Threshfield Toyota Corolla Teams head for Grizedale Stages

Midgley Motor Sport and Chris and James Slater have both entered their  Toyota Corolla AE86’s into this weekend’s Grizedale Stages.  Based in Coniston in the beautiful Lake District, the rally takes includes 40 stage miles with a mammoth last stage of 17 miles, and all easily accessible from a spectators perspective.  The first car is away at 10:30 on Saturday the 30th of November.

The MMS car is driven of course by Will Midgley with the very experienced Co-driver Geoff Maybank, on what will be their first attempt at this rally.

Chris and James (below) won their class in the Corolla a couple of years ago, the format then being a number of sections in the dark on Saturday night, followed by all day Sunday. They return now to a single day event, but none less challenging in the excellent Grizedale stages coupled with the wintry weather conditions.

There is also a good mixed field of old and new in Class 2 (1600 cc) with newer Fiesta R2’s racing against the Corolla’s, Lotus Sunbeams and good friends Malcolm Davey and Paul Slingsby in a Ford Escort Mark 1.  Mix in a few WRC cars and a Group B MG Metro 6R4 and you’ve got a great field.
