The Hills Ford name made a welcome return to national motorsport prominence in 2016, with William Hill & co-driver Richard Crozier claiming the AB Motorsport Front-Wheel-Drive, B10 1600cc & Prima Motorsport Junior Driver titles of the prestigious MSA Asphalt Rally Championship.
In 23-year-old Worcester native William’s first full season of rally driving, despite tackling many of the stages for the first time, the crew consistently turned heads in the UK’s premier sealed-surface rally championship. With their Ford Fiesta R2 scoring podiums in five out of six attempts, the pair succeeded in securing the hat-trick of titles with a round to spare.

The whole year has been a fantastic experience for myself and really increased my knowledge and confidence of Driving this Car.
