Lynch focused on overall honours in BTRDA finale

Wigan racer Tony Lynch has his sights firmly fixed on top honours as the Autosport International BTRDA Clubmans Rallycross Championship in partnership with Toyo Tires heads for Croft this weekend for the final round of the year.

Westhoughton-based Tony goes into the season finale as one of two drivers who can still secure the overall championship title, having successfully wrapped up the Supermodified crown in the previous meeting at Blyton.

With championship regulations stating that the title will be decided using the seven best scores of each driver, Tony heads for Croft knowing that nothing less than victory will be do in his bid to lift the title.

A seventh success of the year at the wheel of his Lucas Oil Team Geriatric-run Ford KA would lift Tony level with Junior Rallycross driver Luke Constantine in the fight for the overall crown.

With both drivers equal in terms of wins, and with seven wins from seven meaning that a countback of results isn’t possible, the title would then come down to the number of competitors each driver has beaten during the season.

In that situation, Tony would lift the title due to the number of rivals he has beaten en-route to the Supermodified crown.

“It’s been a frantic season and now it all comes down to the final round,” he said. “Having wrapped up the Supermodified title already, there is nothing to lose for us now going to Croft and we’ll be pushing as hard as possible to try and secure the overall title.

“Croft is a circuit where we have enjoyed plenty of success in the past and I go there in confident mood, although I know that it won’t be easy as the Supermodified field will be as strong as it has been all year.

“The team has done a fantastic job as always to prepare for this weekend and all I can do is go out and track and give it everything I’ve got to get the result we need.”
