A tough event was experienced by the Armed Forces Rally Team at the
Somerset Stages Rally – The South West’s Biggest National B Forest Stage Rally – Saturday 8th April 2017-Organised by Burnham-on-Sea & Minehead Motor Clubs.
In their own words …
A exciting day on the Somerset Stages Rally for the Wolfpack today has concluded. In what has been a taxing day for the crews with fast stages and some tricky navigation between stages unfortunately only 3 crews made it to the finish; all the crews are Ok and a little panel beating will see us back for the Pirelli. The stars of the day however were the Service Crew who have simply been outstanding; in true F1 style they were able to fit the Wolfpack with a
new set of tarmac tyres ready for the Porlock Hill stage and then return them all to gravel tyres on completion, this was completed in 20mins! Brilliant.
Our thanks go out to the organisers, Marshall’s and Rescue and Recovery crews who have made this event such a cracking day.
