Tony Lynch officially crowned Retro Rallycross championPartners news
Wigan racer Tony Lynch has been crowned 2022 Retro Rallycross Championship title winner despite the cancellation of the season finale at Lydden Hill.
Tony and Team Geriatric had made the trip to the Kent circuit on the weekend of 5/6th November having already wrapped up the Retro class title, and with an advantage over Super Retro champion John Cross in the battle for overall honours.
However after a solid start to proceedings for the team in the opening qualifying heat, weather related issues prevented the second qualifying heat going ahead on Saturday evening. Worsening conditions overnight then forced the meeting to be abandoned.
The Lydden meeting was declared null and void, with the ultimate championship results being decided based on the standings following the penultimate weekend of action at Pembrey. As a result, Tony and the team were able to celebrate a second championship victory of the year.
“Obviously it isn’t the way that we wanted to wrap up the championship title, but at the same time, we’re delighted to have clinched the overall Retro Rallycross crown. We’ve had some fantastic battles on track in our class this season, particularly with Terry Moore and Simon Hart, and it’s been a really enjoyable year going up against them.
“This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the various sponsors who have backed us this year, and of course, without the hard work of my team behind the scenes to continually improve the car and get it into a position where we could consistently push for wins.
“Now we know the title is secured, we can start to focus on 2023, and hopefully we’ll be able to return to try and defend our crown!”
