'Him' is everywhere!

The Pirelli International Rally has just finished, and according to the event's website...

...the MG ZR EX258 of Gwyndaf Evans and Chris Patterson finished in 12th Overall. More importantly it won the Super 1600 category outright!

First event on gravel! First finish! First win! Excellent. They had been lying as high as 6th, then dropped to 10th with shock absorber failure, only to lose a further 2 1/2 minutes on a road section due to gear selection problems.

Nice to get the car's first finish behind the team. Well done to MG Sport & Racing, Gordon Spooner Engineering, Gwyndaf & Chris and all the mechanics - this should hopefully put to rest the individuals knocking the rally programme once and for all!

Aswell as the EX258 there were another two ZRs on the rally. Rob Stone finished 28th Overall and 2nd in Class N3, and Rob Gill was 30th and 3rd in Class N3.

Well done to all!

Did any forum members go to the rally? Maybe someone could give the forum some first hand opinion of the event?

Kind regards,
