AFTER two visits to the podium in the previous two rounds of the 2011 Dulux Trade MSA British Rally Championship, TEG-Sport’s number one driver Elfyn Evans (Wales) had to settle for a fourth place finish this past weekend when round three of the BRC series visited Carlisle for the Pirelli International Rally this weekend.
After a good start which had him in second place overnight, Evans, along with co driver Andrew Edwards then dropped time in the TEG Sport Pirelli Shoot Out sponsored Subaru Impreza N15 following a time consuming puncture on SS6.(Bower 2).
Because of the damage caused by the flailing rubber which in turn damaged the steering and brakes, Evans dropped further time on “killer Kielder’s” very dry and dusty stages, meaning he was happy to reach the finish this evening in fourth position and in doing so, consolidated his second place in the title race for the Carnforth-based team.
Elfyn Evans said afterwards: “We had quite a few problems today so I’m really pleased to get to the finish. “
