Penrith driver Paul Bird wins Malcolm Wilson Rally

Local driver Paul Bird has won the Malcolm Wilson Rally for a fourth time.

The Penrith man lead the rally from start to finish and took the win by 13 seconds from Duns driver Euan Thorburn.

Thorburn, who won the rally last year, suffered mechanical problems early on which cost him a lot of time.

It wasn't a good day for Dumfries driver David Bogie who broke the rear suspension, resulting in a puncture which cost him valuable time.

The current Scottish champion had to settle for fourth place behind Stephen Petch.
