Chris Davies

Chris started first experience in the sport was at 12 years of age, when he went with his father to the ‘Peter Lloyd Stages ‘ at Pembrey, who was servicing for several cars on the event. Over the next 4years Chris continued going to most Welsh Tarmac Events helping out, just cleaning car Windscreens and learning our sport from this angle. But what he really wanted to do was compete himself.

In 2007 Chris, Just 6 days after his 16th Birthday competed on his first event the ‘John Price Rallying Tour of Epynt’ with his father Karl Davies in his Subaru Impreza. Chris now backed by ‘Carter and Carter Group PLC had entered the ‘BTRDA Asphalt Rally Championship’ alongside his Father and competed on 5 rounds of the Series. Chris going into the last round had a fighting chance at Winning his Class and 2nd O/A in the Championship, But a off on SS1 of the Cheviot Rally so him take 2nd in Class and 4th O/A. Although Chris did win the Wessex Ropes Junior Award that year.

As the 2008 season started Chris was asked to Co-drive for Jon Sparks in his Mitsubishi Evo7 , in the Evo Challenge and MSA National Gravel Championship (ANCRO). Jon and Chris had a fantastic season together and Chris was awarded the MSA National Gravel Junior Title for that year.  2008 also saw Chris take a step into the organising world with the start of the ‘Epynt Challenge’.  The Epynt Challenge was a massive Success bringing in over 140 competitors in its 1st year.

2009 brought a very busy year and a mix of results over the 32 events Chris competed on. Chris in this year competed in the: British Rally Championship, ANCRO/Evo Challenge,  BTRDA, Welsh National and Clubman Forest Championships and the Epynt Challenge. Sitting with: Sara Williams(Subaru Impreza), Jon Sparks (Mitsubishi Evo7), Phil Brown(Subaru Impreza), Peter Stephenson(MG S2000), Pat Jerome(Mitsubishi Evo),  Gary Kenna (Subaru Impreza), Nick Everard(Suzuki Swift) and Sean Bannister (Citroen C2 S1600).

2010 started off with a fantastic result with Owen Murphy on the Malcolm Wilson winning Group N. After that Chris started his REIS MSA National Asphalt Rally Championship Campaign with Roger Donnan in the S1600 Puma, Chris and Roger have won their class with maximum scores across the board. Chris is competing in the BTRDA Rally Championship, as well as other selected gravel events with Gary Kenna in his Ex-Tommi Makinen Subaru S9 WRC.  The Trackrod Rally also saw Chris competing in a Mitsubishi Evo10 alongside PWRC Driver Peter Horsey. But by far Chris’s biggest challenge of the year so far has been competing on the Zimbabwe International Rally with Kenya born Quentin Mitchell in his Subaru N2010, finishing 3rd O/A. This fantastic result setting them up for the 2011 season.

With only the Wales Rally GB and the Guru Nannka Rally(Kenya) left for this Season, Chris is looking ahead to 2011 where he will be competing in the African Rally Championship and hopefully the British Rally Championship, BTRDA and Welsh National Forest Championship. Once again Chris will also be at the helm of the 2011 Epynt Challenge, now entering its 4th year.
