Five things you didn’t know about the WD-40® Rally Team

With the 2018 BTRDA Rally Championship just around the corner, we thought we’d have a closer look at the team and find out who they are, where they’re from and what they do when they’re not skidding around the countryside in the WD-40 team car.

  1. The team are currently British Champions! Stephen Petch (Driver) and Michael Wilkinson (Co-driver) won the BTRDA Gold Star Championship in 2017, securing the title at their home venue, Trackrod.
  2. Winning runs in the family: Stephen’s dad (Steve Snr) won the championship 25 years previously in 1992
  3. Practice makes perfect: Michael & Stephen have been driving together since they were 17!
  4. The car doesn’t come cheap! The car is a fully prepared, world championship specification M Sport Fiesta.  If you fancy buying one, you’ll need to have a spare £350K!
  5. They eat, sleep & breathe cars: When they’re not competing in the BTRDA Rally Championship, the family run a car dealership (SG Petch) selling slightly less expensive cars than the one they drive!
