Another new name for this season is Billy Grew, who starts his motorsport career with the Junior Rally Championship. Billy have been patiently waiting for his chance to start rallying after only turning 14 just before the start of the season. He has managed to complete all of the requirements to get his rally license and is now ready to go in round 1 on 19th March at Anglesey.
Billy will also be eligible for both the Rookie Cup and the Lewis Reporting Pre ’03 trophy as he is using a Micra, giving him several opportunities to take home silverware at every event he enters.
Billy said “Having met some of the Juniors at the 2016 F1000 practice event and whilst spectating at Anglesey last November – I was determined to enter the 2017 championship. Having just turned 14 at the beginning of March, it has all been quite a rush to get ready for next weekend. As this year is my first year in motorsport, my aim for Lee Holland Memorial Stages is to finish with no damage to my car and to get round cleanly. I am really looking forward to meeting the other Juniors drivers and by the end of the season I would like to be competing for the Pre ’03 trophy. Thank you to my sponsors ‘Jaspers Bakeries’ and ‘Chase Plumbing Supplies for sponsoring me and helping me along in my first rallying season. Good luck to all competitors on Sunday”.
