SWIFT JUNIORS SET FOR WEEKEND IN WALES!
The Motorsport UK Swift Juniors have provided some of the most exciting racing in the TOYO TIRES British Rallycross Championship so far this season, and do not expect any different as the teenagers head to Pembrey Circuit this weekend for a double header event. With four rounds remaining, there is still all to play for and the chance of claiming that coveted Motorsport UK Junior Rallycross Championship crown, previously held by now professional drivers such as FIA World Rallycross Championship front runner Kevin Hansen and British Touring Car Championship star Andrew Jordan, is still wide open. Patrick O'Donovan, having delivered podium positions so far at every round, scored his first win to take the top step at Lydden Hill, which escalated him to the top of the championship table after round five. 2018 season runner up, Luke Constantine, having won the opening two rounds and who has also been a regular on the podium had led the championship from the season start, however, feeling unwell at Lydden, whilst happy with fourth on race day, that was enough for O'Donovan to edge above by one point.
Latvian driver Roberts Vitols currently lies third in the championship standings and having been victorious a both previous rounds at Pembrey this season, will be looking to repeat his performance as he makes a return to the Welsh circuit. In front of his home crowd, Tom Ovenden took his first podium position at Lydden Hill and will be looking to build on that with another top three place, whilst local driver Archie Thomas from Llandysul will also be hoping to hold aloft some silverware in front of his home supporters at the 'Home of Welsh Motorsport'. Fastest man throughout qualifying at Lydden, Ben Sayer has proved his has the pace to take the win and only narrowly missing out at the previous round, settling for second, he will be looking for his first race win this weekend.
It was a disappointing run last time out for James Constantine who suffered issues with his car throughout the day. He will be hoping for a better weekend, whilst in his first season in Rallycross and behind the wheel of a car, Alfie Porter is gaining confidence and consistency every time out, mixing it in the pack. Disappointed newcomer Harry Garman will miss the trip to Wales due to a excursion with his school, however returns for the final two rounds at Croft Circuit in October. This has the recipe for an epic weekend for these talented teenagers. Join us in supporting the stars of the future for what is sure to be an action-packed weekend in Wales.
