Superbike master Brian McCormack is set to make the transition from two wheels onto four wheels when he competes on the opening round of the new Patch Tyre Equipment/Naas Court Hotel backed Fiesta Series on November 1.
McCormack, who is an eleven time bike racing champion, will take the wheel of a 1.25 litre Zetec engined Ford Fiesta. The championship is run by the Irish Rallycross Championship and is promoted by Leo Nulty Promotions and McCormack is looking forward to the challenge.
“The domestic bike season is just finished and this looks like great fun.” said the Superbike champion. “I have always wanted to try racing a car of some sort and this looks like the perfect opportunity.
I would like to thank Leo and The Irish Rallycross Championship for making this possible .It is a two round Championship, so if round one goes well, we might not be able to walk away!”
The Fiesta series has been a huge success as a motor racing class and has now been introduced as a budget Rallycross class.
