WRX: JRM drop Canada

Category: News, WRX Posted 28.07.16 14:57 by

JRM Racing have pulled out of the upcoming World Rallycross of Canada event, as they continue their search for a suitable replacement for dropped British driver Liam Doran.


With just a week to go until the seventh round of the 2016 FIA World Rallycross Championship, JRM racing have confirmed that despite having all their cars and equipment sent across the Atlantic to Canada, they will not feature at the event.




JRM terminated their 2016 agreement with British driver Liam Doran ten days ago, then confirming that the termination had already come into effect; meaning that Liam’s final appearance with the team was at the World RX of Sweden on 1-3 July 2016.

It was expected that American Danny Way would drive at the event, having confirmed back in April, before the Doran’s exit that he would join JRM Racing for the second half of the 2016 WRX season to compete with a JRM Mini RX Supercar from round seven at the Circuit Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières.

Speaking in April:

“I’m super hyped that after a long 5 year journey, my relentless ambition to prove my ability to drive a Rallycross Supercar has finally paid off. I have just signed with JRM Racing to drive the JRM Mini Rallycross Supercar for the second half of the 2016 FIA World Rallycross Championship,” revealed Way.

“We will prepare for a full 12 rounds in 2017. My first race will be round 7 in Montreal, Canada on August 5th at the Circuit Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières.”

Despite this JRM have confirmed that the team will return for the highly coveted Lohéac event in September.
