Couple of comments on Facebook are suggesting that Albatec will appear in the GRC this year.

Just seen that Oliver Bennett is a late entry for the first round at Silverstone.

So who won today, suspect it would have been Julian Godfrey, no results on TSL only live timing which I missed. Did Oliver Bennett turn up?

Yep Julian won the Supercars from Derek Tohill with Pat Doran third. Oliver was there but they found a few problems in warm up so pulled out from the event to get the car sorted ready for trip to Abu Dhabi for World RX

Bennet did the odd lap in praccy but that was it.

Ollie O popped a motor, it was even out before meeting end, no doubt for JG to take home, rough week as the motor he built for Ken Block's new car blew too. Say no more about that!

Lovely weather, some good drives. Harris RS200 failed noise test (FFS its the middle of nowhere) then had an electrical fire, ran fine after that, Bowes Mini the steering wheel came off over the jump! The Golf kept popping driveshafts. The MR2 went better than it ever has, until the stupid jump took a corner off.

Every driver I talked to at a club level had NO idea why they ran BTRDA same day, and every single one of them also has no idea why they don't run together.

Interesting that.

Thank you for confirming the results. Sounds like some things won't change. I wonder how other domestic series are doing.

It's stupid, even for club level hillclimbs we try to make sure that we're not clashing with other events in the region, it's ridiculous for a national championship to have this problem. It's in the interests of both championships to make sure they don't have events on the same day, so you'd thought they'd pick up the phone or drop an email when planning the calendar.

People know my opinion about this.

There is no need for two series at all, the numbers are not there in either to warrant it, if you had one single British series it would be overflowing with entries. I am sure it could be done, the drivers I talked to want it, as do most fans.

the only people you would have disagreeing here, are people with a foot in one of the camps.

But yes, clashing dates is just bonkers, but this is what you get with egos and the like.

I do wonder how much difference it would have made (perhaps a few more Super Nationals) but, even so, it did seem pretty daft to have both Championships starting on the same date.

Great driving from Godfrey. Shame that Ollie was out so early as I was hoping to see him and Julian fighting for first. Good showing from Tohill as well, pity he was just off the pace of Godfrey.

Disappointed not to see Bennett in action. After his performance at the final round at Silverstone last year I thought there was a real chance of him challenging the regulars again, but the car did three practise laps and that was it.

Close racing in the Swift Junior and BMW MINI classes again. A couple of years ago I thought they were the least interesting thing in the Championship, but both had some excellent scraps yesterday.

Retros were a bit hit-and-miss in the morning, but everyone looked like they were trying in the afternoon. Was disappointed to see two RS200's reduced to zero by the end of heat 1, but pleased when Harris reappeared again in the afternoon.

Full results here -

Gallery will be available on Flickr shortly.

My first time at Rallycross (apart from Lydden a few years back) although watched it as a lad on Grandstand (DAFs, 4WD Capris etc).

Bit of a curate's egg. Dust a huge problem on the jump side until damped down. Felt like we were a few cars short of a really good event especially in the quicker classes. Feels as if the track is too short and nadgery. If the jump side was extended further south with a bit more tarmac, might be better ?

Glad I went, especially as it is just up the road. Not sure it will become a fixture in my diary.

I'd agree with both of your points there; if O'Donovan and Bennett had both run the full day I think the Supercars would have been a lot closer. Shame that Thomas didn't have his Fiesta ready in time either.

There isn't much room for expansion at the top end of the circuit but, as you say, the circuit could be extended at the bottom which could add more speed and fluidity to the lap. The time to do that would have been the Winter though, so I don't think we'll see any changes this year.

Should be a bigger entry for Lydden, so the next round might be worth a look if you can make it.


PS: I imagine Kevin Feeney is sore today, his landings from the jump were painful to watch!

the watering was odd.

They left it two or three rcaes too long to water it initially, a few guys spun and had incidents as they couldn't see.

Then they watered everywhere apart from the joker area, so that the leader laid a dust trail and the drivers leaving the joke, at the merge, were blinded, they were very very lucky.

I sometimes wonder if people running these events have really any idea!! not helped by the sort of dirt they use, like a fine sandy top coat that really is not suited to this.

Overall interested to see what happens to the venue, it surely can't be supported by two meetings a year, and I doubt the Speedmachine thing will get as big a crowd this year, unless they really pull out the stops and get interesting stuff. But looking at the amount of building going on around the whole circuit, they don't seem short of money.

Be interesting to see how Speedmachine fares this year: with reduced ticket prices and, in theory at least, more racing to see (with the European Championship there) I wonder how numbers will compare to last year.

I would hope they have learned their lesson with regard to pricing, they seem to have, they have been pushing it endlessly on social media and even had people putting bloody leaflets under wipers in the car park!!
