O’Donovan Chasing Italian EuroRX Podium


Ollie O’Donovan is looking to finish off his 2015 FIA European Rallycross Championship with a podium at the season’s final round in Italy this weekend.

The London based Irishman took the decision to have his Tony Bardy Motorsport prepared Ford Fiesta Supercar shipped directly to Italy for the final round of EuroRX whilst he used his older Ford Focus Supercar for both the final round of the British Rallycross Championship and the British Rallycross Grand Prix, which were held at Croft. O’Donovan finished fourth in the BritishRX final standings and took a podium finish in the BritishRX GP.

However O’Donovan is looking to take a podium finish at the Franciacorta circuit in Italy, where he is involved in a fight for eighth place in the standings with Fabien and Jonathan Pailler in their Peugeot 208’s. Having had previous appearances in the EuroRX Finals at both Norway and Spain this season, the Team RX Racing pilot is optimistic:

“I’m looking forward to getting back in the Fiesta this weekend in Italy. It’s very close at the moment; I’m between the two Pailler brothers in the points. We’re aiming for the semi-finals and if I can finish in the top ten in the championship, I’ll be more than happy.”
