Ward to sell Fi­esta but has plans for En­duroka

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Clas­sic Stock Hatch ti­tle run­ner-up Mar­cus Ward in­tends to take a year off from com­pet­i­tive rac­ing in 2019 and sell his Ford Fi­esta XR2I that he com­peted in this sea­son.

Ward plans to sell his Fi­esta in order to take a break next year due to the time and money re­quired to com­pete in the 750 Mo­tor Club cham­pi­onship, and in­stead will con­sider en­ter­ing the new En­duroka se­ries for en­joy­ment.

“Sell the car and have a break – that’ll be nice,” Ward said of his in­ten­tions. “We’ll have a lit­tle bit of a break over the win­ter and take a year off.

“We’ve got the in­ten­tion of rac­ing the En­duroka se­ries, lit­er­ally just for a laugh, purely be­cause it would be nice to go out just to go out and ac­tu­ally have some fun all the time rather than have to worry about scrap­ing a point here, point there, get­ting the car squared up for the next round. It’s a huge in­vest­ment of time and money.”
