Sixth Place Finish for Tony Jardine and Dominic Tobin at WRGB

Pushing up through the places during the final three stages of the Wales Rally GB, an incredible sixth-place finish for Motor Sport Digital Editor, Dominic Tobin and motorsport media man, Tony Jardine. 

Delighted after his debut, Tobin explained how he enjoyed his first rally experience. 

“It has been such an amazing adventure, I barely looked up for the entire rally but I’ve enjoyed it immensely. From the outside looking in rallying seems so hectic, but in the cockpit, despite the car sliding this way and that way it’s all so controlled, it has been a real eye-opener and an incredible experience.”

Undeterred by the immense downpour over Llandudno during the rally. Spirits were high as the team powered through – despite Tony Jardine claiming he was going to  “take it easy” just the day before.

Regardless of the puncture suffered prior to race day, the team put in fantastic times on three of the most challenging stages. Finally celebrating their result after a two and a half-hour drive to the finish, Tony gave his thoughts on the day:

“He (Tobin) was brilliant. An incredible debut, to come in at this level and read the notes like a pro is nothing short of amazing. I never had to say ‘slow down’ or ‘speed up’, everything was on the money. I’m so pleased, the finish is better than I could have hoped for and the effort of the entire team and sponsors has been incredible.”

We are incredibly proud sponsors and have loved watching the Jardine/Tobin journey thus far. Great job boys!
