Morris to be reunited with a classic Royale
Formula Ford veteran Rick Morris will race a Royale RP26 this season in the Classic Formula Ford Championship.
To mark the category’s 50th season, Royale owner Alan Cornock has restored an RP26 from 1980 and will renew an association with Morris that goes back to when Morris was a works Royale driver in 1981.
“I bought two cars that had been hillclimbing,” said Cornock. “I wanted the one we’ll race to look good and so we finished it in the Crompton Lighting colours of Jim Walsh.”
Morris, who will reach 70 before the season starts, last raced a Royale in 1991 when he was fourth in the Formula Ford Festival final.
