making its second visit of the 2015 season the Swift Rallycross Championship headed to the much loved Pembrey circuit in Wales.
Overnight rain cleared just in time for free practice and developed into bright and breezy conditions for the remainder of the day. In form Aiden Hills was looking to continue his winning streak. He was fast from the get go putting in the fastest time in heat one then to consolidate his position third place in both the second and third heats. This was enough to give him a share of the front row for the A-Final.
Hills made the best start and got the jump on the pole sitter (and championship leader) Tristan Ovenden. They were then door to door through the first corner. It was Hills that kept it flat and edged ahead into the first section of loose. He then lead the race all the way to the flag, managing to put enough space between himself and the rest of the field to take his joker lap and still come out in front, recording the fastest lap time of the day in the process.
The next round, round 7 where championships could be won! Will be held at Rallycross’ spiritual home of Lydden Hill in Kent on Bank Holiday Monday 31st August.
Aidan Hills, #8: “WOW! What a day! I really seemed to struggle in the heat and I was really unhappy with the car. After looking we saw that the sub-frame was damaged which had pushed the wheel back. We managed to straighten it and get it perfect for the final.
I seemed to get the best start in the final and went around the outside of Tristan. I then worked really hard to pull a bit of a gap, and when I came to do my joker I came out just in front of the others, leaving me two laps to keep it tidy and come home to take the win!
I’m absolutely over the moon, I really didn't expect to win after the poor pace in the heats, but a big thanks to dad for his work to get the car bang on for the final! “
