JACK Walby continued his fine form in the Gwynnespeed Citroen C2 Rally Challenge, on only his third rally behind the wheel, with 36th overall and 4th C2 home on last weekend's Brawdy Stages.

His strong showing at RAF Brawdy, near Pembroke, now sees him lie third in the C2 challenge after four rounds.

The Pembrokeshire Motor Club rally attracted a capacity entry of 70 crews, including 12 in the C2 class, for the 72 miles of action at the RAF base.

Walby had also had a new co-driver in the shape of the highly experienced Cliff Simmons.

Six long special stages were on offer and, despite a slow start, Walby soon got to grips with the abrasive tarmac and times improved with every stage.

"We couldn't seem to find any rhythm or speed over the first couple of stages," said Walby.

"I really struggled but running on scrubbed tyres doesn't help but we gradually got to grips with it and times improved.

"Thanks to Cliffy for sitting next to me, he gave me a lot of confidence, but we now need to find some extra sponsorship to finish the championship off."
