Classicwise Associates LTD were proud to support two local drivers on their first rally in this years “Dukeries rally” on June 8th 2013. Driving there race prepared Peugeot 205 weighing just 800kg and propelled by a 230BHP 2.0 Peugeot 206 GTI it is obvious it wasnt for the faint hearted. Overall they finished 12th in there class and 78th out of all classes. Which for their first rally is very impressive – Normally drives set out to only finish their first rally but to also be competitive is something to really be proud of!
The above pictures were taken on the treacherous “Sherwood Pines” stages where all cars are especially put to the test! The little 205 did suffer from some “weight shedding” while on the final stage when the exhaust let go but it wasn’t bad enough to warrant retirement!
Congratulations to both the driver Simon Szubert and Co-driver Andy Wells on finishing! Classicwise look forward to supporting you both further in the future.
