West Chiltington rally driver Shaun Martin continued his 20-year love affair with the Wales Rally GB National last week, and celebrated by coming 16th overall - his best ever finish.

The event started in Newtown mid Wales on Friday September 14, with Shaun and co-driver Anthony Concannon waved off by Andrew Coe, the mayor and chief executive of International Motor Sports. The team were 18th after a smooth first day but on the second day Shaun’s Subaru Impreza suffered an exhaust problem which saw the car need a full service overnight. And there were further problems with the gears on the final third day, but arriving back in Cardif on Sunday, Shaun and Anthony secured a very credible 16th place.

Shaun and his team have thanked all their sponsors and service crew.
