Wonder why a non race B license is enough for Rallycross? I've been looking into budget Fiesta Zetec racing at a local circuit and it asks for a Race B license.

Rallycross is classed as a speed event rather than racing - in theory you're racing against the clock. The winner of the event is the person with the quickest time in the final.

Ahaaa it makes sense now! Actually now you say that, I think that was mentioned on Top Gear.

There's a really good rallycross channel on youtube that basically covers most of the history of televised coverage of the sport. Search MrRallycross if interested.

Great isn't it, Tony's done a cracking job. Alot of the early 80's footage I found at my uncle Rob's house, next visit going to route a bit deeper, I'm sure they used to give competitors Snetterton rallycross event video's from previous meetings back then.

But isn't that also true of any racing? If you finish first, you've set the quickest time by default!

It's works differently in the heats though - the points given are spread across the heats - so you might win your heat but still only be 8th quickest from a given set of heats. So if there are 3 heats of 6 cars in theory it's possible for the fastest 6 times to come from the same heat and the winner of one heat may have set the 13th quickest time overall. The finals are a different kettle of fish as you point out - first to the flag wins.

Rather than working all that out I generally just wait until the sheet is displayed telling me which final I'm in! I think my maths teacher has a lot to answer for (although interestingly(?) my I.T. teacher was a certain Roy Gravestock, whose name is on the list of previous stock hatch champions).

I only raised the rather pernickety point because you were talking about the finals and I don't like to see you making yourself look silly, Bert...! But now you've redeemed yourself and are, in fact, correct. So well done.

And to anyone thinking about getting into rallycross: don't worry about all this slightly sad mathematical to-ing and fro-ing between myself and Bert, the main thing is that you don't need a race licence and that's good because it saves you money. Just have a go and find out where you qualify!

I'm rather good at it though

Hopefully there were plenty of first timers at Lydden today and some of them will dip a toe into the water.
