The official entry list for the fourth round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship at Lydden Hill in the UK (27-29 May) has been released by the FIA revealing 24 Supercars, 29 Super1600 entries and 10 RX Lites entries.
Alongside the 17 permanent World RX drivers, American Top Gear presenter Tanner Foust was announcedyesterday as taking part in two World RX events this season and will join the Volkswagen RX Sweden team at Lydden Hill, a circuit at which he has twice won European Rallycross Championship events in the past.
Former WRC driver and 2015 Lydden Hill World RX finalist Guy Wilks will return to the driving seat in an Olsbergs MSE run Ford Fiesta Supercar for his home round of the championship and will be hoping for a repeat of his form from last season. Record breaking five-time MSA British Rallycross Champion Julian Godfrey will also fly the flag for home drivers at the event, having recently won the fourth round of the British RX series. In another Ford Fiesta Supercar, Ireland’s Derek Tohill will make his first World RX start since Argentina 2014, now driving for his own team, a fortnight after racing in the first round of Euro RX in Belgium (this weekend).
Former British Junior Rallycross Champion Kevin Hansen will return to one of the circuits he is most familiar with in the World RX calendar, driving for the Peugeot Hansen Academy team alongside France’s Davy Jeanney. World RX Team Austria owner Max Pucher is also entered for the event in one of the team’s Ford Fiestas.
The Lydden Hill event also plays host to the second round of the FIA European Rallycross Championship for Super1600, which is currently led by Portugal’s Mario Barbosa, and the third round of the RX Lites Cup. Current British Rallycross Championship leader and 2015 RX Talent Search finalist Dan Rooke will make his debut in the single-make category.
