Rally champions move to historics

Former British Rally champions David Higgins and Gwyndaf Evans will both compete in historic rallying this season in Ford Escorts.

Higgins has confirmed plans to run in six rounds of the Dunlop/Gambia MSA British Historic Rally Championship in a car from Mark Solloway’s team, while Evans contested the season-opening Bulldog Rally on March 28 in a Viking Motorsport Mk2 Escort.

The Viking team has been created by 2003 World champion co-driver Phil Mills. “Group 4 Escorts have been a passion of mine for a long time,” said Mills. “It’s a very healthy market, both in the UK and outside.”
