Six titles the aim for F400 champ Griffiths

In Aintree, Darley Moor, News, PDMCC

THREE Sisters ace Tony Griffiths isn’t just looking to defend four championships in 2019 – he wants to end next year with six.

And he’s in for a busy season of travel with three different clubs on his calendar, along with his maiden appearance competing at the Aberdare Park Road Races.

Griffiths banked the PDMCC Formula 400 and Forgotten Era titles at Three Sisters this year, but wants to add a third after missing out on the 500 Open crown as Andy Jackson took the crown.

Along with his exploits at Preston, he’s also plotting a return to Aintree to defend his F400 title and redeem his Forgotten Era 500cc GP runner-up finish to eventual champ Phil Millard.

It won’t stop there, either, as he’s planning to add to the madness with Darley Moor action as he bids to defend his Formula Darley championship crown.

And although he knows he has a busy year in the works, he’s excited to get going and even head to some new tracks if time allows.

“I’m looking to retain my PDMCC, Aintree and Darley titles and win the ones I finished runner-up in this year,” he told UK Clubsport.

“I’ll also be racing at Aberdare Park for the first time as I’ve only just got my national licence, then if we get any spare weekends hopefully we can do a few meetings with the Wirral 100 Club at Anglesey.

“I’ve only been racing three years and I’ve won eight championships and five runner-up finishes, so I’m hoping to keep the momentum going to make next year as good as this one.”
