After the accident in 2016 resulting in the Chris taking a six month break from Rallying to recover, Chris has now decided to enter the Brean Stages Rally on the 28-29 Jan in his Ford Fiesta MS1. The object of this rally is to get Chris's confidence back up in a Rally car while his Citroen DS3 R3T is being rebuilt after the accident on the Nicky Grist Stages.
Chris's Dad Steve will be co-driving for Chris at Brean so it will be a fun, family filled event.
For most people in the Rally world, competing in a rally like Brean Stages isn't a big deal as it is a single venue, But for Chris Wheeler Rallying this is a massive deal as we wasn't sure when we were going to get back into rallying, if at all.
We are happy to be joined by Pitcrew Online writer Neil Simmons, and photographer Viv Simmons at the weekend as they take a look at what life is like behind the scenes at a Rally.
Chris and Steve have been seeded car 59 for the rally!
If you are at the Brean Stages in January do come and say hello!
