GRC Star Binks Flies Back in Britain in Swift

24/8/12

All eyes will be on the Swift Rallycross Camp for the forthcoming round at Lydden Hill this Bank Holiday Weekend with GRC ebay Motors Driver David Binks making his first return to British Rallycross since heading out to America with the BestBuy Team to contest the Global Rallycross Championship.    

 

The Swifts will dominate the holiday weekend meeting covering 3 classes of the Monster Energy in association with Maktrak British Rallycross Championship with the launch of the new S1600 Swift of Somerset driver Nick Priddy who last competed in Rallycross in 2011 driving a Vauxhall Tigra.

 

With a different winner at all five previous rounds of the Sport Championship, the win is there for the taking at Lydden Hill.  Snigwig driver Johny Bean currently lies top of the table, 7 points clear of the 2011 runner-up Tony Lynch, having delivered consistant results despite a roll at Nutts Corner during round 4.  Leeds lad and winner of round 3 Chris Mullen  has worked his way to 3rd followed by James Knight-Coney for whom Lydden is his home circuit.

Local drivers Tristan Ovenden and Darren Scott will also be looking to take their turn on that top step of the podium. Canterbury Driver Ovenden has qualified front row for the A final at several rounds previously and Scott a winner here in 2011, both will be looking for that win in front of their home crowd.

Belgian Driver Kris Fruru makes the trip across to rejoin the Swifts, again piloting the Yellow 99 Swift of Peter Gwynne Motorsport.  Fruru made his debut in a Swift at the previous round here at the start of the season. 

Swift Junior Rallycross Championship

The Junior Championship sees a welcome return to Mathew Thomas, who was tied for the lead in the championship at the end of Round 4.  Family commitments denied him contesting round 5 at Mallory Park which gives the Watford Wonder, James 'JJ' Ross who took the win at Mallory, a 19 point lead.

CJB Motorsport junior Charlie Bean moves up to second having gained confidence out on track and now challenging the front runners.  

Swedish driver Kevin Hansen joined the championship at Round 3 having turned 14 just days before.  Taking the win on his very first outing, Hansen has delivered podium finishes in every round.
