Sam Moffett due an Ulster BRC return
Sam Moffett will delay his British Rally Championship return until next month’s Ulster Rally.
Moffett missed the Pirelli Carlisle Rally, which clashed with the Irish Tarmac championship round in Killarney. He also missed the Scottish and will be absent from the Nicky Grist Stages this weekend due to work commitments.
“The Scottish was too close to Donegal,” said Moffett. “The car was ready but we had too much work on. The recce was Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday [for Donegal] and the rally started Friday. I’m still trying to get caught up now.
“Ulster is the next round of the Irish Tarmac championship so we’ll definitely be there for that. We’re having a really good battle with Keith [Cronin] and Alastair [Fisher] so we’ll be at Ulster [on August 19/20] and then Cork.”
Moffett’s young brother, Josh, is third in the BRC standings after claiming top points on the Circuit of Ireland. He also made it to the Scottish where he finished sixth overall. Joined by co-driver John Rowan, he’ll contest the Nicky Grist Stages and is seeded number six.
