Dave Hopwood & Paul Grattidge Ready For The Mull Rally 2023

Dave Hopwood & Paul Grattidge will be competing on this years Mull Rally in Dave’s ‘Classic Fords For Sale’ Backed MK2 Ford Escort YB Cosworth Rally Car…

After a relatively clean run on the 2022 event which saw the pair home in a fantastic 16th place overall – from over 150 starters – they are hoping for another great result on this years event which takes place on the Isle Of Mull (situated off the west coast of Scotland) on the 13-15 October 2023.

Dave said “Last year was a bit of a learning curve having upgraded to a Sadev gearbox shortly before the event which took a bit of getting used to and we had a couple of issues on the Saturday daytime stages with fuel-surging on Griburn and a bit of a scare with a prop centre bearing but everything held together for a great finish after the Saturday night stages.”

Having first competed on the island in back in 2001 the Escort has had many evolutions to date – not too mention a few scrapes here and there – but the pair can’t wait to get back up to the island for another full on attack on the single track tarmac roads in October!

We wish them all the best and look forward to following their progress on the event at https://mullrally.org.
