Reigning Hankook MSA Northern Ireland Rally Champion Stuart Biggerstaff is gearing up for this weekend’s Donnelly Group Circuit of Ireland Rally.

The Kinallen man, who currently lies eighth in the series standings, is hoping to make up for lost ground. Engine failure at round one of the championship forced him to retire from second overall, throwing him immediately on to the back foot at the start of the season.

He returned to action at round two where he finished fourth overall. The result got his 2011 Championship campaign off the mark, and now he is looking to increase his points tally this weekend.

To help him along the way, Biggerstaff has secured two new sponsors ahead of this weekend’s Easter event, with Solo Petroleum and JGD Recycling joining the team. With their backing, together with long-time sponsors Feckin’ Irish Whiskey and Millers Oils, Biggerstaff is ready to tackle the world famous event.

“When I entered the Circuit of Ireland last year, it was my first event on closed roads and my first with pace notes,” Biggerstaff said. “It took me a while to settle in so I’m looking forward to this year’s event now that I have a bit more experience behind me.”

“It’s great to have new sponsors on board as well,” he continued. “Thanks must go to Solo Petroleum and JGD Recycling for supporting me, as well as my other sponsors. The car’s livery has been updated and hopefully the spectators will like the new look!”

The Circuit of Ireland Rally starts on Saturday afternoon, with competitors tackling 16 stages during two days of tough competition. The winner will be crowned late on Sunday afternoon in Armagh.
