Oulton Park Rally instructor wins third title and Rally GB entry

Thursday, October 30 2014

Oulton Park RallyMaster and drifting instructor Alex Allingham has claimed his third Pirelli MSA Welsh National Rally Championship title in five years, winning a free entry to the Wales Rally GB on 13-16 November.

Alex and co-driver Chris Williams won the championship in their Subaru Impreza N10 on a drama-filled Cambrian Rally, based at Llandudno. The crew were delayed by an early incident and puncture on the opening stage, but fought back to defeat their title rivals and claim the prize entry to Britain's round of the World Rally Championship.

At the finish Alex said: "What a day! I don't think we can quite believe it, but I'm absolutely delighted to have taken the Welsh title. We've had more dramas today than we've had in the last two seasons put together. It certainly hasn't been easy, especially knowing we couldn't push too hard, but I've got to say, Chris has done a great job in keeping an eye over how everyone else was getting on and keeping a control over the whole situation."

Looking ahead to his Wales Rally GB appearance, Alex said: "It's a great opportunity, and one we can certainly generate publicity from. We're certainly planning on being there. Now we've got another race though, to find the budget to run the car."

MorganAlex isn't the only Oulton Park instructor to celebrate success in October. RaceMaster and BMW Master regulars Adam Morgan and Jayde Kruger tasted champagne at the recent British Touring Car Championship finals meeting at Brands Hatch. Jayde won the MSA Formula Ford title, whilst Adam took his maiden BTCC race victory.

Adam said: "I am chuffed to bits with everything, a top ten finish in the Championship and a podium or two was our aim, so an outright win has just been the icing on the cake, I couldn't have asked for more.  The car is just sensational and next year can't come soon enough for us all."
