 Pupils from Penglais Comprehensive school in Aberystwyth joined Go Motorsport to gain first hand experience of rallying during their ‘activities week’ at the end of the summer term.

The school already has an active rally club – focusing primarily on road rallying – run by engineering and design & technology teachers Fiona Balchin (a Teifi Valley Motor Club member) and Garwyn Davies. Having persuaded the Bennett- Evans family to allow their Sweet Lamb rally complex to be used, Balchin then found seven rally drivers to bring their cars along and let the students experience rallying for real.

The 20 pupils were initially shown the differences between rally cars and ordinary vehicles by Lampeter Motor Club’s Chris Palmer, before being given a route to plot. The pupils also had the opportunity to navigate for the drivers, who then selected the top performer; Sertac Ozemir was declared the overall winner.

Go Motorsport will be returning to the school’s rally club in the autumn to give an insight into co-drivers’ roles on Wales Rally GB.
