The now infamous "Pooma" returned to competitive action at the Neil Howard Stages Rally on the 4th November 2018 to open RACE Rallysport's 2018/2019 Campaign at Round One of the MSN Circuit Rally Championship.
After an extensive off season rebuild including a complete re-wire and new dash display system, with Ryan Connolly driving and Craig Scoffings in the Navigator's seat, the pair admitted to starting tentatively to ensure all was well with the Honda F20 Powered RWD steed before posting some very respectable stage times as the day progressed in Class C.
Seeded 37th to begin the rally, the crew finished the event 25th overall and 4th in class, narrowly missing out on their and the car's debut podium finish.
The Pooma is back on event on the 18th November 2018 at RACE's home and favourite circuit, Cadwell Park. Will that elusive podium finally be achieved? We hope so and will report back after the event!...
