JUNIOR SWIFTS HEAD FOR LYDDEN HILL

The Motorsport UK Junior Swifts return to Lydden Hill Race Circuit where the majority of the juniors featured at the Kent track as part of the Titans RX series in July. Making his Swift Rallycross debut is Harry Garman who turns fourteen just days before the event. Having previously competed in karting where he has claimed champion status in 2016 in Honda Cadet and 2017 X30 Mini at Whilton Mill Kart Club, this will be his first competition racing a car. 2018 runner up Luke Constantine sits top of the table with a six point advantage, although closing the gap is Latvian driver Roberts Vitols who did the double at Pembrey, taking the win both days to boost his points score to a podium position, taking him to third in the championship. Patrick O’Donovan has provided spectators with nail-biting racing so far this season, so close to the win in every outing, challenging the front runners across the line, it is only a matter of time before he takes the top step himself. Having made the podium in every race so far, O’Donovan currently stands second overall.
Winner of rounds three and four, Roberts Vitols from Latvia
James Constantine and Ben Sayer who have both previously delivered podium positions, make the long trip down from North Yorkshire, whilst Tom Ovenden from Canterbury will be hoping to excel at his home circuit having scored second at the Titans RX event last month. Alfie Porter from Waltham Abbey, gaining confidence with every outing in his debut Swift season will also be looking to mix it with the front of the pack at his most local track and completing the junior swift line up this bank holiday is Archie Thomas, who is also competing in his first full season in the Swifts and will be looking to win some silverware to take back to Wales.
