Fossey heads home to Jersey Rally
11 Oct 2018
Driving a Peugeot Sport UK 208 R2, 20-year-old Ed Fossey will return home to contest the Roberts Garage Ltd Jersey Rally next weekend (12-13 October). The MSA Asphalt Rally Championship title holder heads to the island with his exciting Yokohama Peugeot 208 R2 – a car that won him the R2 category with a round to spare. With the title in the bag, Fossey is eager to return to his rallying homeland.
“After competing in Belgium, Ireland and the UK this year, I have been itching to go and do one event in particular and that has been and always will be the Jersey Rally,” enthused Fossey.
There is a strong rallying history in the Fossey household, with Ed being a third generation competitor. Delving deeper it was clear as to why the Island classic is a permanent fixture on the calendar in the family household.
“I don’t think I have missed a single rally since I have been born! The event is very special to me and has everything a rally should. The whole build-up and atmosphere on the stages is amazing and the compact route with high stage mileage makes it a real challenge. The organsiers do a really great job and the residents are fantastic in allowing this great event for the island to happen. And the best thing is, there isn’t much in the way of traveling – and I get to sleep in my own bed at night!”
