Spencer Sport announces two Mitsubishi R5’s of Mid Wales Stages and full season for Cave

by Vince Pettit

Spencer Sport will run three cars for the 2016 MSA British Rally Championship season opening event at the Mid Wales Stages.

Leading the line up is Osian Pryce and Jamie Jukes who will be driving two Mitsubishi Mirage R5’s in the National Cup, while Tom Cave will take on the full season in a Ford Fiesta R5 Evo.

“I am really pleased to be a part of the BRC once again and to be getting behind the wheel of the Mirage,” said Pryce. “The car showed promise on the Cambrian Rally last year, and the times were good against other R5 entries despite it being slightly underpowered. The team has worked really hard and I want to repay them and take the fight to the Skodas, Fords, Peugeots and the like on the stages.

“There is a real buzz and excitement about the series again, and I can’t wait to line up on the Mid Wales, which is so close to home. There is no expectation from our side; we want to show the potential of the car and enjoy the experience.”

“For the past few months, we have been working hard behind the scenes to bring a professionally-run and high-profile team to the British Rally Championship,” explained Spencer Sport team manager Charlie Jukes.

“To have an all-Welsh line-up is great, and to have the principality represented on the Mid Wales against international opposition is very exciting. I have competed in the BRC previously and it has always attracted the best drivers, and now it has a great TV package the interest in rallying is certainly on the up. To pitch the Mirage against the competition is really exciting, and the BRC is where we want to prove its potential.”
