut season

Weston Super Mare resident Simon Harraway is all set and looking forward to his first ever World Rally, the final event in what has been a whirl wind debut season for the former Karting champion.

Simon, who recently became a father, only contested his first ever rally in March 2007 and since then has continually impressed on every event he has contested. After finishing 5th in class on his gravel debut Simon then took a top 10 finish on the Bulldog Rally in October.

Not only is Wales Rally GB only his third ever gravel rally but this is the first time Simon will have to make his own high speed 'pace' notes-- and at three days long and with over 230 miles of special stages this one event will see Simon rack up more competitive mileage than on the rest of the events he has contested to date!

Wow. 2007 has been such an incredible year. I can't believe it's time for Wales Rally GB. I have no idea what to expect and am just competing on this World Rally to gain experience. I'm very lucky to have Craig Drew sat with me for Rally GB, I think having a experienced co-driver will help me a lot and improve my pace. I recently became a Dad, so my daughter Olivia will be coming along to support me all the way!

Simon is joined by Craig Drew in the Regency Group, Oakley and Harkness Tyres backed Subaru. The pair will begin preparations for Wales Rally GB with a 2 day recce before taking to the ceremonial start in Cardiff on Thursday 29th November 2007 for the three day rally.
