As you may recall, the Scots were well and truly gubbed on the Circuit of Ireland Rally a couple of weeks back so thank goodness for the Weston and Riddick clans. Some honour has been restored.
A quick scan through the results of the weekend’s Somerset Stages Rally (held somewhere down near northern France apparently) reveals a pretty incestuous state of affairs. David Weston and Kirsty Riddick won the event outright in a Subaru Impreza while David’s wee brother Ryan and Mark McCulloch finished 37th overall, and were second in class in their 1400cc Proton Satria.
Completing the family outings were Kirsty’s wee brother and sister, Keith and Mairi Riddick who finished 48th overall and won their class in their MG ZR.
The only ‘fly in the ointment’ is of course Mark McCulloch - no relation (yet!) who is being urged to change his name by deed poll!
Maybe the Westons and Riddicks should host a rallying ‘master class’ for all aspiring rally crews!
