Corinium Stages Rally 28th April

Round 3 of this year's ASWMC Rally Championship would take place in Cirencester for the Corinium Stages Rally. This is a eight stage Rally with a total of 50 stage miles over Down Ampney Airfield.

Going into this event Chris & Steve are both currently 5th in the Championship & hoping to add points to the table.

Stage 1, Chris & Steve got off to a great start setting a good time for their first stage out. The conditions were set to be dry for the day meaning the top end powered cars would have the advantage over the Fiesta MS1.
Over the morning's stages the little Fiesta was certainly on its limits but struggling at this venue due to the very long straights, the car does not have the power for this kind of venue but it did not stop the crew pushing on.

Half way through the team where placed half way in the overall standings so a big push for the afternoons set of four stages would be needed.

Over Stages 5 & 6 Chris suffered with the brakes, they where over heating causing brake fade but still managed to set good times. This brake problem would be one they would suffer from till the end of the day despite bleeding & cooling the brakes down during a 25 minute service.
Chris & Steve managed to get through the remaining stages & climbed up the leader board to finish 32nd Overall & 5th in Class.
We are next out on the 18th of June for the 3 Counties Stages held in Honiton, Devon.
