Motor Sport News - - Rally News - BRC

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.
