2014 British Rallycross Championship runner up Steve Harris has confirmed that he will drive a Citroen DS3 in the MSA Supercar category for the 2015 season.
Harris drove a Mk1 Ford Focus in the 2014 Championship, however for this year he has purchased the Citroen piloted by Pat Doran who himself made occasional appearances in 2014. The deal also sees a two-car team tie up between SH Motorsport and LD Motorsports with Doran competing in the full season as team-mate to Harris.
Harris has confirmed he wants to compete in the full 2015 British Rallycross Championship but he also has plans to compete in the FIA World Rallycross Championship event to be held at Lydden Hill in May and potentially a few others during the year.
Speaking to British Rallycross, Harris said: “The idea is to contest the full British Championship this year, but we may also look at taking part in one or two of the World rounds too. Lydden is an obvious one, but we would look at a few others as well.”
Harris has also paid tribute to the hard work of his team. “I have to thank the guys, Danny, Jamie, Mick and Bob and Jayne too, she is a star, as they work so hard in the background all the time, and with Brett and Jake kinda sorted for this year, it looks like it will be a busy one for all of us.”
His two son’s Brett and Jake could well be seen on the British Rallycross with Brett driving an RX150 Buggy whilst Jake will tackle some rounds in a Suzuki Swift, but there are very strong rumours that he could also be taking part in the Ford Focus Supercar that Steve drove to success last year.
He is also very happy about the state of the British Championship now it has seen a revamp for 2015.
Harris explained: “The organisers have worked really hard to put this years series together, and while my favourite circuit is Lydden, I think there are a lot of us really looking forward to getting to Mondello Park again, its another great circuit and there is always a good welcome for us in Ireland.”
Round 1 of The MSA 2015 British Rallycross Championship kicks off at Croft on 15 March.
