Pink Pig Flys Again

The 1.5day, 174 mile rally is the first in two years for the pairing in there Rallypac sponsored Group N Suzuki Swift GTi.

'It seems along time since driving a rally car competitively, I hope I can remember how to drive fast,' admitted Andy earlier this week. 'I have to admit it's a big shame I have not been able to compete in last couple of years but business commitments have kept me busy. I think it'll take a few stages to get back into the rhythm of things, but it will be fantastic to just have fun in the Pink Pig again. (The Pink Pig is the name given to the car because of the bright pink livery)
Andy and Malcolm Kirk will start at number 237 with 8 in there B9 class.

The event itself takes place next week, from Thursday 28th to Saturday 30th July, and will once again bring the cream of British and Irish rallying talent to the island as it features as a high profile round of several major championships.
