That's a great shot - I guess the rogue wheel was pretty much heading straight for you? Did you see where it ended up? (It looked like it was making its own way back to the paddock!)

Little annoyed that the shots I took as the wheel got closer didn't come out well, but at least I got a couple of usable pictures!

It passed between me and one of the mobile floodlights on the central island, ended up coming to a dead stop in the tyre wall on the outside of Paddock Bend. Bloody glad, as I was afraid it might skim that and carry on (though that section of spectator area does have the extra high fencing, so it should have been OK).

I had a few feet to spare, but a bit closer than I'd like: second time someone has thrown a wheel at me there this year!

Forgive the double post, but Derek Tohill confirmed as the 2021 British Champion.

Deserving Champion in my personal opinion.

Good that he won. Definitely wouldn't have been right if it had suddenly changed hands.

And yeah he's been so quick this year, definitely deserved the title. Every time I spoke to him he was saying he was not pushing too hard. Just wish Vitols had been more reliable in qualifying through the year. He could have really put it to O'Donovan and Tohill.

Double header on Easter Bank Holiday at Lydden will start 2022 season. Rest of the calendar hopefully soon. I'm expecting an even more impressive field next year in Supercars and Super National

I haven't read anything official, but I assume the investigation was related to the Tohill/O'Donovan incident that occurred on Saturday evening. Would have seemed hugely unfair if Tohill had got penalized for that when OOD got away with the incidents at the opening rounds.

Yeah, Vitols has been fantastic this year, but agree that it is a shame he had reliability issues as that cost him a huge amount of points. Ditto for Donnelly, he is so fast when the car is working but this year seemed pretty painful for him.

Hope Derek is back to defend the title next year. Could be a good one if we have Thorne and Jordan in the mix as well.

Absolutely - it would have been a travesty if O'Donovan had taken it in the stewards room after his dreaful driving this year.

I really hope Super National picks up again, it used to be my favourite class with some great machinery (and such a variety).

Hopefully the supercar grid will be a decent size - having lost some to the retro 4wd drive class they need a bit of a boost. But as you say there are some potential entires out there. Speaking of the retro 4wd class would Colin Ansons Ka be eligible for that? I don't know if he's still got it but it would be good to see that out again.

I love that they have a class which enables the Group B (and other classic 4WD Supercars) to run but I thought the majority of entries in this years Retro 4WD have belonged in other classes (Andy Grant in Supercar and pretty much everyone else in BTRDA clubman).

Think the cut off for the Retro 4WD this year was 1999? So I think the Ka could sneak in there?

The Imprezas and Evos are certainly BTRDA clubman cars - but I have no problem with them running in the retros too, they fit there better than supercar as they're clearly outpaced. Andy Grant is the 'dodgiest' entry but that Focus is certainly veteran car now.

2022 British Rallycross Calendar:

April 16 - Lydden Hill, England
April 18 - Lydden Hill, England
May 14 - Pembrey, Wales
May 15 - Pembrey, Wales
June 4 & 5 - Mondello Park, Ireland
July TBC - TBC (Likely Europe)
August 27 - Pembrey, Wales
August 29 - Pembrey, Wales
November 5 & 6 - Lydden Hill, England (Supercar Double header)

10 Supercar rounds and 8 or 9 rounds for support categories.



Interesting that Knockhill has been dropped. And a bit weird there is such a gap at the end of the year. 1 event a month until you have a 10 week gap. I'm looking forward to it though
