DUNS rally driver Garry Pearson, the recently crowned British Junior Rally Champion, and Craig Wallace from Kirriemuir collected their Renault Twingo R1 and class winning trophies at The British Rally Championship Awards Dinner in Manchester at the weekend.

As Garry could not be at the Berwick and District Motor Club Dinner which took place on the same night, the club’s prestigious Jim Clark Shield was also presented to Garry in Manchester.

The duo travel to the South of France this week to start preparing for their British Junior Championship Prize Drive which is a fully-funded drive in Rallye du Var, the final round of the French Rally Championship.

They will be competing in a Renault Twingo R2 for the first time on some of the Var region’s notorious twisty roads.

Pearson said: “A finish would be a great result!”
