Mid Wales Stages next for the MMS AE86

On the back of the successful run in the Red Kite Stages coupled with the opportunity to race on some of the most famous rally stages in the world, MMS have entered their Toyota Corolla AE86 with Driver William Midgley reunited with Navigator Jonathan Driver.

The car is ready and entry accepted so Pace Notes due tomorrow and let the studying begin. Both Driver and Navigator are excited about racing together again and taking on the challenge of stages such as Pikes Peak, Hafren and Sweet Lamb.

Here’s a great shot of the car from brilliant Photographer Stephen Tait. Visit his site and see what we mean! http://taitimages.com/motorsports.html

Red Kite Rally success for the Corolla AE86 on debut

Midgley Motor Sport ventured into new territory (in recent times at least) to compete in Wales in the Red Kite Rally, being the 1st round of the 2015 RAC Championship.

Driver Will Midgley and Navigator Geoff Maybank suffered several scares and near misses in the treacherous snow and icy conditions,  however endured and from a starting position of 73, made up 30 places to finish 43rd overall and won class BE1.

This was a fantastic achievement on first attempt at this rally and again considering conditions. Below is a fantastic picture by Thibault Lefebvre showing the ‘drifting’ on icy corners – look at where both driver and navigator are looking!
