The former GT Racer Mike Sellar has now confirmed he’ll be returning to the ever-growing Supercar class, driving in a ex-Hansen Motorsport built Citroën DS3.
Sellar has recently completed a 3000-mile long trip to collect his new machinery to participate in the 2020 British Rallycross Championship 5 Nations Trophy presented by Cooper Tires.
He has sold his Porsche GT3 Cup car to be available to head to Norway to pick-up his new car which the former Euro RX and World RX star Alexander Hvaal has been used in the past when he was an active driver for Hansen Motorsport. The car has been used in the World RX of Sweden in Höljes by Hans-Jøran Østreng in the Euro RX last season.
Sellar took part in rallycross between 2004 and 2007 when he was active with a Renault Clio. After that he made an one-off wildcard appearance in 2009 in Stockhatch.
As the new management structure for the 2020 BRX season, he and many other drivers have made their decisions to join back to the championship. Before the six-round campaign start, he has let Julian Godfrey Motorsport fine tune the engine for the season.
“It’s going to be strange returning to rallycross after so many years away, but I’m really looking forward to the challenge,” Sellar said.
“The new structure of British rallycross was a deciding factor in my decision and although I expect it’ll be a tough learning curve getting used to the car and racing on a different surface again, I’m hopeful that by mid-season I will be up to speed.“
“The car is a proven one, it’s an ex-Hansen Motorsport car, and Kenneth is renowned for building cars to a high standard. There’s a fair bit of work to be done bodywork wise before the season starts, and Julian [Godfrey] is working his magic on the engine. So, once that’s all completed, we’ll be ready to go.”
