The Wales Rally was completed last weekend by Team Hippo comprising of Director Tom Preston and Co-Driver Jamie Forrest. With coverage all over nationwide TV stations and radio stations as well as record attendances for the event over a damp weekend, the pressure to perform was on.
For only the second time the pair took their place in the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo and managed to show their true skill and team work in a gruelling performance over 369 road miles and 70 stage miles.
The team have plenty to boast coming out of the event after setting 2 overall fastest times over the 2 day event and a finish of 3rd overall. Within their class they also managed a very high 2nd place finish.
Tom and Jamie will be taking part in the Grizedale stages on Saturday the 30th in the hope of keeping up their form and performing well again in their next event.
