J'can driver Fraser McConnell set for Nitro Rallycross final
MCCONNELL...getting used to the electric race car was a steep learning curve while competing in a traditional combustion engine supercar

JAMAICAN Fraser McConnell will compete this weekend in the grand finale of the 2022/23 Nitro Rallycross Series.

McConnell will contest the final over three action-packed rounds on Friday, March 17, Saturday, March 18, and Sunday, March 19. With a triple-header to complete the 10-event series many Championship points are at stake.

McConnell's teammate Robin Larsson enters the final in 1st place. The two-time race winner has finished on the podium in all but one championship round this season. On the previous visit to Glen Helen on October 29 and 30, Larsson had to settle for second behind a dominant McConnell.

Fraser McConnell was unbeatable on the Glen Helen track, dominating qualifying before completing a weekend clean sweep.

He is currently in third place in the Ccampionship, 10 points behind European Rallycross Champion Andreas Bakkerud.

Dubbed the flying Jamaican, returning to the site of his finest hour opens the door for a real late surge for the championship crown.

Fraser is looking forward to the final event in California.

"It has been a long and exciting season that started way back in June last year in England. Initially, getting used to the electric race car was a steep learning curve while competing in a traditional, combustion engine supercar.

"However, I am very comfortable with the FC1 and look forward to closing the season with a strong performance," he was quoted as saying.
