Swift Rallycross Championships

A Point Apart for Penultimate at Pembrey

4/10/12

The Swift Rallycross Championships heads to Wales this weekend for the penultimate round of the Monster Energy British Rallycross Championship in association with MakTrak at Pembrey Circuit, near Llanelli.  

There is all to race for in the Sport Championship which has seen five different winners over the six previous rounds.  Chris Mullen piloting the Stonegate Swift, being the only driver to have taken two wins, sits one point off current championship leader Johny Bean who has delivered consistent results which have kept him at the top of the table.

A further four points back is 2011 runner up Tony Lynch.  Having been runner up for the previous two years, Lynch hoping to take the crown this season will be looking for those vital championship points before the final round at Croft Circuit at the end of the month.

Also still in the running is Autopoint Engineering Owner Graham Rodemark who currently lies fourth  despite having missed round 3 due to work commitments with the Doran Supercars .   Rodemark has shown he is a force to be reckoned with having taken the win for round 4 ( Nutts Corner)  over the rest of the field who had driven the track the previous day of this double-header event.

Swift Junior Championship

The Junior Champion could be decided at Pembrey with James Ross currently 24 points clear at the top of the table. The Snigwig team Junior, Charlie Bean holds second closely followed by Mathew Thomas who was unable to attend round 5 due to family commitments.  Thomas missed crucial points having been tied at the top of the table with Ross at the end of round 4. 

New kid on the block Swedish driver Kevin Hansen who joined the championship mid-season contesting his first round in Northern Ireland just days after his 14th birthday and taking the win in his very first race, misses this round making Ross’s task of clinching the title easier.
