For our final gallery by our GT photographer from the 2016 Mid Wales Stages Rally we move away from the MSA British Rally Championship and take a look at the other competitions on the event.
Most rallies have more than one championship racing in them and the 39th running of the Mid Wales Stages was no different. The Bowler Motorsport Defender Challenge was joined by the FMP Rally Challenge, the Pirelli MSA Welsh Stage Rally Championship, the Jelf Motorsport Welsh Clubman’s Forest Championship and four championships from the Association of North Western Car Clubs.
These are the events which bring out the different cars like the Mk.1 and Mk.2 Ford Escorts, the Peugeot 205s and the older Subaru models. Sometimes you can be surprised though, like on the Mid Wales Stages where R5 Fiestas and Mitsubishi Mirages turned up in the running order.
The previous galleries from the Mid Wales Stages Rally can be found in our archive. The top class of the BRC have their own gallery with other BRC entrants in a second. You can also view other galleries from our series of challenges to Nick Smith, where he goes to an event as a spectator to see what he can get. If you have an idea for a challenge for Nick, contact us using the contact form.
