To­hill misses Lydden to ex­tend Euro pro­gramme

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

Ir­ish­man Derek To­hill elected to miss the Bri­tish World RX counter at Lydden Hill to fo­cus on round two of the Euro­pean cham­pi­onship in Nor­way next week.

To­hill had en­tered the Kent event for ex­tra seat time in his Ols­bergsmse-built Ford Fi­esta Su­per­car. But hav­ing se­cured an en­try in Nor­way by virtue of his 12th place in round one in Bel­gium, the dou­ble-euro­pean RX Tour­ing­car cham­pion is hop­ing to con­test a full cam­paign as a non-per­ma­nent en­trant.

“We had a lot of work to do af­ter Bel­gium so we de­cided to con­cen­trate on be­ing as or­gan­ised as pos­si­ble be­fore the next Euro RX race,” said To­hill. “We’ve not been part of the Euro­pean cham­pi­onship for al­most three years and there have been a lot of changes. It shows the strength of the se­ries that non-per­ma­nent en­tries are far from guar­an­teed this sea­son.”
