Rising junior rally star Sam Bilham will be looking to ensure he maintains his slender lead in the BTRDA National Gravel Rally First series this weekend.

The 17-year-old Bingley driver makes the trip to the famous forest complex of Sherwood for the fifth round of the championship, the Rainworth Skoda Forest Rally.

Bilham will again pilot his Nissan Micra in the Rally First one-litre category, in which he has picked up points from each event he has contested so far this season.
