Cristofaro set for British Rally Championship debut

Teenage rally driver Nick Cristofaro will make his British Rally Championship debut next weekend when he contests the Poole-based Rallye Sunseeker.

Cristofaro, from Milford Haven, has had an anxious wait since his last event as his car has required a large amount of repair work following an accident while he was leading his class.

“The car was taken to TEG Sport for repairs right after the Wyedean,” commented Cristofaro. “The accident damaged most of the right-hand side and we’ve needed several new panels as well as paint but I’m pleased to say that the car is looking as good as new and we’re all set for the Sunseeker.”

Cristofaro will contest the event with co-driver Rob Fagg in his Ford Fiesta ST which now has support from Autoglym and EKM Systems as well as TEG Sport, Pirelli, Genpower UK, Millers Oils and

“It’s great to get two new sponsors on board to support us with our 2011 rally programme, I am grateful to Autoglym and EKM Systems for their assistance.”

Rallye Sunseeker will have a ceremonial start in Poole town centre on Friday evening before a tough day of competition in the forests of Dorset and Hampshire on Saturday. The successful crews will be part of a high-profile town centre finish in Bournemouth on Saturday evening.
