Team Parker to run Ste­wart Lines Fo­cus

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Team Parker Rac­ing will take over the op­er­a­tion of Ste­wart Lines’s Max­i­mum Mo­tor­sport Ford Fo­cus – al­though the driver is fight­ing to be fit enough to start the sea­son.

Lines, 53, fell from a push­bike two weeks ago and has been im­mo­bile since. He has dam­aged mus­cles and has torn lig­a­ments in his groin.

Lines said: “I am in a lot of pain, but I am on the road to re­cov­ery. It will prob­a­bly be a month un­til I am there. The me­dia day for the BTCC isn’t un­til March 16 at Don­ing­ton Park so if I rest, I hope I will be fit enough to take part in that.”

If Lines is un­able to drive the car at the open­ing rounds of the year at Brands Hatch (April 1/2), the team will have to field a sub­sti­tute driver to make sure it ful­fils the terms of its TOCA BTCC Li­cence (TBL) to en­able it to con­test the rest of the sea­son.

Lines: Race to be fit for 2017
