Multiple Rallycross champion Tony Lynch will be looking to maintain his advantage in the 2011 Swift Sport Rallycross series when he heads to Blyton for the next rounds of the Quaife MSA British Rallycross Championship.
The Lincolnshire circuit will once again host the annual Night Race, where the racing will take place under floodlight. Team Geriatric driver Lynch made a winning start to 2011 with victory at Lydden Hill in the opening round.
In the gap between events, Lynch returned to Lydden Hill for the opening round of the European Rallycross Championship, where he took part in a demonstration with fellow Swift Sport Rallycross drivers in front of a crowd of over ten thousand.
Lynch, who took his maiden Suzuki win at the same track last year, said: “Winning last season at Blyton was fantastic although we got a bit of luck as the race was red-flagged and we won after the restart. I'm keen to take another win this season but without needing a second chance, and I'm going to Blyton keen to try and repeat the performance I put in at Lydden Hill in round one.
“I know it won't be easy as I think Dave Bellerby is still the quickest driver out there in the Suzukis, but we showed we can beat him at Lydden Hill and the whole team will be working hard to do it again this weekend.
“Leading the championship at this point in the year is nice, but we have to push hard to make sure we're leading when it really matters at the end of the season.”
