Civic star Swift tar­gets en­durance out­ings

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Civic Cup leader Carl Swift is aim­ing to wrap up the ti­tle early this sea­son so he can switch into en­durance rac­ing be­fore the end of the year.

Swift has won four of the first six events in Class B this year, and qual­i­fied on pole for ev­ery timed ses­sion so far.

The Sh­effield-based racer has opened a 46-point lead at the head of the stand­ings, and is ea­ger to wrap the ti­tle up early.

Swift made his en­durance rac­ing de­but in the Creven­tic Sil­ver­stone 24 Hours event this year, han­dling a Civic run by his usual team Area Mo­tor­sport. He fin­ished sev­enth in class along­side Endaf Owens, Rob Howard and Mark Har­ris.

“The plan is to win the ti­tle and then sell the car and do more long-dis­tance races,” said Swift. “This year has gone well. If I can keep up the mo­men­tum then I could fo­cus on the Creven­tic stuff as that’s the next step.”
