Cunningham eyes 1600 move
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.
