Swinscoe is in third
RALLY: Withnell’s Paula Swinscoe is up to third in the co-driver standings for this year’s MSA Asphalt Rally Championship after helping driver Matt Beebe to a creditable 15th place at the ALMC Stages Rally in Ireland.
Beebe and Swinscoe fought their way up from 23rd in their MG ZR, taking sixth place in class.
That left the driver in fourth place in this year’s standings after five of the nine rounds of the MSA Asphalt Rally Championship, while Swinscoe climbed eight places to third in the co-driver standings.
There was further disappointment for John Stone, though, with the Blackburn businessman thwarted once more in his bid to climb the rankings.
Stone never made it to the start of the first stage after turbo in his Skoda Fabia WRC expired on the road section – two years after an early turbo problem had forced him out of the same event. He has now picked up points from only one of this year’s five events so far and sits joint 20th in the championship.
