Brendan just misses out on Drive DMACK Fiesta Trophy title

PDFPrintE-mail

After two days of fitness and media tests, and driving under the scrutiny of 2015 World Rally Championship driver, Elfyn Evans, Brendan Reeves has finished a close second in the Drive DMACK Fiesta Trophy shootout in the UK.


Brendan earned a place at the prestigious shootout after his brilliant second place in the Drive DMACK Fiesta Trophy at Rally Spain, a round of the World Rally Championship, in October. He, along with nine other drivers (all from Europe), were at the shootout to compete for a fully funded drive in an M-Sport-prepared Ford Fiesta R2T in one round of the 2016 World Rally Championship. 

The lucrative prize was awarded to 21 year old Jon Armstrong from Northern Ireland, with the judges, M-Sport managing director, Malcolm Wilson, and DMACK Tyres boss, Dick Cormack, noting how close Brendan came to taking the title.

“It was a great experience and I gave it my all,” Brendan said.  “I’m a bit disappointed not to have won but to finish a close second shows that I gave it my absolute best.

“Congratulations to Jon on his win.”

Brendan doesn’t come away from the shootout empty handed, though. His second placing has secured him some support from DMACK Tyres, which is still be finalised.
