(23rd August, 2023) –
Tony Lynch, driving his Lucas Oil-sponsored Team Geriatric Toyota MR2, secured the 2023 Retro Rallycross Championship at the Pembrey Circuit in Wales last weekend, with two rounds to go.
Three heat wins out of three booked his place on pole position for the final run-off, on Day 1, which was combined with racers from the faster Super Retro class. He secured a comfortable class win and took third place in the race.
He followed a similar racing pattern on Day 2, winning all three heats, only to hit trouble when the all-important final run-off came around. Running on reduced power, he finished back in third but it was enough to wrap-up the title.
"To win the British Retro class for the second year in a row is reward for the hard work that the team has put in,” said Tony.

Dan Morgan, sales and operations director for Lucas Oil said:
“It’s been a successful partnership. Since becoming a Lucas Oil-sponsored driver, Tony’s track record includes:
Tony will race in the faster Super Retro class in 2024.
