Brown ready to take on Epynt challenge

Rochdale’s Steve Brown will start his MSA Asphalt Rally Championship next weekend when he takes part in the Tour of Epynt in Wales.

Brown will use his old Nissan Micra 1300 as it has not been possible to finish work on his new Micra kit car in time for the event. The car, which is supported by Mintex Racing, Fuchs Titan Race, 710 Oil's, PIAA and Sabelt UK, was tested by Brown on the Roskirk Stages last weekend and he had a trouble-free run to 20th place.

“I’m looking forward to Epynt,” said Brown. “It’s a very challenging place to compete, especially in March when the tarmac roads are likely to be very slippery”.

“I’m aiming to get a good finish to kick off the championship, it’s a shame the new car won’t be ready but I’m confident we can go well in the old one, it has served me well over the years.”

“We put a late entry in for the Roskirk Stages to give the car a run before Epynt and that went really well.”

The Tour of Epynt takes place on the Epynt military ranges near Llandovery. Please visit for all the latest news and pictures.
