Tom sets his sights on local success

Posted: February 6, 2017 2:02 PM

Following a highly successful 2016, when he finished runner-up in the MSA British Rally Championship, Aberdovey driver Tom Cave kicks off his 2017 season with the Llandudno-based Cambrian Rally that takes place on Saturday 11th February. The 25-year old is pleased to be starting his year with one of his most local rallies and consequently, is aiming for nothing less than a top result.

In order to enhance his chances of success, Tom has acquired a WRC Subaru S14 from McKinstry Motorsport to contest the event that hosts the first round of the BTRDA Rally Series. Although having never driven the car before and with his most recent gravel outing that of the Nicky Grist Stages in July, Tom's experience in four-wheel-drive machinery last year is destined to stand him in good stead. Indeed, it's worth noting that Tom took outright victory in the last BTRDA event he contested, the Plains Rally in May.

Starting and finishing on Llandudno Promenade, this year's Cambrian Rally features 42 competitive miles split into six stages in the Clocaenog, Alwen and Penmachno forests, all previously used for the Wales Rally GB.

"I'm passionate about supporting events in Wales, especially this one as it's organised by my car club, so to compete on a rally that takes place only 20 miles from where I live and features such good stages is a perfect way to start the season. It's also an excellent way to promote my sponsors, including our family business, the Trefeddian Hotel.

Tom's season takes on a different look to that of last year's when he got within one place of winning the British title:

"Of course, I did consider continuing in the British Rally Championship this year, as I feel I could have really challenged for the title. But following the cancellation of the opening round - the mid-Wales Stages - it made it a difficult to justify a BRC campaign to many of my sponsors.

"My plans are now to enter a series of selected rallies that will expand my experience and continue to keep me match-fit. As to what events these will be is still to be decided, but I'm really looking forward to what's going to be an interesting season ahead, especially as I'll be kicking things off by driving a WRC car on the Cambrian Rally."

Tom will be joined next weekend by his regular co-driver from 2017, James Morgan from Hirwaun. The car will carry the livery of Tom's sponsors: Trefeddian Hotel, Dmack tyres, Walero and Atech Racing:.

After a few worrying days after loosing so much mileage the Cambrian Rally team are pleased to say the event will run. A big thank you to all the AM's and media people who have helped to make this happen.

Busy day working things out with NRW to try and secure enough mileage to run the event.

We have had to loose Clocaenog East due to extensive harvesting and the lack of commitment from NRW that the roads would be serviceable for motorsport use on the day of the event. As a compromise we have devised a route that offers about 42miles of forestry.

It is proposed to use Alwen, Aberhirnant & LLangower twice which will offer competitors 42 miles of very competitive and challenging miles on some of the fastest stages in the UK.

There is still some work / discussions to be had re who does any pre event work if its required, all that remains is for an agreement to be reached now with R4W.

All hands to the decks as they say, Roadbooks now being printed, Andy Kay started to map the new routes and Michael Patterson will be over next week to do the notes.

Get your entries in still some places available.

See you all in Llandudno on February 11th for the 62nd running of the Cambrian Rally.
