Higgins takes Lake District victory

Manxman Mark Higgins warmed up for next weekend’s final rounds of the British Rally Championship with victory in the Lake District on Saturday.

He won the Grizedale Rally alongside co-driver Nicky Grist and it was a Manx 1-2 celebration with local co-driver Rob Fagg alongside David Wright as they secured second place.

It was an emotional day for Grist, co-driver for the late Colin McRae, as he and Higgins steered a 1995 Factory Subaru to victory.

McRae was crowned world champion in 1995.
