Cun­ning­ham eyes 1600 move

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Joe Cun­ning­ham is eye­ing a switch to a 1.6-litre car for next year’s MN Cir­cuit Rally Cham­pi­onship af­ter seal­ing the Class A ti­tle last week­end.

Cun­ning­ham and Marc Fowler won the Class A hon­ours af­ter go­ing into the last stage tied on times with ri­vals Justin Law­son and Paul Har­g­reaves af­ter seven rounds.

They were sec­ond and third in class over­all but the win­ner on the last stage would de­cide who took the tro­phy home.

“You couldn’t write the script, could you!” said Cun­ning­ham. “It was a crack­ing year.

“We pushed and pushed go­ing into the last stage level. It was bril­liant, we chucked the clipboard out, socks off... There’s noth­ing else we could do we just had to go for it.”

The duo thought they were out af­ter the fourth stage when the Vaux­hall Corsa was stuck in gear, but speedy re­pairs at ser­vice solved the prob­lem and al­lowed them to con­tinue.
