The Penultimate round of the British Rallycross championship Headed to the beautiful home of Welsh motorsport, Pembrey Circuit.
Although Pembrey doesn’t have a joker lap its still a drivers favorite as its a fast circuit very nearly equally split equally between tarmac and loose sections.
Practice started with glorious sunshine. Like many other championship at this stage of the year championships could be decided today. The big questions to be answered were just who would be able to clinch the championship a round early?
Along with good weather in rallycross that means dust and a lot of it!
Round winner Pat Doran who won after Julian Godfrey spectacularly spun on the very last corner of the A-Final
There are no less than 4 drivers who can take the remaining third spot in this years championship. Could Icelandic driver Jon B. Hrolfsson do it in his first season racing in Britain?
Julian Godfrey managed to secure his third consecutive championship and hang onto the coveted GB1 position
The Super National class has been hotly contended this year. However Ashley Simpson drove a near faultless A-Final to secure his championship. Stuart Emery his nearest rival needed a good result to take it to the final round at Croft but didn’t finish the A-final due to fuel pressure problems.
One of the two Championships that will go to the final round is the Hot Hatch’s. With just 1 point separating John Lyne (71) and Craig Lomax (1)
John spun out on the first lap of the A-Final and in only what can be labeled the comeback drive of the season managed to claw back not only half a lap but managed an incredible 4th place!
In the BMW Mini class Tony Lynch took the win at Pembrey to take the BMW championship to the final round a Croft
The RX150’s were as usual in epic form. With some of the closest racing. Watching these R1 powered machines is truly something to behold
Marc Scott who has been on blistering form all season managed the inevitable and tied up the championship. However second and third places are still undecided with Kevin Feeney and Richard Moore both able to clinch second place.
Kevin Hansen also managed to clinch the Junior Rallycross title. In fine form.
Graham Rodemark secured the Swift Championship. Guest driver Alan Tappscott in the Monster Energy ’55’ car made him work for the round win!
