Mcer­lean hop­ing to nar­row points deficit

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Josh Mcer­lean will re­turn to Ju­nior 1000 ac­tion on the Keith Frecker Memo­rial Stages this week­end look­ing to close the gap to points leader Peter Ben­nett.

Mcer­lean missed the first round of the sea­son, but won the sub­se­quent two rounds at Anglesey and Mel­bourne.

How­ever, he hasn’t com­peted on the Wee­ton Camp-based event be­fore and be­lieves com­pe­ti­tion there – and for the rest of the sea­son – will be very tight.

“We’re go­ing there with a level head,” said Mcer­lean. “From this round on­wards the cham­pi­onship moves away from the cir­cuit-based venues we’ve done so well on to date to venues that are gen­er­ally more grav­elly, nar­row and fast. The com­pe­ti­tion will be closer.”
