MG ZR TAKES TOP HONOURS IN MIDLANDS RALLY

MG ZR Gwyndaf Evans headed up a clean sweep and 100% finish for the MG team at the weekend as he took a Class win and overall victory in his MG ZR Super1600 in The Rally of the Midlands (17/18 May).

Gwyndaf, co-driven by Clare Mole, achieved top spot from over 40 entries on a weekend which saw the streets of Nuneaton, Bedworth, Hinckley and Atherstone turned into rally stages. The event was an ideal opportunity for some valuable testing on tarmac in preparation for the season ahead.

Finishing top of the class after 18 stages Gwyndaf said: "Iím very happy to have won the very first Rally of the Midlands. It was a good event for myself, MG and the organisers. The car ran faultlessly and itís a great feeling to come away with a win."

Class honours were taken by Tim Seipel (Class 1) and Rob Stone (Class 3) who competed in Group N MG ZRís. Runner-up in Class 3 was another MG ZR driven by Don Kettleborough.

The rally was staged following a unique partnership known as Motorsport in the Midlands, an initiative that sees backing from local councils and authorities. It is the same partnership which sees MG Sport & Racing supporting the recently launched MG ZR Rally Scholarship scheme.
