Armed Forces Rally Drivers Tackle Trackrod Rally

The course was held in the North York Moors National Park.

The Armed Forces Rally team have competed at this year’s Trackrod Rally in Yorkshire.

The team, in their Land Rover Wolfs, tackled the course set in the Dalby Forest which is part of the North York Moors National Park.

The crews started their journey with four men making their debut in any sort of rally.

The Air Force partnership of Barry Connolly and Matt Gudgeon led the way on day two after the team battled the dark forests at night.

Tyrone Westall and Kit Johanson were dealt a blow when they suffered a broken water pump.

With only a 30-minute period to repair the fault, their event was in the balance.

Thanks to diligent repairs from Chief Mechanic Rob Wood, the pair managed to get back on track but by this point, Connolly and Gudgeon were pulling away in front.

The RAF team took the class win, beating out their military rivals in a timely manner.
