Bull ready to make history on home event
International Rally Co driver Andy Bull is ready to make history when he takes to the start of this weekends Wales Rally GB alongside promising young PWRC driver Stuart Jones in the exciting new MG Super 2000 Sport. This weekends rally will mark the debut of a Super 2000 specification car in the hands of a Production World Championship registered driver.
Andy recently sat alongside Stuart on the inaugural Rally Ireland, the penultimate round of the 2007 World Rally Championship and whilst gearbox gremlins on the Mitsubishi Evo 9 robbed the pair of a certain top 5 class finish Andy was still pleased with how the weekend had gone.
Rally Ireland was always going to be a tough rally, so just to finish was an achievement. Stuart has developed a lot as a driver since I last sat alongside him and our times in Ireland showed he has the pace.
I have done Wales Rally GB a number of times before so I am hoping that my experience will help us give the exciting new MG a strong WRC gravel debut.
With there being only 2 weeks between the tarmac based Rally Ireland and Wales Rally GB, a loose surface event, and the fact that the MG is still under construction, the pair will only have 1 day in which to test and fine tune the MSD run car. However Stuart does have prior experience, having been involved in testing the prototype car back in September.
Andy and Stuart will begin their preparations for the final round of the 2007 World Rally Championship with a two day recce in the welsh forests around Swansea before the ceremonial start of the 3 day long event on Thursday 29th November 2007.
