Kevin Procter finished thirteenth overall in the Czech Republic round of the FIA European Rallycross Championship, to clinch 11th place in the series standings at the end of the 2010 season.
Competing in the Procter’s Luxury Coaches backed Ford Focus, Procter delivered a solid performance throughout the event, despite once-again enduring problems.
The week before Procter finished 12th place in the ERC event in Poland, an event in which he also endured problems throughout.
In the Czech Republic round, a fine ninth place in qualifying was backed-up with Procter taking victory in the first two heats, but a clash with Ludvug Hunsbedt in the third saw Procter slip into the “C” final, as opposed to the “B” final which looked almost certain.
The positive of featuring in the “C” final was that Procter started from the front row of the grid, and he started well, until clutch and differential problems brought a close to his progress.
Procter limped home in third place, behind rallycross stalwart Pat Doran, who had recently been crowned British Rallycross Champion for the second successive year.
Speaking after the event “It’s been a tough old day again, it’s just so competitive in this series and one minor problem really does hurt you. There were 30 Division 1 cars entered so to finish 13th isn’t too bad and right up until the ‘C’ Final; the car never missed a beat”.
Procter took the time out to thank everyone who has backed his challenge, “Everyone is desperate to succeed but I think we’ve done ourselves justice this season in finishing 11th in the Championship so thanks to my team and family for supporting me”.
