CHRIS THOMAS RENEWS HIS WINNING WAYS
After winning the 1998 Cyprus championship Chris has taken some time out to concentrate on his business. He has done selected foreign events as well as Cyprus rally however as far as championship programs are concerned he decided to take a sabbatical.
2002 has seen the renewed partnership with Cool Motorsport take place and a decision was taken to have a further assault at the Cyprus championship.
This weekend on the East Safari Rally the first round of this championship has seen this partnership get off to the best possible start. A controlled well planned out attack saw him overhaul the 2001 champion Andreas Tsouloftas to win his first rally in nearly 3 years.
Chris was obviously overjoyed to be back winning; he said "It’s been a bit of a quiet period for me but it’s nice to know I still have it in me to win, I couldn’t hope for a better start to the championship. The team worked like clockwork all weekend and without their help and support this would not have been possible"
