Morgan targets Rally First podium on Quinton Stages rally

Bangor on Dee’s Harry Morgan will return to rally action next weekend when he contests the Builth Wells-based Quinton Stages rally.

The event is round six of the BTRDA rally championship and, after missing the last round, Morgan presently lies in third place in the Rally First 1.0 class with his objective for the Quinton being to build on the excellent second in class result he got on the Plains rally in May.

“I was delighted with the result on the Plains rally, I’ll be looking for another strong finish on the Quinton,” said Morgan. “The stages look like they are going to be very fast and we’ve also got the challenge of the Route 60 ‘power stage’ where prizes are on offer for the fastest crew in each class. It’s going to be great to be competing on some of the classic Welsh stages.”

Morgan will be joined on the event by James Ford who will be reading the pacenotes in Morgan’s Nissan Micra.

“Both myself and James are young and at the start of our rallying careers but I feel confident that we have progressed well this year and we’re getting faster all the time.”

The rally will be fought over 44 miles of competitive stages on gravel tracks around the Epynt military ranges.
