Crozier achieves three rally at­tempt

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

MSA Academy-backed co-driver Richard Crozier suc­cess­fully com­pleted three ral­lies in the space of 36 hours ear­lier this month.

Af­ter guid­ing Darren Moon’s Ford Es­cort Mk2 to 22nd over­all and sec­ond in the His­toric class on the Bor­der Coun­ties Rally (March 19), Crozier made the hour’s dash south to Northum­ber­land for the Hex­ham His­toric Rally.

Ar­riv­ing just 25 min­utes be­fore their start time, Crozier and reign­ing Le­jog win­ner Andy Lane en­joyed a trou­ble­free run to steer Lane’s BMW 2002tii to a com­fort­able 25-minute win.

Crozier and Lane then made a two-hour com­mute and man­aged just four hours sleep, be­fore con­test­ing Sun­day’s North York­shire Clas­sic Rally.

De­spite fa­tigue, the pair set times good enough for fourth over­all, but a mis-plot early on meant they spent their day stag­ing a fight­back. They re­cov­ered from 53rd in the morn­ing to a 15th place.
