Military Drivers Tackle Pirelli Rally In Cumbria

The event is the second round of the Armed Forces Rally Championship.

Military drivers have been showing their speed at the Armed Forces Rally Championship.

Held in Cumbria, the Pirelli Rally was the second stage of the military competition after an earlier event in Bovington.

The duo of Barry Connolly and Matt Gudgeon did not appear in the first stage but took the plaudits in Cumbria with 10 points.

Connolly is looking to improve team morale during the championship.

He said: "We are just trying to bond as a group. It felt like it really clicked."

"The times seemed to reflect that too."

The next event is in Scotland on 18 May.
