British Super1600 ace Boak set to take on the Irish at Mondello
British Rallycross Super1600 racer Michael Boak will contest the final round of the Irish Rallycross Championship this weekend at Mondello Park alongside MB Motorsport team-mate, Phil Chicken.
The pair will race their Citroen C2s. Boak won the final British RX Super1600 round at Croft last month and finished as top two-wheel-drive car in the Rallycross Grand Prix. He also won the last round of the BTRDA Clubmans series.
Mondello Park is returning to the British RX calendar for 2017, after a year’s absence.
Boak explained: “After a tough year with mechanical gremlins, we have hopefully turned a corner and want to continue the development of the C2 in preparation for 2017.
“I haven’t raced at Mondello for a number of years, but always enjoy racing with our Irish friends.”
Willie Coyne, Pat Ryan, Pearse Browne, Lloyd Spendlove and Derek Tohill will fight for the overall Irish Rallycross Championship title.
With two dropped scores, victory for double European Champion Tohill would almost certainly secure him the crown, regardless of other drivers’ results.
