Mor­ris to be re­united with a clas­sic Royale

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.
