Colchester, Vermont – July 31, 2018
American rallycross driver Conner Martell will have a busy upcoming weekend jumping between cars and series at the Grand Pre de Trois-Rivieres. Martell will be competing in both the RX2 International series and the Americas Rallycross ARX2 series in Canada.
Martell will be piloting his RX2 lites car run by Team Faren and then jumping into his ARX2 lites car run by DirtFish Rally School. The format of the races will have Martell virtually getting out of one car and into another in hopes of bringing home a podium spot to follow his dominating win at the inaugural Dirtfish Circuit of The Americas ARX2 race on July, 14th. Martell is also excited to announce that he will be competing in the remainder of the Americas Rallycross Championship in his ARX2 car run by DirtFish Rally School which will bring him back to a double-header at the Circuit of Americas at the end of September.
“I’m really looking forward to working with both teams; having the opportunity to race in two series on the same weekend and continue my hunt for a championship in both series is something i’ve always dreamt of.”
Martell will be surrounded by a large amount of ‘home town’ fans as Trois-Rivieres, Quebec is just a few hours drive from Martell’s hometown of Colchester, Vermont.
“Having all my closest friends and family at this race will be amazing, I really can’t wait to have a full-send kind of weekend in addition to getting all the extra seat time, I am looking to put on a show and shoot for the top podium spot!”
Martell’s confidence is high after a dominating win at the inaugural ARX2 race at the Circuit of The Americas two weeks ago, coupled with a podium finish at the Silverstone round of the RX2 International Series in May.
