Two CAT Award winners are celebrating after Nik Elsmore and Nigel Gardner secured a podium finish at the WyeDean Rally in February.

‘Green Innovation’ CAT award winner Klarius teamed up with ‘Motor Factor of the Year’ GMF to sponsor the event, which is a round of the BTRDA championship.

Klarius’ award winning green racing catalytic converter was fitted to the car.

On the day, 163 cars competed in numerous categories ranging from historic classics to modern WRC cars.

Bill Godfrey, UK sales manager for Klarius, said: “We believe that motor racing is important to the motor industry as it fuels the need for continuous development of technologies.

“We are proud to have sponsored such a well run and enjoyable event – hopefully we can play a part in future rallies.”

Local lad Nik Elsmore, and driver of the Klarius/GMF sponsored car, said: “While it would have been nice to have secured my third victory today, I am over the moon with a podium finish.

“It is a great honour for me each year that I race this event and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Klarius and GMF.
