More points for Jason on high speed Irish run

Builth Wells based Jason Pritchard and co-driver Robbie Durant survived a drama filled International Rally of Northern Ireland to record their fourth top six result of the 2010 Dulux Trade MSA British Rally Championship. The pair overcame a high speed moment and a time consuming puncture to finish the two day event 16 seconds ahead of arch rival, and championship leader, Jonnie Greer.

22 year old Jason, in only his first season of four wheel drive rallying, has balanced consistency with raw pace and after fine tuning the setup on his North Road Garage backed Subaru Impreza N2010, the youngster gained the confidence to really push, culminating in a second fastest overall stage time on the final test! Before that Jason had lost time with a punctured front left wheel which he was forced to drive on for five miles on Friday night. If you remove the time loss from this incident it is possible that a second consecutive top three finish might have been on the cards!

The pace this weekend was unreal and I am very happy with how we have performed. We are learning things on every rally and to set the times we are producing is a great feeling. I know that there is plenty more to come and am now really looking forward to the International Rally of Yorkshire.

After five rounds of the prestigious Dulux Trade MSA British Rally Championship, Jason and Robbie find themselves third overall in the standings which is extremely impressive considering their relative lack of experience of this class of machinery. The final round of the series is based in Scarborough and takes place on Friday 24th and Saturday 25 September.
