That is Rosie, it had a new wrap for the weekend. I understand it is doing an event or two like that then going back to the Q8 colours.

Glad to hear - she looks a lot better in the Q8 colours - I'm not a fan of that Monster scheme.

Do they enforce track limits at the chicane? If you push your luck there it usually ends badly anyway!

I wasn't keen when I saw it first thing on Saturday, but I had warmed to it by the end of the day (though I still much prefer the Q8 and Hydrex liveries on that car!).

The car ran with black wheels on Monday which I thought looked better. Alas the front differential failed in Q1 before I could get any decent pictures of the car in action!

I was sure they had penalized there before for cars going four wheels off? I hope they don't, as seeing cars come flying through there is one of the best bits of the circuit.

Very true though, the Supercars and a handful of others can get away with big cuts there but, like you say, it tends to end badly for most!

Taken From the Irish Rallycross Facebook page.

“Due to ongoing Covid travel restrictions the 5 Nations British Rallycross Championship won't be travelling across the water to join us on 10th & 11th of July in Mondello Park We are working to reschedule their visit and will keep you all informed as soon as we have news on a new date.”

BRX could join a different Irish RX round but ignoring the August event all the IRX rounds take place 1 week before or after a BRX round. Doubt many will want to have back to back events especially when one is an overseas trip. Mondello can't really move their rallycross dates. Hopefully something can be sorted.

Pembrey isn't certain yet either. All events till June have been cancelled or postponed. Welsh government still hating on motorsport because it's so hard to socially distance at a race circuit. I hear they're practically the size of cupboards. Pembrey is probably easier to reschedule though.

Yeah, that's the one. Used by Bryntesson prior to Thorne.

Highlights from round 1 were on BT Sport at the weekend - fairly patchy coverage really (the drone shots were awful - very jerky) and I'm not sure why they didn't show the second semi-final for the supercars? Good drive by Vitols to win the supercar final though I thought - just got his head down and got on with it. Super retro looked to be the best class out there in terms of numbers and variety.

I am pretty sure the first version of the final video the Championship put out on Facebook was like that? Sure the second edit of the final had much smoother drone footage? (will have to double check that)

It was a great drive from Vitols on the Saturday. Did a double take when Ollie slotted in behind after the joker: I was sure Roberts was yet to joker!

Yeah, the 4WD Retro class wasn't great and the "regular" Retro numbers weren't that high, but Super Retro had a really good field.

I watched the round 2 highlights last night - Ollie O'Donovan needs to sort himself out, he very nearly caused a huge a accident for Andy Scott coming down the hill, awful driving. I saw the comments in this thread about his driving and I can see what you mean now!

Bloke has been a berk for many years, think he has a God given right to winning as he is rich and spend a fortune. He is not that good, and never has been.

About time someone took him out to be honest, might teach him a lesson or two.
