That was my point, I do not really have the interest to know much about retro rallycross, it's been a bit samey for years now, but obviously if I attend meetings I see this RS200 around but rarely see it run, and then I see Gibbo's name on it, so presume he must have bought it and plans to run it.

I looked into the Evo200 a couple of years ago. I don't want to be unfair but, based on what I have been told, I think the car would struggle against the Retro field.

I've not seen this posted anywhere else - Lydden have got their planning application approved:

That's got to be good news for the future of the circuit.

AS said in other places, I can not see much justification for building it quite honestly.

What is there that warrants a new building, other than removing what is there, which is fair enough I suppose.

They have zero big meetings there anymore?

I think it is hoped that improving the circuit facilities might change that.

I don't think it was the sole factor, but a lack of improvement/modernization of the track facilities was one of reasons why the World Championship departed Lydden.

With these improvements there is hope that Lydden can win European/World competition back.

Maybe to try and get some stuff back? WRX didn't stay because of poor facilities. Also they could rent it as office/meeting space outside of race weekends

I very much doubt the facilities were the real issue with Lydden, that was a smokescreen.. It has now become clear that IMG basically ran the Silverstone events, promoted them etc, so they were always going to move there no matter what Lydden did.

I am not sure if they might have even funded the circuit build although i doubt it. But it also became clear when they dumped the event that they had to hire the whole venue, a considerable cost obviously and the obvious reason behind the insane early ticket prices etc and the main reason it fell on its arse.

Lydden cannot really host anything beyond clubman level due to the track size, layout and lack of pitlane etc. it never has been able to really. Maybe trucks? Sidecars or something, but nothing big, maybe not even 750MC, the place just isn't big enough

Rallycross is about as big as it could get and yes it might come back, Silverstone seems to be gone forever, despite the track being reaonable and the site itself being far superior.

Mark Donnelly confirmed to run in Supercars this year. Post on Facebook says he will be driving a LDM DS3, although the accompanying image is of a C4 (with Pat driving).

Mark seemed to get up to speed pretty quickly when he drove the C4 at the Titans round last year, so he could be competitive this year.

Be good to add Tohill, Procter and a few others to that list. But is a promising start for February!

Derek definitely gave Godfrey a run for his money last year, so it would be great to see him back.

Ditto for Procter: as long as he brings better luck this year!

Andy Scott now confirmed to drive an Albatec 208 (the last 208 they have left?).

That's good news - the 208 is a good looking car and should be competitive.

The supercar field is looking reasonably healthy - I assume Andy Grant and Steve Mundy will be around as well? Anyone heard anything from Simon Horton? Whilst on the subject of Subarus - whatever happened to Kevin McCann?

I believe Kevin was on the list to appear as part of the rallycross contingent at Autosport earlier this year, but the car wasn't ready in time.

Hopefully his GR Impreza will make its (long overdue) first appearance in the BTRDA Championship this year.

That's excellent news, it'll be good to see that car in action (finally!).
