Bilham sets sights on English championship honours in Fiesta ST
Sam Bilham is hoping to contest the final round of the English Rally Championship on November 6 after taking the lead of the series with a class win on the Trackrod Rally.
Ford Fiesta ST driver Bilham claimed his first victory of the ST Trophy season in the BTRDA, winning on his home event and securing second overall in the ST Trophy championship.
He now leads the English and English Junior championship with the Malton Stages providing the final round.
Bilham said of his first ST Trophy win: “We’ve been trying all year but never quite made it, it went down to the wire on that one. Winning your home event is always a bonus.”
Bilham is hoping to compete on the Malton – which runs similar stages to the Trackrod, before deciding where to head next year.
“We’re waiting for the ST to announce what they’re planning on doing. I’ve been looking into BRC for selected rounds. We started out at the Cambrian this year and I hadn’t even driven the car, so to end the year with second in the championship is great.”
