MSA British Rallycross driver Craig Lomax, competing in the Super1600 class with XtremeRX at the wheel of a Citroen C2, has put all of his efforts into getting his car ready for this Sunday’s round three of the British Rallycross at Pembrey Circuit in Wales, after suffering extensive damage last time round at Lydden Hill in April.
During the past seven weeks, XtremeRX have worked flat-out in order to get the Citroen back on track for the next challenge:
“The roll and following contact with another competitor caused a lot of damage which has taken some time to get sorted, Lomax says.
” I’ve had some great help to get the car straight and re-prepped before the long drive to Wales”
The team’s work, however, has not finished with repairing the car: during the Welsh meeting, they will be doing their best to ensure everything works perfectly, so as to give their driver the best of opportunities to fight for victory.
“It’s going to be tough, Lomax reckons. “We know that some of our nearest rivals go better on the loose and there is a lot of loose at Pembrey, I’m going to have to drive flat out from the first heat”
Another reason of concern for teams and drivers alike is the newly-introduced track layout, which is likely to throw in a few curve balls, although XtremeRX, currently sitting joint second in the Championship, are confident of a good result, as they plan to first secure their second place in the standings, then go after the Championship leader, Paul Coney.
Action at Pembrey Circuit for British RX round three starts at 9am on Sunday, 25 June.
