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!
