Tohill and FIA title winning TouringCar reunited for Autosport International Show

Posted: January 12, 2017 3:39 PM

Two-time FIA European Rallycross TouringCar Champion Derek Tohill will be reunited with the Ford Fiesta that he raced to a brace of European crowns this weekend, as car and driver perform to a packed audience at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham (January 12 - 15).

The 2016 Irish Rallycross Champion will drive the rear-wheel drive Fiesta in the Live Action Arena as part of a celebration of the 50th anniversary of rallycross, along with a plethora of iconic names from the history of the sport, including the most successful British and Irish Rallycross Championship racer ever, Dermot Carnegie, in a Ford Fiesta Supercar.

Tohill graduated from the Irish scene with multiple Stock Hatch titles under his belt to the FIA European Rallycross championship in the Group N (Division 2) category in 2008, claiming his first victory in Poland. He took a sabbatical in 2009 while Ingvar Gunnarsson Motorsport built the rear-wheel drive Fiesta. Third place in its maiden outing in Portugal began the 2010 campaign well, and eight podiums, including wins in the UK, Belgium and Germany, paved the way for Tohill to secure the title in a final round decider in the Czech Republic, with a fourth victory.

The Irish driver finished third and second overall in 2011 and 2012, before winning four rounds of the series in 2013 to secure the title for the second time at the penultimate round in Austria.

Now a front-running Supercar racer in European and Irish rallycross, Tohill will be reunited with the PFCRX TouringCar Fiesta for the indoor performance, where over 30,000 people are expected to see the action over the four days.

Derek Tohill | Driver | Ford Fiesta #111

"I have been attending the Autosport International Show ever since I started competing in motorsport, many years ago. When I first attended the show I used to always look forward to visiting the Live Action Arena, just to watch Dermot Carnegie and his Ford Focus rallycross Supercar.

It will be a real honour to share the stage with Dermot and lots of the other rallycross legends, for whom I have so much respect. It will really be nice to be in the driving seat again in our rear-wheel drive TouringCar (SOL) which gave all of us so many great memories and so much success.

It's a special car and it will be fantastic to drive her again in England, in front of so many people."
