Burton set to make MN Circuit Rally return in Ford Fiesta XR2
Mark Burton will return his 2015/16 title-winning Ford Fiesta XR2 to the Motorsport News Circuit Rally Championship this year after two seasons out.
Burton, who won the Class B title two years ago, will again turn out in his Fiesta XR2 alongside co-driver and father John.
“The plan is to do the full season, reliability and car damage permitting,” Burton said. “I’ve freshened the driveshaft and given it a new paint job, but it’s exactly the same car as I won the Class B title in.”
Burton is also relishing a trip north to Knockhill in December, and believes the two-day event in Scotland will boost the championship.
“I’m very keen to do that round because I’ve always wanted to go to Knockhill, and now I’ve got the chance.
“[Two-day events] are good because if you have anything go wrong with the car, your event isn’t necessarily over there and then.”
