Tohill dominates in Galway


Two-time FIA European Rallycross TouringCar Champion Derek Tohill and the PFCRX team dominated the fourth round of the Irish Rallycross Championship at Tynagh in Galway on Sunday.

Derek-Tohill
 
Racing on home turf with its 600bhp Ford Fiesta Supercar for the first time in 2016, the team contested the event following a successful test at the brand new FIA World Rallycross Championship circuit at Riga in Latvia a week earlier.
 
With the IRX event being run over a single day, the timescale was tight but Tohill was able to win all three of the qualifying heats, the Supercar final and the Superfinal, thanks to 100 per cent reliability from the Fiesta RX.
 
The Irish squad will now turn its attention to the remainder of the international rallycross season, its first with the OlsbergsMSE-built Fiesta. The final two rounds of the FIA European Rallycross Championship, in which Tohill is currently 15th overall, take place in Barcelona, Spain (September 17 – 18) and Riga, Latvia (October 1-2).
 
Prior to Barcelona event, Tohill and PFCRX may race in the eighth round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship at Loheac in France (September 3 – 4).
