The Fiesta Sporting Trophy category within the Vantage Aluminium NZRC has received a boost with the entries of 23-year-old Patrick Malley and 18- year-old Northlander Ben Jagger.
Malley campaigned a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9 in last season’s championship, but has been attracted to the Fiesta Sporting Trophy by the chance to compete for the prize of an entry into the Fiesta Sporting Trophy International Shootout in England at the end of the year.
Malley will once again campaign with the experienced Raymond “Crunch” Bennett in the navigator’s seat. Jagger and navigator Ben Hawkins will rally the car Kayne Barrie drove to finish second in last season’s series. Jagger competed in club rallies last season with a Suzuki Swift and took a class win on the Hawkes Bay Rally.
