Rallycross competitor Tony Lynch is excited for the season ahead as he returns to the MSA British Rallycross Championship in the SuperNational class for the 2015 season.
Lynch spent the 2014 season competing in the BRTDA Rallycross Championship, ending a successful season on a high note with plenty of silverware achieved during his campaign at the wheel of his Lucas Oil Team Geriatric Mini.
Lynch will campaign his Lucas Oil Team Geriatric Mini again this year and he is looking to transfer his success across to the revamped 2015 MSA British Rallycross Championship. Having begun development of the Team Geriatric Mini last year, Tony and his team move in 2015 beginning “Phase Two'” of the process which includes a new suspension system and a new gearbox which will come into use later in the season.
Lynch is very excited ahead of the first round of the season saying: “I’m really excited that the new season has finally arrived and I can’t wait to get started. Having just been away on holiday, my batteries are recharged and I’m up for the challenge that lies ahead.
“Despite the huge strides we took last year, I’m under no illusions about how tough the Supernational class will be but I think Croft is a good place for us to start. We performed strongly there in the BTRDA series last year so it should give us a good indication of where we stand in the pecking order.”
Lynch is keeping his targets optimistic for the season ahead adding: “I don’t expect us to be fighting for victory but if others have any ‘new car’ problems, I’d hope we’ll be in a position to make the most of it.
“The first target is to try and qualify for the A Final and anything beyond that will be a bonus. Hopefully with the work planned, our target will soon become podiums but we want to keep our feet on the ground at this stage and focus on the job at hand.”
The first round of the 2015 MSA British Rallycross Championship kicks of these weekend at Croft.
