Wright aiming to continue successful run on Quinton Stages

Bentham’s David Wright is aiming to continue his successful 2011 rally season next weekend when he contests the Quinton Stages rally in Wales.

Wright has dominated his class so far this year taking four victories out of the five BTRDA championship events he has contested in his Proflex, Kumho Tyres, Drenth and Grove Hill Garage-supported GPM Mitsubishi Evo 9.

“We’ve had a really good season so far, as well as taking the class wins we’ve been mixing it with the more powerful World Rally class cars which I am very happy with,” commented Wright.

“Some new dampers have been fitted to the car since the last round and they seem to have made an improvement to the handling so it will be interesting to see if we’re any quicker.”

The rally is based in Builth Wells with the competitive action taking place on gravel tracks in the area of the Epynt military ranges.

“The stages used on the Quinton suit our car so I’m confident that we can get a good result. We got third overall last time we competed on the event and I’m targeting another podium finish as well as another class win.”
