Lydden Hill Race Circuit will host adrenalin-filled action as round five of the Motorsport UK British Rallycross Championship returns for its second visit of the season – the traditional August Bank Holiday event on Monday 26th.
Children 13 and under enter free to enjoy action packed programme of racing, the debut of truck rallcyross and free childrens entertainment including the chance to meet Jurassic George. Locally sourced street food, bars, show trucks and cars along with displays from the Kent Youth Trials will continue the entertainment off circuit.
600bhp four-wheel-drive Supercars that accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than two seconds will be the lead attraction at the ‘home of rallycross’, where over 60 four and six lap races will be held through the day. Former European Rallycross Champion Derek Tohill and five time British Rallycross Champion Julian Godfrey are tied for the lead of the Supercar points before the visit to the famous Lydden Hill circuit, but a range of local drivers will compete across the classes.
The weekend will also include races for the Retro Rallycross Championship, providing blast from the past action for cars used through the over 50 years of rallycross (up to the end of 1991), with local interest coming from Ashford’s Terry Moore in a Morris Mini and Hastings’ Ray Morgan in a Ford Escort BDA.
The Bank Holiday event will also include a demonstration of the new 700bhp DAF–CF rallycross truck that is planned for Lydden Hill and Trucksport UK’s new Truck Rallycross initiative for 2020, launched last week.
The new rallycross truck has already been tested at MIRA and was displayed at Donnington Park last weekend, but the Lydden Hill British Rallycross event will be the first time it has been seen in its new environment.
