Newby Storms To Podium At Brean

After a top six placing where he was competing in the snow and ice of the Jack Frost Rally at Croft last weekend, Carnforth teenager Arron Newby continued his great form with another superb drive to take a brilliant third place overall on this weekend's K&R Mitsubishi Stages held at Brean Leisure Park near Weston-Super-Mare.

Back at the wheel of the Pirelli-sponsored and TEG Sport-prepared Subaru Impreza along with Windermere co-driver Gary Tomlinson, 18-year-old Newby was optimistically hoping to add to the successive hat-trick of outright victories on his first three rallies in the car last year, but with a very strong local contingent in the quality field, he knew it was going to be a tough challenge.

Saturday saw a wet start where young Azz managed to hold second overall in the early stages as the powerful World Rally Cars struggled for grip before it started to dry out and after the day's final stage, his considerable talent had placed him fourth overall from his lowly seeding of 27.

Sunday dawned dry and with conditions not as well suited to the lesser-powered Subaru, Newby hung in and maintained his top four placing but his prayers were answered when, with two stages remaining, the heavens opened and he responded by setting a fastest and second fastest time to clinch third spot just five seconds behind the experienced Rob Swann and less than half a minute off winner Steve Furzeland.

Arron Newby: "The weather conditions were totally different to last week at Croft and with such a strong local entry who all knew the stages well; it really was going to be difficult. Saturday started off OK and we hung in there to end the day fourth which I was pleased with but with Sunday forecast dry, I knew I'd have my work cut out to maintain that. When it rained, it evened things up a bit and allowed us to claw some time back so I'm pleased with third overall and less than 30 seconds off winning. Thanks to Gary, the whole TEG Sport team and of course Pirelli as the tyres were brilliant as always."

Stuart Newby, TEG Sport Team Owner: "Azz has yet again showed his pace and maturity and done us all proud once again. This is one of the toughest events he's done in the Subaru and the whole point in entering was to test him against some quality opposition and he's responded magnificently. We were happy to see the rain with a couple of stages to go as we knew the Pirelli RE9 was mega in the wet and so it proved so third place overall is a fantastic result."
