Rally action in Canberra this weekend
- 23rd July 2008, 11:53am
The BRM Silverstone Safari - Round 4 of the 2008 PCD Engineering ACT Regional Rally Series - gets underway from 10.30am this Saturday.
The BRM Silverstone Safari, organised by the Light Car Club of Canberra, is the longest NSW Clubman/ACT round for many years, and has attracted plenty of interest, with a total of 44 entries, including NSW and ACT front runners, though to first-time gravel rally crews.
Currently leading the prestigious Gold Cup series, the local crew of Raymond Day and Mark Forbes will be pushing hard for outright honours in their Lancer Evo 3.
"We've put a lot of work into the car since Rally of Canberra, and I am confident we can challenge for the event win,” explained Day.
“Autopro ACT has come on board for the remainder of our 2008 championship season, and we would love to start things off on a high, by taking out the victory this weekend.
“We have always had the speed, but bad luck has set us back in previous years. This year the fight is on and we won't be backing off until after the final stage.”
Pushing them hard for outright honours will be Peter Taylor and Kim Martin, in their ex-Neal Bates Toyota Corolla Group N (P), and brothers Thomas and Michael Barrett, in their Lancer Evo 6.
Spectators can view the rally cars prior to the 10.30am start at Deeks car park, corner of Cotter Rd and Uriarra Rd, before catching exciting rally action as the first car races through the adjacent Castrol Corner spectator point from 10.25am.
