New car, new co-driver for Brendo in Queensland

Brendo will have a new co-driver alongside him when he competes in Rally Queensland this weekend.

{mosimage}With regular co-driver, Rhianon competing with Emma Gilmour and the MotorImage Rally Team for the event (as part of the six round Asia Pacific Rally Championship), experienced Queensland co-driver, Glen Weston, will call the notes for Brendo.

Whilst admitting it will be strange to have someone new sitting beside him, Brendo is looking forward to the rally and is confident he and Glen can produce a good result.  The pair will be contesting the Pirelli Star Driver component of the event which runs in conjunction with the Asia Pacific Rally Championship.  

The top two placegetters in the Pirelli Star Driver competition will have the opportunity to compete for the Asia Pacific title at Australia’s round of the World Rally Championship, Repco Rally Australia, in September.  The winner of the Asia Pacific title then wins a fully-funded entry in six rounds of the 2010 Production World Rally Championship.

Brendo has entered his newly purchased Subaru WRX STi for the event.  He has previously rallied the left hand drive car when it was owned by Les Walkden, and after competing in the car in this year’s Rally Tasmania, Brendo made the decision to purchase the Subaru.

“I can’t wait to get on the gravel stages in the car again after testing only weeks ago. The last time I rallied in Queensland we got an awesome result so I’m extremely excited to be back behind the wheel pushing for the Pirelli Star Driver competition.”

“Glen and I will have the opportunity to do some testing together before the event and fine tune our pace notes, and I am sure we will work well together.  Glen knows the Queensland roads really well and is a very experienced co-driver, so I am looking forward to having him on board for the rally.”

Rally Queensland  gets underway this Friday, May 8.
