Bri­tish Su­per1600 ace Boak set to take on the Ir­ish at Mondello

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

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.

Boak will head to Ireland
