Pryce aims for more ral­ly­cross af­ter BRX de­but

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Osian Pryce has tar­geted a drive in a Bri­tish Ral­ly­cross su­per­car af­ter the rally man made his de­but in the cat­e­gory late last month at Pem­brey in South Wales.

Pryce was one of the guest driv­ers called in to drive in the RX150 cat­e­gory for ral­ly­cross bug­gies. The se­ries has put star driv­ers in the car all year with over 30 driv­ers com­pet­ing over the course of the sea­son.

Pryce fin­ished sec­ond, the only celebrity to get on the podium this year, and con­firmed in­tent to com­pete in the dis­ci­pline again.

“I’d def­i­nitely do it again and I’d like to try an­other se­ries: I’d like to try a su­per­car as that’s se­ri­ously com­pet­i­tive,” said Pryce. “Ev­ery­thing comes at a cost though.”

Pryce be­lieves that race­craft is the most dif­fi­cult thing to adapt to as a rally driver.

“The first cou­ple of heats were dra­matic with plenty of con­tact go­ing on,” he added. “It was quite frus­trat­ing: you’re up at the sharp end and you get shunted off.that’s part of the sport though I sup­pose.”
