Realish Rally Championship 2.0 Round 4 – USA – Results

Mark Gormley secured a second successive Realish Rally Championship 2.0 win at the fourth round in the USA, narrowly beating championship rival Lazaros Filippakos. The two were almost neck-and-neck for much of the rally, with stage 3 being decided by less than 1 second, before the Irishman pulled away to a 22 second lead in the final two stages. Mark Singleton was once again on the podium to all-but secure the Teams Championship for Bad Pun Racing.

Neil Heatlie and Allie Ferrie finished in the same positions they finished in Argentina in 4th and 5th, respectively. However, with the dominance of the top two, defending rally champion Heatlie is now mathematically out of contention for the championship. Campbell Wallis slipped to 6th after a poor final stage, but still ahead of the two Random Racing team mates, Matthew Wheeler and Chris Williamson. With only eleven cars entered and three retirements, all the finishers scored points.

The two main contenders are once again level on points with two rounds to run. The next round in Spain starts on Wednesday, 11th March 2020. Full championship details are available on the championship page and the Realish Racing Forums.
