Welshpool rally driver James Watkins introduced his improved Nissan Micra and a new co-driver to sponsors and the press at Sweet Lamb yesterday, Friday and MyWelshpool was there to see the action.

The 21  year old introduced 17 year old Llanfair rally enthusiast Siobhan Pugh to his backers in the Hafren Forest and gave supporters the chance to sit in the co-driver's hot seat of the 1000cc Micra on a rally section.

The car, prepared by Geoff Jones Motorsport, is once again sponsored by Makefast of Newtown and Rally Marketing of Welshpool.

"I am indebted to Makefast, Rally Marketing and Geoff Jones Motorsport for their continued support because without them we could not have had such a successful 2010," said James.

"I am really looking forward to the year ahead when we will be much more competitive," he added.

The pair will compete in the Newtown based Rally Marketing Mid Wales Stages on March 6, and continue with the Bulldog Rally in April and then the Plains Rally in May.

This will be followed by the Coracle Stages, the Neath Valley Stages, the Woodpecker Stages, the Cambrian Rally and they will bring down the curtain on the year with ther Pembrey Christmas Stages on December 28.
