What better way to spend the bank holiday than sitting on the sunny hills at Lydden and witnessing the sixth round of the sensational MSA British Rallycross Championship, as the sport returns to its spiritual home this Monday.
With 87 cars waiting to cross the start line and battle for podium top spots, you can be sure the day will be jam-packed with high-rev, turbo-charged, track tearing entertainment.
Currently leading the Championship is Citroen DS3 Supercar driver Dan Rooke, in what is his maiden season, who will be looking to repeat his first place finish at the last round in Belgium, and replicate his round two win back in March, by ruling Lydden once again. But, his current reign could come to an end, as there is, as always, fierce competition waiting at the start line to take the track title, from such drivers as 2015, and five time, champion Julian Godfrey, who currently sits in second place in the series.
Also on the British RX bill is the MSA Junior Rallycross Championship, where points leader Sam Jones will be aiming to repeat this double-victory performance from the last time the series visited Lydden, and increase his slim championship lead. Joining the junior pack, making his rallycross debut, will be one-to-watch 14-year old Morgan Wroot, making the crossover from a successful start in karting.
The RX150 Rallycross Championship will be joined by 20-year old Liverpudlian Kirk Langley, making his debut, competing against eight other drivers, all fighting to be the first buggy over the line.
And if that’s not enough, another debut on the day is Monster athlete, drift star and Lydden regular Luke Woodham, who will be switching setups for his first taste of competitive rallycross racing in the Swift Sport Rallycross Championship.
Make the most of the extra day off and get yourself to Lydden Hill for what will be a raging rallycross bank holiday bonanza. Don’t miss out, book your tickets now...
