Here's my large album of less good pictures from Lydden Hill ! https://bit.ly/38POQes

These are all of the Supercars. I'll add a few of the Retros soon. I left after the Semis so there's 4 sets here: Practice from the hairpin at the top then the two Q races and the Semis from three vantage points around the dirt end of the track, which is by far the most photographically interesting .

Enjoy!

Entry list for Pembrey up:



Looks like some of the breakages from Lydden haven't been fixed as some classes seem to have low numbers?

Shame most classes are much smaller than Lydden. Supercars still has the quickest guys fortunately so should be a good fight. In fact pretty much ever class still has the people who can fight for wins, except Super Retro. What happened there? Only 4 (well 5 because McBain should be in S.Retro) is a big drop from the past few years.

The rate of attrition in that class at Lydden was very high. They started round one with enough cars for semi-finals and were down to single figures before the end of qualifying.

Would like to see Boak, Anson and Sellar out in Supercar but, in the least disrespectful way to those guys, the likely title challengers are all there.

Good to see Vince Bristow and Ray Morgan have both got their cars fixed. Shame no Sterkens, was hoping to see Dan Swayland entered as well as his Mk.1 Escort looked good on the test day.

Yeah, of the 10 starters on Saturday only 4 saw the flag on Monday. It must be hard running those cars so I shouldn't be too surprised at the reliability.

Boak could enter a round once he get's new suspension. Go watch the BTRDA Pembrey coverage. I thought (and so did Boak) that the car would roll because of how soft the suspension was

The Supercar class has those sitting 2nd-8th in points so the quick guys are running.

Did anybody catch any coverage from Pembrey? I saw a few snippets online over the weekend but not enough to get a real picture of what was going on.

I was in the paddock so saw a fair amount of it

The coverage has been patchy this weekend... it should be better for the rest of the year.

Ignoring the disappointing number of cars the racing was alright and the championship is wide open now. Tohill had a pretty miserable weekend, somewhat his fault, somewhat bad luck but now Patrick leads the series after winning every session. Ollie was involved in a few incidents, only 1 penalty which is probably the right call. Ollie was using the Focus on Sunday as the Proton had electrical issues... when turning left . He's in Hungary this weekend so hopefully that can be fixed for EuroRX.

Tohill caused more stuff but it seemed to only affect himself apart from the round 4 final. What a final that was. Everyone was hitting everyone. The start was insane as tyres got hit and stuck under 2 cars. Then even more chaos the rest of the race so definitely worth watching till the end.


Super Retro had 3 new cars including a TR7 V8 which wanted to go anywhere but the track. All the other classes were pretty standard fights. New winners in Mini both days, Junior, RX150 & Supercar. Swift title is a 3 way fight, Junior 4 way and Mini 9 way!

No red flags either across both days, though the round 3 final should have been when Hill got out of his car while dust prevented the drivers seeing him or his parked car. Track maintenance was non-existent which didn't help.
