Lynch Sets Sights On Championship Title

1 Mins read

Tony Lynch launched his 2011 campaign in the Suzuki Swift Sport Rallycross Championship at the Autosport International Show, and took the opportunity to state his main aim “the championship”.

The 2010 season saw Lynch finish second in the standings, which was a remarkable effort considering the entire season came together at the last minute with little time to prepare.

“Last season, everything came together at the last minute, so we did a fantastic job to end the season second in the championship” he said, adding “The boys have worked hard on the car over the winter and it is fantastic to be here in January and know that everything is in place for the year ahead”.

Lynch’s “Team Geriatric” outfit have spent the close season working hard on the Suzuki Swift, to have it ready for the new season, and behind the scenes a major sponsor has been found in the form of Lucas Oils.

“No matter how hard we work on the car, we wouldn't be preparing for the new season without the support of our sponsors and it is just reward for the boys that Lucas Oils have increased their involvement for 2011, and my aim will be to do them and the remainder of my loyal sponsors proud in the season ahead” said Lynch.

With one season’s experience in the Swift, and a solid second place behind Dave Bellerby to show for his efforts, Lynch is looking to hit the ground running and take the ultimate prize.

Speaking of his goal this season, Lynch said “With a year of experience in the Suzuki, I'm going into the new season full of confidence and I can't wait for the first round to take place. Second was a good result last year, but this time, my only aim is to clinch the championship!”.

Lydden Hill hosts the opening round of the Suzuki Swift Sport Rallycross Championship, over the weekend of the 26th and 27th of March.
