Su­per Na­tional cham­pion Rooke steps up with ex-bakkerud Supercar

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

Su­per Na­tional ral­ly­cross cham­pion Dan Rooke will race a Citroen DS 3 Supercar in the Bri­tish se­ries this sea­son.

Rooke won the Su­per Na­tional cat­e­gory in his maiden sea­son in the sport last year, driv­ing the Citroen AX he had pre­vi­ously used in au­tocross com­pe­ti­tion.

The DS 3 is the car that car­ried An­dreas Bakkerud to a pair of Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship vic­to­ries in 2013 and will be run by Liam Do­ran’s LD Mo­tor­sports team.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited to be able to make the move into Supercar,” said Rooke. “The cars are a lot dif­fer­ent from what I am used to so I am look­ing for­ward to learn­ing how to drive the car and to race it.

Rooke has signed up with Liam Do­ran’s LD team
