Gamble made a fantastic British Rallycross debut at the weekend, where he finished a very credible 2nd place in the Super 1600 category, a result he is over the moon with after gong into the event completely blind.

The Kumho Tyres backed driver lead the S1600 final from the start, beating front runner and main rival; Craig Lomax, until the car developed an engine fault caused by overheating, but he still managed to clinch a brilliant 2nd place in the event in the Jam Motorsport ran Suzuki Swift.

Mark’s comments:
“It was a positive weekend, I learnt a lot, I underestimated Rallycross, and how nerve racking it is lining up next to your rivals, compared to the format of rallying. The car was fantastic, but I changed tyre compound for the final, which was a great move and I was beating the regulars, leading the race, until the engine went into security mode loosing all power. But I’m over the moon to come away with 2nd in a sport that is brand new to me. I enjoyed and relished the challenge, and would like to come back for another go sometime, but at the moment rallying is my main priority.”
