SPAL Automotive is supporting local talent through the sponsorship of the 2017 British Junior Rally Championship winner Rob Wilson.
The new F1000 season starts on 4th March and with preparations well in hand, the rising star gave this promising progress report on his 2018 bid for glory:
“We conducted the first test in the new car last weekend. We were able to make some changes to the car and made a significant step forward. It is certainly more competitive than the car I used for the class win last year.”
As well as providing funding, SPAL will be giving some tops tips on engine cooling fans – such a vital component to ensure the young driver gets the best speed and performance out the car while navigating the straights and deceptive turns of the course.
As Rob confirms: “Having the right cooling is important as the car needs to have as much power as possible to enable us to succeed in our ambition.”
Best of luck to Rob and his co-pilot during the first round, the Roskirk Stages, at 3 Sisters, Wigan.
