Dominic Flitney has just announced that he will be participating in the full 2022 Motorsport UK British Rallycross Championship 5 Nations Trophy with his unique Volvo C30.

Flitney impressively piloted the ex-Frode Holte European Championship event-winning C30 in the last few rounds of the 5 Nations BRX at Lydden Hill last year finishing ninth and tenth in those two rounds.

Flitney began his rallycross career back in 2018 in the Swift Sport Rallycross Championship and quickly moved up to the Supercar class with a Flitspeed-developed Subaru Impreza. Now that he has got settled in the C30, he has great aspirations for the new season, starting at the opening double-header of the campaign at Lydden Hill in April.

I’ve never looked forward to going racing as much as I am now. I want to develop myself this year, it’s been quite a big step over the last few years from where I started. I’m where I want to be now, so I’m working to be as competitive as possible, but to get some consistency too,” said Flitney. “I loved every minute of running the car for the first time at Lydden last year, a lot of it was relief because it’s such a big deal to get to that level, but the car ran fine all weekend – it was brilliant. We were not pushing it at all, so I left Lydden feeling like there’s a lot more pace in me and the car, which is a really, really nice feeling. I like the fact it’s a different car on the grid and I’m planning to do a full season in Supercar this year. Like I said, I want to find some consistency in myself and the car, because consistency wins championships. For now it’s about making the finals, trying to finish in the top five and see where we go from there, but this is rallycross and you never know what’s going to happen. If we can fight for some podiums, that would be really nice.

April 16 – Lydden Hill, England
