Kumho deal sees Wright return to BTRDA series

Bentham’s David Wright will compete in the BTRDA rally championship this year after agreeing a sponsorship deal with Kumho Tyres.

Wright, who won the BTRDA championship title in 2009, will use the same Mitsubishi Evo 9 that he competed in last year. The GPM-prepared car will, in addition to Kumho, be supported by Proflex, Drenth, Grove Hill Garage and York Brewery.

“It’s great to have the sponsors on board to help support a full championship campaign, I am very grateful for their help” commented Wright. “After winning the Grizedale Stages at the end of last year I am confident that we will go well in the BTRDA championship although we will be up against some tough competition in our class.”

“After narrowly missing out on the class championship last year we’ll be going all out to win it this year. We’ve done a couple of updates on the car since Grizedale so I think we should have the pace to be near the top of the leaderboard.”

Wright’s season will kick-off with the opening championship round, the Chepstow-based Wyedean rally on 11th February.
