Gregg Motorsport reveal BXCC plans

Gregg Motorsport have revealed that they are planning on contesting the BXCC series this season.

Driver Ian Gregg is intending on bringing out the new DJM RZR and the events will be used to test and shakedown the car.

Gregg is a main dealer for Polaris Sports and Leisure and he has been successfully competing in the Polaris RZR, pictured above, for several years.

Gregg commented: "The new DJM RZR has been designed with a purpose-built chassis for racing in France and European Rallye Raid events. The chassis is fitted with tried and tested Polaris suspension and the car runs the Polaris turbocharged engine also. The BXCC events will give us a great opportunity to test the new car in competition, I'm looking forward to an exciting year!"

Regulations for the BXCC are expected to be announced soon and the championship will start at Walters Arena in South Wales in early April.
