Turbo trouble for Tindall

A blown turbo put paid to Ewan Tindall’s class-leading drive on the Galloway Hills Rally.
The 21-year-old John Easson Award winner looked set for another superb result on the event, the penultimate round of the Scottish Championship, when disaster struck on stage five.
“The day was going very smoothly, and despite a puncture on the second stage, we were setting some competitive times against the latest Rally 4 cars,” explained Ewan, who was co-driven by Andrew Roughead.
“But the turbo suddenly failed on the fifth stage, and we had no choice but to retire at the end of the test to save any further damage to the car.
“It was gutting end to the rally, and was really hard to take as we were leading the SRC Juniors and lying second in class.
“As always, I’d like to thank my dad Lee, brother Max and Simon Hewitt for their efforts over the weekend, and to our supporters, the 2300 Club, Team Valley MOT, Duo Media, Royal Purple, MRF Motorsport Tyres UK and Rallytech.
