Manning back to rallycross
Former rallycross Supercar racerturned-hillclimb driver Mike Manning will return to rallycross this season in the BTRDA Clubmans Rallycross Championship.
Manning will race in the Production four-wheel-drive category in a Subaru Impreza.
“Having had a couple of seasons away from rallycross doing hillclimbing and sprinting, I’m itching to get back,” said Manning. “I miss the racing alongside other cars and the battles on the track. I’m still committed to hillclimbing with my Ford Puma but the BTRDA Production class events don’t clash with anything else and I’ve got four rounds on my doorstep at Pembrey. It also allows me to get back into it without spending a fortune. I can’t wait.”
The Welsh driver competed in the British Rallycross Super Modified category before moving to Supercar in an ex-john Maloney Ford Escort. He later reshelled the car into a Ford Puma, before switching to hillclimbing.
