The seventh round of the Quaife MSA British Rallycross Championship has been moved to Blyton, after essential work at Mallory Park was brought forward.
The fifth round of the series was held at Mallory Park , and the changes made in recent times proved a big hit, with the round being a massive success for drivers and fans alike.
However, checks after the event, revealed that the cars had worn away the track close to a water main. Work had been scheduled for the winter months, but after the find, it was decided that the work should be brought forward to rectify the issues immediately.
As such Blyton, in Lincolnshire, will be the new venue for the September 12th round of the series.
Speaking of the round held at Mallory earlier this month, Mallory Park General Manager John Ward said “The MSA Quaife British Rallycross meeting at Mallory Park on 8th August was a big success and the drivers, organisation and fans all enjoyed one of the best events of the season so far”.
Referring to the works being brought forward, Ward clearly stated both his, and the circuit’s, ambitions by saying “We could have reinstated the track to cope with the same amount of competitors, but the organisers Lydden Hill Motor Club are predicting more entries for this ever more popular championship and together we feel that we would rather address the issue now and start preparations for an even bigger and better events here at Mallory in 2011”.
