Rally car gets ready at AW

AW Repair Group is proud to be transforming a unique rally car for Lincolnshire racer Ben Duckworth.

Ben will be participating in the British Cross Country Championships, which kicks off in April 2014, driving a specially constructed Milner 4WD Off Road vehicle.

The Motor Sports Association regulated event includes six races, each over two days, at various locations across the UK between April and October.

“The courses are designed to include cross country off-roading but also flat areas for speeds of up to 120mph,” said Ben. “The Milner LRM1 I will be driving has a Jaguar 4.4 V8 petrol engine around 400HP. It’s only the second vehicle of its type to be made.”

Ben, who has previously competed in desert racing, is looking forward to the challenge with his co-driver Howard Belt. But he is no stranger to off-road vehicles as he is a family member of Lincolnshire LandRover dealerships Duckworth LandRover.

“We already work closely in partnership with AW Repair Group as our Jaguar LandRover appointed paint and body centre so they were the obvious choice to paint the Milner black and silver for me,” added Ben.
The races are expected to be televised on lads’ satellite channel Dave.
