EVANS ALMIGHTY - March Issue 186 Now On Sale!
The stars aligned for Pacenotes readers this month! We always planned to run a special Welsh edition in March...and just before we went to print with it, Welshman Elfyn Evans moved to the top of the World Rally Championship tables. You can't have much better timing than that!
Elfyn graces the cover of this special Welsh themed issue that takes a look at some of the quickest competitors, successful businesses, best events and most challenging stages that the country has to offer.
Inside we've got a special feature about the famous Sweet Lamb stage with Jon Bennett Evans - the owner of the Sweet Lamb complex - sharing some iconic moments from the stage’s distinguished history.
We also take a look at both David Llewellin's and Nicky Grist's successes with Toyota, while Martin Holmes turns back the clock to look at the history of the Welsh International Rally, which eventually became known as Wales Rally GB.
There's a special report on the opening round of the Pirelli Welsh Rally Championship, Tom Llewellin is 'In the Spotlight' plus there's a big interview with Meirion Evans of Melvyn Evans Motorsport.
Our very own Welsh columnist, Becs Williams, give us her views on Elfyn Evans' latest successes and a special Welsh edition wouldn't be complete without Darrian - the only car manufacturer in Wales. Other businesses profiled include GroupB Motorsport, Wales Motorsport Fabrication and a special feature on West Wales Rally Spares who are celebrating an impressive 30 years in business.
But don't think this edition is all about Wales! We've got our usual mix of reports from across the UK, Ireland and beyond that include Rally Sweden, Galway, Cambrian, the Pacenotes sponsored Kirkistown Stages, Jack Frost, Willie Loughman, Donegal Mini Stages and the Rallysport Association's latest events.
John Fife provides the news from Scotland and Sammy Hamill has his ear to the ground for all things Irish rallying. Plus we have a new competitor columnist with Northern Ireland's Jason Dickson!
This really is an edition you won't want to miss!
