British Rallycross Championship gearing up for return to Lydden Hill

The Toyo Tires Motorsport UK British Rallycross Championship will roar back into life after its mid-season break at Lydden Hill this coming Bank Holiday Monday (August 26) with Derek Tohill and Julian Godfrey tied on points at the summit of the standings.

With three events already in the books, the adrenaline-fuelled series returns to the spiritual home of the sport in Kent for what is set to be a blockbuster race day of sideways thrills and spills.

Since the Silverstone season-opener, nothing has been able to separate Tohill and Godfrey towards the sharp end of the field – with neither of them able to break away from the other at the summit of the standings.

Tallying two wins apiece, the Ford Fiesta duo have been the cream of the crop so far and will undoubtedly be in the mix for outright honours at Lydden Hill.

Beyond the top two however are a host of front-running contenders that are all aiming to challenge for the top step of the podium as well. Former champion Ollie O’Donovan has endured a frustrating campaign to-date but the the Irishman can never be discounted.

Roger Thomas debuted his new Ford Fiesta last time out and will look to further improve whilst the likes of Steve Hill, Andy Grant and Simon Horton are all chasing silverware in their respective machines too.

Although the Toyo Tires Motorsport UK British Rallycross Championship will take centre stage at the home of rallycross, a bumper supporting bill will also be in action over the course of the day to set the pulses of those in attendance racing.

The Motorsport UK Junior Rallycross Championship, Motorsport UK Supernational Rallycross Championship, BMW Mini Rallycross Championship, Swift Sport Rallycross Championship, RX150 Championship and Retro Rallycross Championship will all feature in entertaining fashion.
