Jason soars to Red Kite success

Welsh rallying talent Jason Pritchard scored his second ever rally victory when the 21 year old powered his Subaru Impreza Group N rally car to a slim six second win over more powerful World Rally Cars on the weekend’s Red Kite Stages. The rally is typically held in mid January but after the region was hit by heavy snowfalls, the event was postponed. As the third round of the Welsh Rally Championships the rally had attracted a strong list of entries.

Jason and co-driver Robbie Durant were using the Llandovery based event as a test session ahead of the second round of the 2010 Dulux Trades MSA British Rally Championship and with their FCS Laser Mail, North Road Garage and Total Impreza Magazine supported Subaru N16 running faultlessly, the pair won half of the stages to take the fantastic victory.

Wow, this is so awesome! This is only my second rally in the car and to win in Wales is very special! Dust was a bit of an issue on some of the stages but Robbie was great and organised us a two minute gap which helped massively. The car was faultless and I enjoyed the whole day!

Jason and Robbie now head to the infamous Kielder Forest complex near Carlisle for the Pirelli International Rally. The rally begins with a couple of night time stages on Friday 23 April before a full day of rallying on Saturday.
