Birchall will again use his Lofthouse Freelander which is powered by a BMW M3 engine. The engine has been rebuilt after suffering major damage at the final round of last season.
“We’ve had to rebuild the engine and we’ve also had new rear suspension fitted,” said Birchall. “Jonny Koonja, who drove in the BCCC last year and co-drove Dan Lofthouse to the title in 2013, will co-drive for me.”
“We’re aiming to build on the win I got at round one last season and keeping it tight and tidy, hopefully we’ll be a position to challenge for the title and have a good season.”
