Dubliner, Derek Tohill has been crowned FIA European Touring Car Rallycross RX Champion following his victory at the PS Racing Center at Greinbach, in Austria over the weekend (Sept 14 – 15).
Tohill has added the FIA European Touring Car Rallycross RX Championshop to his Division 2 victory in the European Rallycross Championship in 2010.
This year the quiet and unassuming Dubliner drove a special Swedish-built 2.0 litre Ford Fiesta with rear-wheel-drive. On track Derek is by no means the quiet man in the tough ‘contact sport’ of rallycross.
Tohill is director of the Dublin company Parts for Cars with outlets in Rathgar, Kylemore Road and Blanchardstown. The rallycross car carries the decals of Teng Tools, Millers Oils and Dublin Hampers. Derek’s father George Tohill has competed in rallycross for many years, and works out of the Rathgar depot.
