Re: Motorsport News Rally Championship

Sorry about this but we have pulled out of The Jack Frost Rally. The engine will require a little more modification before we use it again,(still developing it) and it wont be ready and we dont want to rush Andy. We are still hoping to be in Blackpool for the Northwest Stages. Ron & Alan.
