David Binks: 2nd at Knockhill BRC
Road buddy David Binks takes a great second place at Knockhill in the penultimate round of the British Rallycross Championship in his monster Mk7 Best Buy Fiesta. After his fine run recently at Lydden Hill (see video below on blog, with ex-RC champion Marcus Gronholm), he's now one of three drivers who could take the BRC crown, just seven points behind the leader. Binks' second place was hard fought, after a spin in heat one – captured here on this video – leading to a sixth place result. But he came back to win heat two convincingly. Heat three saw the Scottish weather take effect, with a soaked track, making for difficult conditions, but Binks drove a blinder to take second place. Good luck in the final round David, at Croft... more news here soon.
