British Rallycross Round 7 – Pembrey Circuit Wales


The Penultimate round of the British Rallycross championship Headed to the beautiful home of Welsh motorsport, Pembrey Circuit.

Although Pembrey doesn’t have a joker lap its still a drivers favorite as its a fast circuit very nearly equally split equally between tarmac and loose sections.

Practice started with glorious sunshine. Like many other championship at this stage of the year championships could be decided today. The big questions to be answered were just who would be able to clinch the championship a round early?

Along with good weather in rallycross that means dust and a lot of it!

The Super National class has been hotly contended this year. However  Ashley Simpson drove a near faultless A-Final to secure his championship. Stuart Emery his nearest rival needed a good result to take it to the final round at Croft but didn’t finish the A-final due to fuel pressure problems.
