Reigning British Junior Rally Champion Garry Pearson from Duns finished 14th overall in the Rally Yorkshire at the weekend, which was the penultimate round of this year’s British Rally Championship.

However, on the 15 mile Langdale Stage, part of the Ford Fiesta R2’s Clutch Plate disintegrated causing a severe vibration in the engine with the resultant loss of power destroying Garry’s hopes of a Pirelli Star Driver nomination.

Remarkably Garry managed to bring the car home fifth in his Class despite the power and time loss. Garry next competes in the Rally Sunseeker in Bournemouth on October 18/19 – the final round of the BRC.
