Fisher’s Fi­esta ready for Cir­cuit at­tack

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Ir­ish Tar­mac Cham­pi­onship fron­trun­ner Alas­tair Fisher has his Ford Fi­esta R5 ready for the Cir­cuit of Ire­land af­ter a crash on the West Cork Rally.

Fisher has been the clos­est driver to ITRC leader Keith Cronin in the first two rounds of the cham­pi­onship’s new era.

“We haven’t had too many is­sues get­ting it ready,” said Fisher. “[In the crash] we hit the front left. We were slightly late on the brakes and hit a bump, which didn’t help.”

Fisher – nephew of Ir­ish Tar­mac leg­end Ber­tie – is not com­pet­ing in the Bri­tish cham­pi­onship like Cronin, so has his eyes firmly set on the West Cork driver and max­i­mum ITRC points.

“We have to have the cham­pi­onship in mind. Yes we’ll be keep­ing Keith in our sights but he’ll be close to the front any­way,” he said.
