The 2018 BTRDA Rally Series championship season kicked off once again with the Cambrian Rally in Llandudno on Saturday. igroup’s Jack Leese took part in the day with his co-driver, Sam Spencer, in the igroup sponsored Peugeot 208 R2.
The Cambrian Rally is one of the most established within the UK, running since 1955. The 45-mile gruelling track is set in the picturesque Conway County forests. It was an early start to the day but the team were in good spirits and joined by several of the igroup staff to show support.
This was Jacks first big rally since passing his driving test last year. Delivering a superb performance, Jack, with co-driver Sam, finished 36th overall and 5th in class in the rally out of 110 entries. More importantly, they finished 3rd in the BTRDA R2 cup scooping a good amount of points for the first round of the championship.
