Sharrock takes MN Circuit lead at Cadwell
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.
