Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Roger Matthews and Tom Mar­rott have been con­firmed as over­all cham­pi­ons in the in­au­gu­ral Fuchs R.A.C. His­toric As­phalt Rally Cham­pi­onship.

Fol­low­ing two more max­i­mum scores on the Isle of Man, the Ford Es­cort Mk1 can­not be beaten on the fi­nal round, the Che­viot Stages on Ot­ter­burn on Oc­to­ber 9.

“It was a pity that Roger Mo­ran couldn’t get to the Isle of Man, as that would have made it harder for us,” said Matthews af­ter his first event on the Isle of Man.

“It’s been a very good sea­son with the new car and I’ll def­i­nitely be back to de­fend the ti­tle,” said Matthews. “It is cer­tainly more as­phalt ral­ly­ing for me for the fu­ture.”
