Jeremiah Azu's bid to become European Under-20 100m champion ended in agony face down on the Ryavallen Athletics Stadium in Sweden on Friday night. It was a heartbreaking end to the Cardiff athlete's challenge following his stratospheric rise to prominence this year.
Seb Morris is hoping for a change of future and a late-season British GT Championship results boost, starting at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend. A campaign that promised so much for the 2017 British GT title winning ‘dream team’ of Morris and driving partner Rick Parfitt Jnr has instead been one of frustration, with the Bentley Continental GT3 duo seeing a bid for a second title victory hampered by bad luck and an unfavourable ‘Balance of Performance’. Last time out at Donington Park in June, they raced as hard as possible and extracted every last bit of performance from the impressively handling No.31 machine. Still, though, they had to settle for a seventh place result during the two-hour contest with the ‘BOP’ having a big impact.
Damian Cole is looking to extend his lead in the Protyre Motorsport UK Asphalt Rally Championship when he contests tomorrow’s Carryduff Forklift Down Rally in his Get Connected/Energizer-backed Ford Fiesta WRC. The six time champion has an excellent chance to extend his current 17 point lead in the series, as arch rival and defending champion Jason Pritchard is unable to contest the event, as he’s at home awaiting the arrival of a new addition to the family. Having scored maximum points last time out in Belgium, Cole is on top form and after much work seems to have the car working to his liking. The Abergavenny ace will be co-driven by Paul Spooner. Defending British Rally Champion Matt Edwards is contesting the event in his Ford Fiesta R5 as practice for the forthcoming Ulster Rally. The Llandudno driver will be partnered by Paul Morris.
