Derek Slack Motors Sponsor Historic Road Rally Car

Derek Slack Motors are very proud to sponsor the Skoda Felicia rally car of Alan Bland from Bellingham, Northumberland who contacted us recently looking for a Skoda dealer to support him, he completed the 2018 Mull Targa Rally on Saturday the 13th October.

Although Alan (67) has been involved in rallying since he was 19, and competed in the British Rally Championship in the 70s, he only got back into rallying last year.

The Isle of Mull Targa road rally is an event restricted to road cars and road tyres and Alan saw an opportunity to get involved with his Skoda Felicia 2000 1.3 model.

Hexham's MP Guy Opperman presented Alan with a Community Champion Award for his achivements in last year's Mull Rally.

The track was mainly made up of tarmac, forestry commission land and farm tracks. Alan was thrilled to have competed again and to have raised money for the Great North Air Ambulance through sponsorship and donations.

You can donate at Alan's justgiving.com page.
