Howard Davies joins Go Motorsport

Howard Davies has navigated Gwyndaf Evans and Steve Perez to success

Go Motorsport is delighted to announce that renowned rally co-driver Howard Davies from Machynlleth, Powys has become the Motor Sports Association’s Regional Development Officer in North Wales.

Davies who came to national and international fame as Gwyndaf Evans’ co-driver when winning the British Rally Championship in 1996 and is still totally immersed in motor sport, notably as a presenter on S4C’s Ralio+ programme, is one of ten selected Regional Development Officers to have been recruited by the MSA.

The role of these RDOs is to develop all areas of motor sport within their region and, in particular, to promote all the opportunities offered by motor sport in schoolrooms and school assemblies. As part of a nationwide Go Motorsport scheme, the presentations are offered free of charge to all UK educational establishments. With his vast experience in rallying, existing contacts and Welsh language, few personalities are more qualified than Howard for spreading the motor sport message in North Wales.

Having enjoyed a colourful and successful life in motor sport, I’m delighted to have this fantastic opportunity to 
share  my enthusiasm and adventures with the next generation of potential participants,” explained Davies. 
“Hopefully I can inspire many of them to get involved – that’s why I’m so keen to put something back into the 
sport.” 
 
We were overwhelmed by the quality of the applicants for this position and we are delighted to welcome someone of the calibre of Howard to the team,” said MSA Chief Executive Colin Hilton. “Clearly, with this year’s Wales Rally GB starting in North Wales, this is a very important time for rallying in the area and Howard will be a great asset in helping to generate serious interest in all forms of motor sport, particularly among the younger generation.”
