Green Valley owner Simon Webster consolidated his Championship lead in the penultimate round of the BHRC (FUCHS LUBRICANTS Motorsport UK British Historic Rally Championship) and powered to a respectable third place, behind local duo Stanley Orr and Graham Henderson and Adrian Hetherington/Ronan O’Neill also in an Escort Mk2.
In his first drive in the Ulster Rally (Saturday 17 August), together with co-driver Jez Rogers, the Wavian branded car was always going to be up against it, but with just one drive remaining in the season, Simon and Jez now have a real opportunity to take the title in what has been an eventful season so far.
The last event of the 2019 rally is on Fri/Sat September 27/28: Trackrod Historic Cup (gravel).
