World Rallycross R4 - Mettet, Belgium

Looking forward to this event. For the last few years we've bought a weekend ticket but only gone for the day (Sunday only).

This year we can only do the same but am thinking of risking it and buying a ticket on the gate on the Sunday morning (rather than a full weekend ticket). Anyone got any experience of this? Don't want to drive all the way to Belgium and not being able to get in! Advice appreciated

Long way to go for 1 day. Well be there both days. Sad the ERX isn't there but a full support of other classes should make it interesting.

No ERX

That makes the decision very easy then.

Yup. The biggest event on the calendar will be Loheac. WRX, ERX, s1600 and RX2. Could be as many as 110 entries!

But Mettet should be good and if RX2 will have the level of interest that people are suggesting , I think we could see as many as 90 cars there. Which would be very nice (conservative estimate of 72 races over the weekend).

I meeting with tens of thousands of peopel attending is not really my bag, and travelling alone is not much fun at events like that.

Oh for the rallycross trust and coach trips

IMO Belgium will be a waste for people in Great Britain. Same as Lydden is for European, lots of travel costs for half the Super Cars. Much better going to Höljes or Loheac.

Being 5mins away from eurotunnel it's quicker for me to get to Mettet than Pembrey or Croft. Would love to do Loheac again, not sure the wife will allow it a week before baby due date tho. Maybe next year, when Silverstone and Mettet will be similar travel times!

“We will race effectively the same car as Sebastien Loeb, this is great,” continued Duval. “

No sure about that Francois.

Duval and a Belgian round seems to go hand in hand.

So let´s hope other drivers don´t get disqualified again to make Duval taking part in the final...

Well, it looks just like it if you squint a little...

I noticed lap times seem to continue tumbling, so it almost looks like the factory supported cars are getting faster and faster. I wonder how long private teams will be able to keep up.

They do not need to keep up, they are not even a part of the same championship, never race together and have their own championship.

This is what IMG wanted, private separate from factory. Hence why they are hardly shown on the tv show and their highlights are just dumped on youtube as are the S1600 and rwd races.
