Round 1, The Tour of Epynt.
The start of the 2014 season with Damian going for a 5th straight MSA Asphalt Championship driver’s championship – here we go!!!
Having finished 2nd overall on this event for the last 3 years and it being the only national rally on Epynt that hasn’t been won by a Get Connected car, Damian was very determined to get the championship off to the best possible start with an overall win and maximum points. After a successful partnership at the end of 2013, Elliott Edmondson has committed to a full season with the Get Connected/Accident Advice Solicitors team so the Milton Keynes based co-driver will be filling the left hand seat on every event during 2014.
A brave tyre choice and a big push on the opening 3 mile stage in damp, slippery conditions paid dividends, the Focus WRC stopping the clocks 7s faster than Peter Lloyd/Neil James and 8s faster than Steve Simpson/Patrick Walsh. This first stage was to prove decisive by the end of the rally… Due to a bad accident on stage 2 behind the leading crews, stage 4 was lost as rescue teams still worked on the injured crew, stage 5 saw both Steve Simpson and Damian catch the course opening car even though it started the stage 5 minutes in front of the competing cars – the gap was extended to 8 minutes for the final 2 stages.
Peter Lloyd and Damian started the final 15 mile stage tied on overall time, Damian still leading due to the tie-break rule of fastest on the first stage. A massive effort from both drivers saw Peter taking 12 mins 14s to complete the stage, but Damian just pipped him with a time of 12 mins 13s to win the rally by just 1s, both drivers saying it was the fastest they had ever driven across the military range. Steve Simpson was only 4s behind Peter in 3rd overall, a close battle all day.
For the first time in 5 years the Focus WRC goes to Round 2, The Manx National Rally at the beginning of May, leading the championship. The Manx National is now the only round of the championship that Damian hasn’t won overall, 3rd overall 3 times in the last 4 years, will 2014 bring the desired win?
