Oulton Park rally instructor scores podium at new event

Monday, September 09 2019

We pride ourselves on the quality and experience of our instructors here at Oulton Park - and this weekend one of them proved he's top of the crop!

Rally experience instructor Alex Allingham made history when he stepped onto the podium at a brand new rally that took place on closed public roads around Ledbury in Herefordshire.

Allingham - a three-time Welsh Rally Champion - switched from his traditional 4-wheel-drive Subaru Impreza to a rear-wheel-drive Ford Escort Mk2 to contest the first running of the Three Shires Rally. 

Seeded at car 20 in the running order, Allingham and co-driver Ross Weir put in a spirited drive, entertaining spectators with plenty of sideways action and overhauling the leader board and take third place overall.

With an entry list packed full of WRC and R5 machinery, including the only Hyundai i20 WRC in private hands in the UK, Alex put his rear-wheel-drive experience gained on the rally stage at Oulton Park to good use.

Well done Alex, great performance!
