Civic star Swift targets endurance outings
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.”
