Matt Edwards returns to the stages for this weekend’s Malcolm Wilson Rally, and joins Jock Armstrong and John Wink in offsetting their carbon footprint.
Triple British Rally Champion Matt Edwards returns to the driving seat in the opening round of the MRF BTRDA rally series, Malcolm Wilson Rally. Driving a Fiat 131 in the historic class, Matt will once again be competing with his carbon emissions being offset by Carbon Positive Motorsport.
Joining Matt on the event will be fellow Carbon Positive Motorsport ambassadors, Jock Armstrong and John Wink, who come to the event match fit after last weekend’s Snowman Rally.
Jock will be competing for the first time in a TEG sport Skodaru, which he believes will provide a significant speed advantage over his Impreza, which still managed to finish 2nd on last weekend’s event! John will be aiming to put behind him some bad luck on the Snowman, with a typically fast charging drive in his Hyundai i20 R5.

Joining the drivers, our co-driver ambassador Cat Lund has a last minute ride in a newly built Alfasud with Dale Glover. This is the first of three rallies in a row for Cat, as she will also be competing on North West Stages with Adam Charlesworth in his Saab turbo, and then co-driving for Dan Taylor in the first round of the Junior Rally Championship.
It's the first outing for the unusual Alfasud.
Paul Glass, director of Carbon Positive Motorsport said, "It's great to see four of our ambassadors out on this year’s event. The BTRDA series is a very popular championship with many iconic events. This year’s Malcolm Wilson rally has a fantastic quality of entry, and we would like to wish all our ambassadors the best of luck. I’m sure that they will raise awareness of our brand and carbon offsetting offer with competitors and spectators alike.
"On last weekend's Snowman Rally, we had a lot of interest in what we were doing, and a lot of people giving us feedback when buying their offsets on how little it costs to make a big difference for the sport. It would be fantastic to see BTRDA competitors and spectators join with us to help make motorsport sustainable."
