Dmack’s Fredrik Ahlin and co-driver Torstein Eriksen won a sixth consecutive MSA British Rally Championship victory at Carlisle’s Pirelli International Rally. The team maintained their winning run in 2017 by taking a 39.4-second victory over Osian Pryce and Dale Furniss, who made it a Dmack one-two. The result was a debut success for Dmack’s new medium GH43 compound DMG+22 gravel tyre. Four different drivers registered stage wins through the tough Kielder forest complex, all using Dmack tyres. Pirelli runners were successful in the Cadet class for young drivers, taking the top two places.
Three drivers from the 2016 Drive Dmack Fiesta Trophy will tackle at least two rounds of the FIA World Rally Championship WRC 2 series this year. The one-make Dmack championship has offered prize drives for three years – what Dmack says is the biggest prize in world rallying. The brand adds that the Trophy has “effectively become the Junior WRC for 2017”.
Osian Pryce and Dale Furniss have won the Drive Dmack Fiesta Trophy following a thrilling final round in Spain. The Welsh pairing narrowly held off a gutsy late challenge from Max Vatanen. The championship was, for the third time in as many years, in the balance until the very last stage of the season finale. The trophy, sponsored by tyre brand Dmack, aims to provide a training ground for budding world rally stars.
