Events

A few of the highlights that have involved Melvyn Evans Motorsport & their customers during 2018.

Wexford Stages 2018
Meirion Evans and Jonathan Jackson took the newly acquired MEM Hyundai I20 R5 car to Ireland and came away 2nd o/a with a career best finish. The car ran faultlessly.

 

 

Old Forge Garage Mewla Rally
Melvyn Evans co-driven by Mark Glennerster gave the new Melvyn Evans Motorsport Hyundai i20 R5 its first competitive run on the Mewla Rally. The rally proved particularly treacherous, with driving wind and raid for the entire length of the event, possibly the worst conditions the Mewla has ever had in its 40 year history. As well as the conditions the MEM crew had to fight several quick crews in WRC cars over the ranges. At the end of the day, Melvyn and Mark finished 4th overall, bagged well needed championship points and the car ran faultlessly.

Carryduff Forklift Downs Rally 2018 
Melvyn Evans wheels out one of the MEM Ford Fiesta WRC cars for the first time and competes in the Down Rally held over the lanes of N. Ireland. The rally was used to get a feel for the car and the pace was good until brake problems on Stage 8 lost the crew time. They bounced back to claim 8th o/a.

 

Meirion Evans and Jonathan Jackson used a Melvyn Evans prepared Ford Fiesta R5+ to take their best ever career finish of 5th o/a. A superb drive saw tehm post top 6 times on several stages with the car running faultlessly.
