Tommi Meadows was hoping to bounce back from a disappointing first rally of the Junior 1000 Championship at Anglesey last weekend.

A mistake at the first event of the season cost him and co-driver Ian Oakey a podium position, but he was in a positive frame of mind as the crew headed for Anglesey for round two.

A promising first stage left the crew once again battling for a place on the podium in this competitive championship.

However, a broken driveshaft on stage two of the eight-stage event led to a very disappointing and premature end for the pair.

Although unable to continue in the main rally and score championship points, the 15-year-old managed to get some valuable mileage under his belt on the last few stages thanks to the support from his very helpful service crew.

“It’s been a weekend I want to forget if I’m honest,” commented a disheartened Meadows,

“I must thank my dad, Gordon from Proflex and Mick from A-Frame for fixing the car so that I could get some more experience in the last few stages.

“I would also like to thank Cybox Exhausts and TAROX Brakes for their appreciated support, hopefully I will be able to get a much needed finish on my next rally!”
