rallycrossnl should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The first link returned by google is an advert, indicated by [Adv.] So it's a paid number 1. That's a clever move by IMG/Silverstone. You won't win that game to get Lydden back on top.

The picture looked like a game render of a fiesta to me. That's why I asked for a real link. Pix dumped by someone with 6 posts since 2013 are not real info.

It's a sponsored ad right? If I understand the Google search engine correctly you can sponsor adverts to crop up at the top of the page for certain, specified search terms. I can't be bothered to check others, but it might be that Silverstone or WRx returns the same result. Certainly nothing to do with lydden.

The important thing it to be outraged about it, not to wonder why it is there.

Oh it's nothing to do with Lydden, that was not my point.

The IMG machine clearly using Lydden as a search tool, fairly ruthless stuff sadly.

The fact that Speedmachine comes top of the list when you type in Lydden Hill is irrelevant.
It comes top of the list when you type in anything rallycross related.
Try typing BTRDA rallycross or ten tenths rallycross and it is also top of the list.
They are obviously targeting Google ads very hard.

Lol

Shows that their PR campaign is struggling to sell tickets to me and they have budget to throw at this event.

Rather sad to be honest to think that the majority of people that go to this event will hardly even notice the racing.

I'm yet to see a positive comment on Facebook aimed at Sppedmachine. All the comments I've seen are just pointing out that it is overpriced.
I'm sure they'll still sell the majority of tickets, but it's good to see fans giving them what for.

Yeah, the handful of positive comments I have seen seem to be vastly outnumbered by the negative comments.

I see they are now running a promotion where you can get freebies if you help to sell tickets? Not sure quite how to interpret that.

Ha, if they gave me a free ticket if I managed to sell a ticket, then I might go for that (i.e. would be half price). Even then it would be pretty steep!

Isn't that called a Pyramid Scam? (Ponzi)

And they have the dirt4 world championship grand final! (some computer game) Winner wins a drive in a RX2.

Confirmation that the Supercars will be replaced by the "Gold Class" here:

So, let's just go in 2019 after they introduce the Platinum Class (depending on what that ends up being)!

There is always some sort of elevation in articles from GRC where they write how special, revolutionizing, incredible, good, evolving etc. GRC is. GRC seems to be over the top if one is to believe their articles.

Will be interesting though to see this car.

I think the cars sound decent but would prefer to see on addition to supercars, not instead of.

Platinum has surely got to be electric? The GRC were talking about electric before the World Championship, so this must be what they are aiming for?

Given that I (rather foolishly) booked a non-refundable hotel room near Lydden when the first announcement was made I am committed to October. My hope is that, with decent numbers, the "Gold" Lites could be entertaining. Of course the question is, can they get the numbers?...
