Drew Bellerby Crowned Mini RallyX Champion at Croft

Drew Bellerby Crowned Mini RallyX Champion at Croft

Racing hotshot Drew Bellerby has a new trophy on her mantlepiece today after securing the BMW Mini Rallycross Championship at Croft.

Drew’s dreams came true as she came out on top of the ultra-competitive championship.

Drew’s weekend did not get off to a great start as she could only manage a seventh-place finish in the first final.

But the Northallerton ace romped home in the second final, securing maximum points to end the season six points ahead of runner-up David Bell.

The good news didn’t end there for the FUCHS Lubricants-backed Bellerby RX team.

Steve Brown, in his rookie season in the competition, crossed the line second behind Drew in the final race of the season to finish third in the championship overall.

And Drew’s sister Paige was all smiles as well after securing second place overall in the Supernational Championship.

Sally Travis, marketing manager at FUCHS Lubricants, said: “We are so proud of the Sisters of Speed, Drew and Paige, and Steve as well.

“It is so good to see them achieving at this very high level of motorsport.

“Bellerby Motorsport is a fantastic team and we’re delighted to have been involved the journey.”
