Weston Seals Tyre Deal

Scottish Rally Championship contender Dave Weston has sealed a deal with Korean Tyre Giant Kumho Tyres. The deal will see Kumho support Dave on his bid to win the 2002 Scottish Rally Championship.

Dave will be competing in the 2002 New Pig Scottish Rally championship in an all new Group A Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 6. The car was built and will be run by one of the top rally preparation companies in the UK, RAMSport based in Ruthin Wales, and is one of the best in the UK.

Dave will also be involved in developing Kumho's rally tyres with a testing and development programme throughout the year. He has already had a very positive test session where he received some coaching from rally legend Gwyndaff Evans.

With support from Kumho Tyres, Texaco Oils, Bruce McCombie Builders, Thistle hotels, John Lawrie and worldrallying.com, Weston feels that he can achieve his dream of becoming the Scottish Rally champion.

Weston knows the challenge won't be easy, but it is one he is eager to take on, he said: "The Kumho tyres have a lot of potential, with the new car and our programme of testing we should be hard to stop this year."

He added: "We have waited a long time for this, and finally I have the opportunity to achieve it, there is some tough competition in the championship, but we have already shown that we can more than equal their pace. If we can pull everything together and avoid hitting anymore rocks, then I am confident that we can win the championship."
