Spencer Sport becomes official distributor for the R5 specification Mitsubishifor UK and Ireland

15th October 2015

South-west Wales based Spencer Sport has been appointed as the official distributor for the new R5 specification Mitsubishi in the UK and Ireland.

The news – together with the company’s future plans – was announced at a launch event held at Spencer Sport’s premises in Wales on Monday 12th October, where two of the R5 specification Mitsubishi Mirages were on display.

Following a brief presentation, guests were treated to a ride alongside talented Welsh rally driver Osian Pryce, who demonstrated the car’s abilities around the venue’s gravel rally stage.

The appointment as official distributors kick starts Spencer Sport’s expansion plans, as the company that was established at the beginning of 2014 has now grown into a fully resourced motorsport preparation business. In addition to taking on the responsibility of sales, parts supply and technical support for the R5 specification Mitsubishi in the UK and Ireland, Spencer Sport now also opens its doors to other rally teams and drivers to offer an end-to-end service that includes preparation, maintenance and support for their cars, both on and off events.

“This is a very exciting time for us”, said Spencer Sport manager Charlie Jukes. “R5 is becoming the category of choice for more and more drivers, with national championships now making it the premier class. There has been a huge amount of interest in the Mitsubishi and therefore, we are delighted to become the official distributors of the car for the UK and Ireland.”

Following the launch, one of the cars was tested on gravel on Tuesday and Asphalt on Wednesday, with Jari Ketomaa and Osian Pryce at the wheel. Both cars will take part in next weekend’s Cambrian Rally under the Spencer Sport banner, with Osian Pryce piloting one and Swedish driver Martin Berglund in the other.

Spencer Sport is eager to hear from teams and drivers who are interested in purchasing the new R5 specification Mitsubishi. Further details about technical information, delivery times and eligibility are available on request.
