A record-breaking motorsport ace
Garry PEarson celebrates his first outright rally win

DOB: 7th September 1991
Lives: Duns, Scotland

Background

Garry is the model example of progression within the rallying world. From the all-important steps within the Junior formula of the sport, right up to the British Rally Championship, Garry has enjoyed success at every level he has contested.

Like many rapid youngsters, a deep-rooted family interest in the sport, buoyed by the unassailable link to the legendary and fellow Duns resident Formula One driver Jim Clark, sparked an unrivalled interest in rallying for the aspiring young rally driver.

Experience

After starting his four-wheeled motorsport career in Autograss, Garry hones his stage rally skills on a range of regional events, before progressing into the Junior British Championship. Scooping the coveted Junior and Renault Twingo Trophy titles in his early years was the beginning of a dynamic relationship with the sport which saw the progressive youngster driver attain a huge list of accolades on his way up the ladder of progression.

Breaking Records

Making history in 2021
  • CHAMPION:
    MOTORSPORT UK NATIONAL RALLY

In 2021 Garry embarked on a mission to prove his ability behind the wheel was unrivalled in domestic rallying, further enhancing his chances of reaching the pinnacle of the sport in both the UK and Europe.

Contesting the Motorsport UK National Title, the BTRDA Rally Series, Welsh Rally Championship and Scottish Rally Championships in one season, Garry would attempt to scoop some of the hardest fought titles in one year, a feat never achieved before in the history of the sport.

It didn’t take long to start his stellar season off on the right track. Podiums and wins came naturally to the Scotsman with a sensational mix of pace and talent ensuring he headed towards the end of 2021 with a chance of all four titles.

Driving both a Mitsubishi Evo IX and Skoda Fabia R5 during the season, Garry was uncatchable and secured his first championship in October, taking the Scottish Rally Championship honours in his third year of trying with victory at the Carlisle Stages.

That accolade was followed up with a Cambrian Rally win in Wales, netting him the Motorsport UK National Rally Title, before a thrilling Rallynuts Stages blast, saw Garry clinch the Welsh and BTRDA championships on the very last stage of the final round of the season.

With four major championships to his name in 2021, Garry storms into the record books and proves beyond doubt, that he is a star of the future.
