Briton Guy Wilks to join Lydden Hill’s World RX of Great Britain in May

Created on Wednesday, 01 Mar 2017 17:06:21

Britain’s Guy Wilks will join the line-up at Lydden Hill’s World RX of Great Britain after announcing his plans to contest all 12 rounds of the 2017 FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy.  The two-time British Rally Champion and ex-WRC driver will compete in reigning vice-champion Johan Kristoffersson’s Volkswagen RX Polo Supercar. 

Wilks has previously competed in five World RX events, including in 2015, reaching the final at Lydden where a puncture denied him a spot on the podium.

“To get an opportunity to do a full World Championship is something I've always wished for,” explained an elated Wilks, who will enter as an independent entry and be backed by energy drink LOCO. 

The 36-year-old added: “To compete in a car that finished second in the Championship last year adds pressure but is the ingredient that can make it realistic for me to mix it at the top, even though the bar in World RX is getting raised year on year.

“I want to thank LOCO energy drink and Marc Blackburn for this opportunity - he saw me drive at Lydden and Lohéac in 2015 and believed in me from the start. I'm going to give it absolutely everything to prove his beliefs and my own, and we want to put ourselves up against the best. There's still a lot of work to do but 2017 is going to be an awesome journey!”
