Another rally victory for Sara Williams
You may remember back in the February issue of Banzai that we caught five minutes with up-and-coming young female rally driver Sara Williams hot off the back of her first successful international event at the Wales Rally GB.
Well, there’s more good news from the #1 British female rally driver this month, as we’ve learnt that her and co-driver Patrick Walsh have recently won the Port Talbot Motor Club Red Dragon Rally outright – Sara’s third overall rally win!
The pair steered Sara’s trusty Hawkeye Impreza across the 36 stage miles faultlessly, in less than ideal weather conditions, to beat the closest competition by a considerable 1 minute 21 seconds.
Sara famously was the first female rally driver to claim an outright win in 30 years back in 2013, and it looks like there’s plenty more to come.
To top the day off nicely, the duo clinched the Nick Bradbury Award for the fastest final stage time. Nice work!
