Hertfordshire Crew are First to Sign Up for 2022

By Uncategorised

Hertfordshire based competitors Martyn Andrews and Steve Greenhill are once again planning an assault on the Independent Paint Supplies Rally Challenge and are the first crew to sign up for 2022. They have retained support from major online oil suppliers Opie Oils for a season of rallying in their B13 Subaru Impreza.

The pair, who also intend to contest rounds of the Pirelli National Welsh Championship, have had some encouraging results since teaming up in 2016, with current form suggesting that a top 10 overall event placing is a realistic prospect. Progress has not been without its issues though; a gearbox that randomly selects 2-wheel drive being the most worrying which has contributed to some heart-stopping moments, resulting in non-starts on the 2021 Cambrian and Rallynuts rallies.

A cautious, but steady increase in pace since the 2016 Woodpecker could be attributed to Martyn’s 26-year break from competitive action, but the 1990 BTRDA Silver Star Champion has now got to grips with four-wheel drive rallying. Martyn commented, ‘Events are super competitive now and everything happens a lot quicker in the Subaru than I remember back in the day with my old Escort.’  ‘We are certainly looking forward to some great rallying in 2022’.
