YOUNG Bushmills kart racing champion, Ben McFall, says that moving over to Rallycross in 2019 is one of the options he is currently considering.
The brother of Bobby Joe McFall - last year’s Honda Cadet Championship winner - clinched the Rotax Mini Max title at Kirkistown recently.
In one of the most fiercely contested rounds of the competition, Ben took the chequered flag in both the pre-final and final races in County Down.
While victory in the pre-final was a relatively straightforward affair for the thirteen-year-old, Peadar O’Boyle and Pearse Murtagh pushed him all the way in the closing race of the season.
The three-way fight saw Ben eventually cross the finish line seven hundredths of a second clear of Murtagh, with O’Boyle less than half-a-second behind in third.
It was Ben’s fourth victory in all the races he started in 2018, and the seventh time he paid a visit to the podium on his Straid Concrete 125cc kart.
