O’dono­van set to take on the world

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

For­mer Bri­tish Ral­ly­cross cham­pion Ol­lie O’dono­van will com­pete in the fi­nal round of the FIA World Ral­ly­cross Cham­pi­onship in South Africa this sea­son.

He will tackle the WRX round along­side his third suc­ces­sive full pro­gramme in the FIA Euro­pean Ral­ly­cross Cham­pi­onship, driv­ing a Ford Fi­esta Su­per­car.

The Ir­ish driver is also plan­ning to race in the Bri­tish round of World RX, and will be­gin the year in the Bri­tish Ral­ly­cross Cham­pi­onship too. He plans to con­tinue in the do­mes­tic se­ries for as long as he has a chance of fight­ing for the ti­tle.

“I’m de­lighted that we are able to an­nounce our plans at this stage of the year, it gives us a solid base to build on head­ing to the first round of the Bri­tish Cham­pi­onship at Croft and the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship in Spain,” said O’dono­van.

“I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to this sea­son. The Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship will be more com­pet­i­tive than ever, and to race in South Africa at the end of the year will be very spe­cial. We have un­fin­ished busi­ness in the Bri­tish Cham­pi­onship too, but we have to see how things go. The pri­or­ity is the Euro Cham­pi­onship and the World Ral­ly­cross Cham­pi­onship events,” he added.
