The rapid duo lost ground in the BTRDA Championship due to a ball joint failure causing a accident on one event, and missed another round due to helping Nigel Worswick on rally Barbados.

The Westgate Tyres/Loss Insurance, Millington-powered Escort then needed a good finish on the Nicky Grist Rally however, a puncture put paid to that.

The gruelling series resumes after the summer break, with two rounds to go – Woodpecker this weekend, September 3 and the Trackrod Forest Stages rally from October 1.

Burton has attracted two new sponsors in the interim in Jon Wright and son’s Building and Andy Kay sculptures.
