Disappointing Mallory Park Weekend For Lynch

1 Mins read

Tony Lynch managed to claw back a podium result at a difficult Mallory Park for the fourth round of the British Rallycross Championship.

Westhoughton-based Lynch’s weekend started badly, with a heavy landing in an opening heat damaging his BMW Mini, meaning he would have to start down in fourth place for the final.

An optimistic start for the winner of the previous round in Knockhill did not pay off, however, as Lynch was forced to back out of a three-wide move in to the opening corner.

A second heavy landing at the same spot ruined any chances of a victory for Lynch, though, and he was left to run a damage limitation race, with only a late puncture for one of his rivals promoting him up to the bottom step of the podium.

“On paper, third seems like a decent result, but if I’m being honest, I’m disappointed that we’ve not come away from the weekend with a lot more,” he said. “We headed to Mallory on a real high after the win at Knockhill and were confident that we’d be right in the mix for victory again, but it just didn’t go our way.

“It’s disappointing we don’t have better results from the weekend but this is just one of those that we have to put behind us and make sure we come back stronger when we head to Belgium for the next round.”
