Sykes chasing Wales Rally GB entry

First published in Sport by

STOURBRIDGE'S Richard Sykes is pursuing a prestigious Wales Rally GB entry.

Building on the success of last year’s Road to Wales initiative, International Motor Sport (IMS), the organisers of Wales Rally GB, have added even more opportunities for Britain’s up-and-coming rally stars to compete against the world’s best teams at the event, which concludes the 2014 FIA World Rally Championship from November 13 - 16.

There are now seven prize drives up for grabs for the top three drivers in the MSA British Rally Championship (BRC), the BRC Rally Two champion, the BRC British Junior champion, BRC Challenge winner and the BRC Stars of the Future winner.

Richard Sykes, 48, is currently leading the BRC Challenge Trophy. He competed in Wales Rally GB last year and hopes to stay at the top of the championship to guarantee his place again for 2014.
