Interesting development. As you say it raises the question what, if anything, the Dorans will be doing this year.

This might also be a relevant addition to the 2017 British Rallycross thread as well...

Ha. I just scrolled down and found the closest thing to British rallycross. Miss can move it at their discretion!

Shame to see Bellerby step back, do we know if Grint is back for this season? Also I'm sure I saw Simon Horton had the Subaru up for sale - so can we assume he won't be out either?

This is interesting though:

Didn't see that one coming!

Wow. Big news. He's quite useless as a driver isn't he? His results in BTCC aren't great. Still, best of luck and hope he has good reliability.

The Dorans are quickly running out of cars, how many more do they have!?

He spent a lot of last season in the gravel so he should be ok on the loose sections

Liam in Retro in an RS200?

Haha, that's brutally honest!

Interesting that the article mentions the DS3 is one previously used by Liam. The Dan Rooke car was ex-Bakkerud, so does that mean that Warren Scott will be using the World car used by Liam?

With Jake Harris in one DS3 (I think the inline car), Scott in another and Nathan Heathcote in the C4, I think that leaves just one DS3? Maybe for Pat?

EDIT: This article on the British Rallycross site clearly states it's the ex-Rooke car, so at the very least Liam's old World car is still spare.

One of the articles (Lyddens website?) says that Heathcote is starting the season in the C4 but will probably switch to a DS3. So unless it's a direct swap with Pat (so Pat starts in the DS3 and swaps to the C4) then that's unlikely I'd have thought.

So Liam in an RS200 in the British Championship and Pat in an RS200 in the Retros? The more RS200's the better

That might make sense. Liam currently has a DS3 in the US which I'm pretty sure is the car that Liam last used in the World Championship (and at the GP last year). It was shipped out to the US for "Doonies 3", so perhaps Heathcote will be getting that once it's back in the UK?

Heathcote must have significantly upped his budget for 2017!

I haven't checked the 2017 rules, but the 2016 regulations still made mention of Group B cars, so I think they are still permitted. Liam seems to have a lot of time for the older cars, so it seems like something he might do...

...or perhaps I'm barking up the wrong tree! Possibility of Liam to Pikes Peak as well?

There's anotare announcement ok rallycrossbrx sure. A former motocross rider, Oliver Bennett, will race an OMSE fiesta. He's had rally experience too so expect decent things if the car is well put together.

My earlier pessimism seems to be premature

Any news on Procter, Godfrey, Grint, Hill, others?!

I think those listed above are those that have made official announcements about competing this season - everyone else is a TBC at the minute!
