LOMAX GETS NEW ENERGY FOR TITLE CHASE
Pontefract based Craig Lomax has gained yet another new sponsor for 2017, YOUTHENERGY drinks have joined the XtremeRX team for this upcoming season. YOUTHENERGY have shown a high level of interest in the rallycross scene and the exposure that it offers to them as a new up and coming brand of energy drink. Both XtremeRX and YOUTHENERGY hope this is the beginning of a successful long-term relationship.
“The partnership is definitely exciting," said Craig Lomax, "YOUTHENERGY are a very passionate bunch of people who work hard to promote their brand. We are both excited to get the season underway. It’s been a long winter of late nights getting the car and its new developments sorted so the energy drinks have been going down a treat, I just need to perform at the top of my game to prove to YOUTHENERGY that myself and my team were the right team to invest in”. The new livery is to be revealed during the North West Stages Rally in Blackpool on 24th/25th February where the car will be on show in the rally village as a representative of British Rallycross. Make sure you keep an eye on the teams social media for updates and the big reveal if you’re not lucky enough to make it along to the event.

Craig, along with his team, went on to develop the Saxo into an MSA British stock hatch Championship winning car.
On his way to success, Craig has not only developed a winning car but developed his own driving ability, he is now capable of racing against the best the RX world can offer.

His second came the year after when Craig jumped up a category after buying a S1600 Citroen C2. The team has continued to develop the C2 over the last two seasons.
