Bit of a thread bump, Silverstone just put a pic up on their facebook page showing the start of the RX circuit construction. Looks like it will be on the infield around by the stowe short circuit.

OK spent about half an hour perusing the rallycross track at Silverstone today as the WEC sessions were going on.

Good news is it is going to be mostly dirt.

Bad news, there is a big US or Franciacorta style jump, and a very tight joker lap like Estering a real tight left and right.

Start line looks separate but I think as it is on the Stowe circuit, the circuit are trying really hard to not get any dirt on their moneymaking area which is the Stowe circuit where you attend training days experience days etc. (such a con as it is sold that you are supposed to be at Silverstone when in reality you are on a tiny track in the facility)

I can't yet work out where the transition is from the startline onto the dirt unless the track is anti clock, but if they are going anti clock then the jump is wrong as it is shallow entry side and steep the other, so it must be going the other way round.

I reckon seriously 70% on dirt, it is hard packed yellow sandy dirt, and at the moment the track is lined with piles of dirt and the mud they used to trench out the track, whether this stays I don't know, but I expect so as it lines the track and prevents the cars digging up grass and going onto the Stowe surface.

For those that know SIlverstone Stowe, the top hairpin looks like being used as the only tar part I can see, there is a transition before, then that tight right hairpin and then an immediate turn right onto dirt and into the jump, I think the start is alongside this where the pits are, (makes sense due to timing).

As I say, the bit I don't get is were the startline transitions onto the dirt, unless they are starting on dirt! Or they are starting behind the Stow hairpin.

Those WEC's are seriously quick, I saw them last year for the first time in the flesh in Spa. How was the Jumbo car doing?

Chunder beet me too it, was having a look around that part as well today and the one thing that surprised me was how small and tight the layout looked, also were will the spectator viewing be?
Here's a few pics to show what Chunder described:

In qualifying 10th out of 12 cars. Lammers 5 seconds slower than pole, Van Eerd 9 seconds slower than pole...

Rallycross layouts on racing circuits are always tight and the tracks in overall tends to be really bad. The jumps are even messed up. How hard is it to build or at least design a decent track?

They designed the Rallysprint so well back in 97. Why can't they do the same for a Rallyx circuit?

No idea where the start is, I think bottom left as that is towards the new Wellingtonish area of Silverstone. Or to the right of the gravel transition where the joker runde is. Bit opposite the building is the jump, its fairly big.

But as you can see not much tarmac, it's a lot bigger than this pic makes it look.

AS for viewing I think behind that stand you see in the foreground and probably in the mowed area behind the the northern most parts of the track will be likely big stands. But I think more like Mettet sadly where you are penned in and can see an overall view rather than being close. That is utter shite for me.
