Dominant Victory For Doran At Mallory Park

1 Mins read

Pat Doran climbed back to the top step of the podium at last weekend’s round of the Quaife MSA British Rallycross Championship, in a dominant performance at the wheel of his Ford Fiesta ST ERC.

Doran was benefiting from a significant set-up change for the Mallory Park event, and went about setting fastest times throughout the qualifying heats, and then went on to produce spectacular performances in the Supercar A, and then the Superfinal.

Speaking of the set-up changes, 2009 Champion Doran said “We've changed the setup and it's like driving a different car, it's fantastic”.

Following that, Doran went on to say “I really wasn’t pushing that hard today”, a statement which will surely send shivers down the spines of his rivals in the series.

In taking the win at Mallory, Doran has closed the gap to series leader, and fellow Ford driver, Andy Grant to just 3-points.

Grant ran second early into the Superfinal, but was eclipsed by a flying Andy Scott in the Peugeot 306. Scott and Grant finished the Superfinal second and third respectively.

The championship standings see Grant remain in the lead on 124-points, with Doran now breathing down his neck on 121-points.

Summing up his feelings for the weekend, Doran added “I’m glad to have won one at last, it's turning into a really good championship battle”.
