Weir Rallying are celebrating their ‘Historic Class’ win after returning from the Sol Rally, Barbados with their MK2 Escort. Not only did they win their class, but came 15th overall, a fantastic achievement by any standard.

Rob and Ross Weir of HJ Weir Engineering, the Chepstow-based manufacturers of flatwork finishing equipment, are the father and son duo that make up part of the rally team.   

Rob Weir, team principal said “We’re thrilled with the result, finishing beyond our wildest expectations. After a great start, it just got better and better as the stages progressed. The vehicle ran faultlessly, returning with not even a scratch to the paintwork.”

Driven by Alex Allingham who joined Weir Rallying in August 2018, he comes from an accomplished background after previously winning the Welsh Gravel Championship in 2010, 11 and 2014, co-driver Ross Weir of HJ Weir Engineering, alongside Alex, with Rob Weir as team principal.

The event started with the King of the Hill, while disappointed with the initial allocated seeded position, the team made up fantastic time, and placing them in 1st Overall Historic and 25th place overall. Co-driver Ross Weir worked alongside Alex to recce the route, ensuring they were best equipped to tackle the later stages.

Rob Weir mentioned “I want to thank Alex, Ross and the support team behind the scenes that make things possible, together with a special thanks to the event organisers and locals who made us feel so welcome, their support means so much to Weir Rallying”.

Ross Weir kindly brought the Team Weir Rallying car along to CleanEx 2018 for the industry to see.
