Hopefully the entry list will be out before the weekend. There seems to be more interest from the drivers on Facebook, so hopefully enough cars to make it worth the drive.

It's going to depend on the strength of the entry whether I make the trip or not - hopefully it'll be well supported, the winter rounds are generally good fun.

I was looking forward to going depending on entry but once again work going to be calling so a no go. There dose seam to be a bit more interest from teams so hopefully will be a good turn out.


From the regulations that were put out before the first round the catogries max entries are below:


Category Maximum Entry
4wd 12
2wd up to 1600cc 12
2wd above 1600cc 12
Classic & Retro 10
Juniors 10


If the get to fill those enteries it would be a great days racing.

Those numbers would definitely be enough to justify the drive: though I already have racing withdrawal, so just half those will probably be enough to get me to Lydden!

As you say, the withdrawals are already setting in, local banger meeting doesn't quite tick the right box although it's better than nothing - looks like a two and half hour trip for me coming up!

Entry list now up:



Was hoping for some more cars in 4WD, but should be enough cars to give some racing in the other classes.

Lydden wasn't as cold as I thought it was going to be! Some close racing (particularly the Juniors) although attrition seemed quite high. Good to have the winter series back again.

Temperature seemed to really drop after three, but was better than I was expecting as well!

Agree with regards to the rate of attrition: was hoping to see more of the Retro field make it to the Super Final. Some good races though and great to have a bit of motorsport this late in the year again.

The blue Fiesta from the modified class was strong all day and really challenged the Belgian Escort in the final until a drive shaft broke although the driver didn't seem too disappointed after the race. The BMW was great entertainment throughout the day, how the car stands up to that amount of punishment is amazing.

It's my first visit to Lydden this year and I was impressed with the general appearance of the venue, it's certainly improved over the past few years.

Shame for Fred, he was really flying in the Super Final: I assume it was his excursion over the grass that broke the driveshaft?

Was hoping to see a bit more of John Cross, I know it's not a genuine Stratos, but I still think its a cracking car. I have never seen Vince on track and not be entertaining. His BMW is probably the plainest looking car on the grid, but he always drives it flat out.

Was wondering that yesterday: sure they were talking about the latest planning permission in June or July, so surely they should have a decision soon?

I think if Ovenden had been there with the Clio it would have been a different story - Ling was certainly quick but the Fiesta is still some way off the pace of the Clio. It'd be good to see Ling doing some of the British championship rounds next season to see where he sits in terms of pace compared with the other regulars.

Lydden has definitely improved - the converted shipping containers work well as food outlets and look much better than the tatty trailers they replaced (also the pigs in blankets hotdog was nice ). The toilets in the paddock are better than they used to be and were clean all day (helped but the low number of people there I suppose), the toilets on the hill are still an abomination though

I thought on the whole it was a good meeting - could do with more entries but it had a generally relaxed vibe to it and was a proper 'clubman' meeting. If the winter series can become established it offers a relatively cheap way into the sport.

I think Lydden have the right idea here and also, potentially a way to perhaps start to repair damage that has been done for decades now.

Simon Arran's right up for motorsport magazine echoes the sentiment regarding lack of spectators:
https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/o...tH2fpB81rvj_Io
I wonder how many local people were aware of the event let alone those more geographically removed, it seems that only a few hardy(and possibly slightly mad) people attend such obscure "clubbie" meetings.
