Latest press release from the Nicky Grist Quinton Stages Rally

Having announced his sponsorship and increased involvement in the organisation of July 9th’s Nicky Grist Quinton Stages Rally, Nicky is emphasizing that the priority for all the initiatives that he and the Organising Team are planning is to make the competitors’ experience better and better.

The press release for Nicky and the Quinton Stages Rally continues to say.....

“My sponsorship of what was already a widely-acclaimed rally is not simply about stickers and banners,” bubbles Nicky, whose involvement in the event is making the renowned former WRC co-driver even more enthusiastic than usual about anything to do with motorsport. “The Quinton team rightly earned the BTRDA’s ‘Best Rally of 2010 Award’ and past competitors have applauded the organisation, quality of the stages and the friendliness of everyone involved. My focus for the future is to make their experience even better – year on year - as we bring in the initiatives we are working on.”

Some of those initiatives require careful consultation with the MSA and work has started on that, but in the short-term, Nicky and the team are introducing a system for improving results’ distribution to competitors for 2011. “I look at rallies from a competitor’s point of view,” explains Nicky, “and one of the things that we relied on in the WRC was absolutely up-to-the-minute results’ information. To achieve that level of sophistication requires the enormous financial investment in technology that the WRC has made, but for our competitors to receive the up-to-date results’ information for them and their rivals by text message is possible with the technology available. So for all competitors in 2011, we are paying for them all to receive this - which is a first for a BTRDA event - and indicative of our commitment to improve the competitors’ experience of the NGQSR even more. After all, the crews are our customers!”

In recent years, Nicky has been closely involved with the Rally First category of the Quinton event, where his involvement with the stars of tomorrow has been applauded by the young hopefuls. One of the ingredients of this involvement has been Nicky’s Friday evening’s ‘Pace Note Discussion’, following him having reccied the next day’s stages that afternoon. “This has been such a popular part of the Nicky’s contribution to the event,” reported Clerk of the Course Neil Cross, “with many Rally First entrants saying how useful this was when they tackled the stages the next day. So, in 2011, we are throwing this evening session open to all competitors. Last year, Nicky arranged for Guy Wilks’ co-driver Phil Pugh to contribute and this year he’s promising to bring along a number of other ‘friends’. This is going to be a great draw for every competitor and is a prime example of the commitment that Nicky and the team have to improving still further the competitors’ experience.”

Regs for the Nicky Grist Quinton Stages will be available from May 21st.
