Club member Tom Wood has teamed up with nineteen-year-old Welshpool driver Zak Hughes to take on this year’s MRF Tyres Fiesta ST Trophy. The crew look to contest the championship in their M-Sport Built Fiesta ST. The Championship runs alongside the BTRDA Championship and will include some of the UK’s signature events.
The opening round will be the Llandudno based Cambrian Rally on the Saturday 17th February. The rally takes in some famous stages that are also used by the World Championship drivers on Wales Rally GB such as Alwen and Penmachno tests with a mid-day service at the Surf Snowdonia venue.
This year’s championship sees a new sponsor in the form of Indian Tyre Manufacturer MRF Tyres. All the crews compete on the same tyre creating a level playing field within the championship.
