Harry plans to pick up points on Plains rally

Bangor on Dee rally driver Harry Morgan will resume his BTRDA RF1.0 championship battle next weekend when he contests the Plains rally.

After two podium finishes in his three events so far this year Morgan lies in third place on the championship leaderboard and his target for the Welshpool-based event is to build on his good start to the year and pick up another haul of championship points.

“I’m pleased with my season so far and it’s been great to get two excellent results in my first full season of competing”, said Morgan. “The car had no problems on the last event in Somerset so we’ve had no major work to do on it, we’ve just checked everything over and we’re ready to go!”

Morgan will have a new co-driver for the event, BRC Challenge co-driver Sasha Heriot will be on the pacenotes.

“My usual co-driver is not available for the event so I’m grateful to Sasha for agreeing to sit in with me. She is competing in the BRC Challenge this year and has already done an event that used a similar route to the Plains rally so hopefully this will be a big help to me.”

The rally starts from Welshpool on Saturday morning and the crews face a tough days competition in Dyfi, Gartheiniog and Hafren forests as well as a run around the popular Woodyard stage.
