Multiple British Stockhatch Champion Tony Lynch heads to Mallory Park for the latest round of the 2010 Quaife MSA British Rallycross Championship this weekend looking to bounce back from the disappointment he suffered last time out in Belgium.

Despite setting the quickest time amongst the Suzuki Swift Challenge racers at the Maasmechelen circuit, Tony – from Westhoughton near Wigan – only managed to pick up a sixth place finish when contact from Ryan Lawford on the opening lap saw him spin out of contention and sustain heavy damage to his car.

Tony and Team Geriatric have worked hard to repair the Suzuki ahead of round five of the season, where he will hope to return to winning ways after his victory at Blyton earlier in the year.

With the team better prepared than ever for the weekend ahead, Tony is ready to take to the fight to championship leader Dave Bellerby as he looks to close the gap at the top of the Suzuki Swift Challenge standings.

“I set the fastest lap amongst the Suzuki drivers in Belgium, so it was frustrating to be taken out in the final,” Tony said, “but I’ve put that behind me and am heading to Mallory Park looking to fight for a second win of the year.

“It’s going to be difficult to close the gap to Dave in the championship but that won’t stop us trying, and we want to show everyone that we can be a real force to be reckoned with in the Suzuki Swift Challenge for 2011. We are going into the weekend better prepared and more ready than we have for any event this season and I know I can get the job done.

“The guys have put a lot of work into repairing the car after Maasmechelen and I want to get a result for them as much as for myself. At the end of the day, I’m just one small part of Team Geriatric.”
