Shar­rock takes MN Cir­cuit lead at Cad­well

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

The in­au­gu­ral Motorsport News Cir­cuit Rally Cham­pi­onship will go down to the wire af­ter James Shar­rock in­her­ited the lead of the se­ries last week­end.

Erst­while cham­pi­onship leader Ash­ley Field was in a com­fort­able lead at Cad­well on Sun­day, but a bro­ken drive­shaft cost him the win. In­stead, Shar­rock fin­ished sec­ond to set up an epic battle on the fi­nal round of the cham­pi­onship. He leads Steve Quigley by 20 points and Field by 31.

“We’re happy we’ve taken the lead but it wasn’t nice the way it hap­pened with Ash­ley,” said Shar­rock. “There are a lot of peo­ple with stuff to play for at the last round, the Miche­lin cham­pi­onship is also up for grabs so it will be in­ter­est­ing.”

The se­ries con­cludes at Snet­ter­ton with the Boltonle-moors-run MSVR Bolton Mid­night on May 15.

The cham­pi­onship win­ner will win a free track day, a Motorsport News sub­scrip­tion and an MSV sea­son pass.
