Has anybody seen an entry list for the proposed Lydden Winter Rallycross this Saturday?

The meeting is still going ahead as they have the Fireworks display that was postponed from last weekend due to the bad weather after the racing finished. The entry list should be out tomorrow from what Lydden have said.

Where have they said it? I haven't seen any updates on the Website or social media since the events were first announced. They really don't help themselves sometimes.

They (Lydden Hill) replied to a message that geordiecriag101 posted on Facebook Bert, I saw the post appear in my timeline a few days ago and commented on it: will try and find it later but the post said Thursday evening or Friday morning for an entry list.

Not sure there is really the enthusiasm for a winter series in the UK at the moment.

Has anybody seen an entry list, is the timetable as advertised before the fireworks were added, 10:30am to 4pm?

I haven't seen one yet. I have seen three drivers say they are going on Facebook and that's it so far.

Think I'll try and call the circuit first thing in the morning before setting off.

Forgive the double post, but the entry list appeared late last night:

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...35955316415468

Just over 20 cars in attendance. As much as I want to support the event, its a long journey for me to see 20ish cars.

Fingers crossed the December meet gets a better turnout, as that's a bit further into the off season (and doesn't clash with a WRX weekend either).

I fail to see the point in all honesty.

Hopefully the entry for the second proposed date in december will be a better showing. As for the reason behind the winter series, I would take a pot shot at this being Lydden Hill having a few smaller events to get used to running and organising an event by them selfs as they will have to do next year being the newly awarded championship organisers. THis whole winter series was never mentioned by either the out going organisers (BARC) or the BTRDA but only by Lydden Hill.

Sounds like a decent reason, plus I wonder if they're keen to go down the line of a venue like Santa Pod which runs 'something' virtually every weekend. Certainly can't argue with whatever Keith Bartlett is doing as it's obviously working, given how much SP were able to spend on relaying the track recently.

Not a great comparison.

You can't really offer a cheap run what yer bring type thing at a rallycross track.

And they do a lot of drifting etc there aswell. F1 teams used to test there, all sorts of things are done there.

Plus it is the only true drag racing track in the UK and they run events for all kinds of things like Jap cars, Ford, bikes, VW, that are long established, or used to run at places like Silverstone, most of them have found a better home at Santa Pod.

But it the core of drag racing, and that taps into road cars aswell as race, and bikes, hence why it runs stuff every weekend.

Something you could only do at Lydden if you ran track days, race meetings every weekend, and I doubt they can do that for noise reasons.

I'm not making a comparison, just wondering if that's what Lydden are trying (they always seem to be pushing various trackdays and drifting stuff most weekends).

Not saying it IS what they're doing, that it would work or even that they should, just that I wonder if they're looking at doing it on the basis that people through the gate earns money.

I've not seen this mentioned, but there was a full electric Rx car running at Lydden, see what you think.

So did anyone go? I opted for Brands instead as I did at least know what was happening there. If they can get an entry list out a bit sooner for the next one they I might pop down.
