Tony Lynch targets strong score from Belgian adventure
Wigan racer Tony Lynch will seek to maintain his strong run of form when the 2022 Retro Rallycross Championship season resumes this weekend at the Glosso circuit in Belgium.
Tony and his Landsail Tyres Motorsport Team Geriatric will make the trip over the English Channel looking to mainland Europe eager to build on a fine performance last time out Pembrey, where Tony stormed to a double win at the wheel of his Toyota MR2.
Those two wins allowed Tony to hit the front in the championship for the first time this season, with the two month break since the Welsh meeting providing the team with the opportunity to continue work on improving the Toyota.
Alongside technical partner Paul Waldron Motorsport, the team has worked to resolve the suspension issues that Tony suffered last time out and has also spent time given the car a full overhaul to ensure peak reliability for the Belgian weekend.
Eager to reward the team for its efforts, Tony has his eyes firmly fixed on the top step of the podium to retain his place at the head of the standings.
“It seems like an age since we raced at Pembrey and I can’t wait to get back out on track,” he said. “Confidence is on a high after our double win last time out and we head for Belgium with one goal – and that is to bring home another win.
“Although we haven’t been racing, the team has worked hard with Paul Waldron to make sure that the car is in the best shape possible for this weekend as reliability is more important than ever when we are so far from home.
“If we were to have a failure on the car then it would be game over as we can’t just nip back home for parts, so hopefully all the hard work will help to give us the best possible chance of success.
“With Glosso being a new addition to the calendar, we’re all taking a bit of a step into the unknown, but we’re ready for the challenge and looking forward to getting our championship challenge back underway.”
