No idea how this championship is still around as they keep limping through each season with the only usable Belgian Rx track subject to closure

Said article: https://www.autosport.be/news/duivelsberg-ontwaakt-en-opent-rallycrossseizoen-2020.html

Given that the BTCC has knocked the first 3 events on the head it's only a matter of time before rallycross does the same surely? Push things back until later in the year and hopefully things will be returning to some form of normality by then (although who'll have budgets for racing by then is open to question).

And there we go

Interesting to see that currently they seem to be working on the theory that they'll have spectators at the events.

Yeah. Hopefully the events can take place either way.

Also with Pembrey staying the same date it means they keep the clash with BTRDA so expect an even more reduced support field there.

A fairly large entry could be at all the rounds this year. So far I've counted 40 cars with nearly 2 months until Lydden. Plus not many mentions of returning Swifts, rx150, or retros so a fair few could be on the horizon.

10 supercars at the moment is okay, certainly better than the last few years. Of those 40 many were confirmed pre-lockdown so I wouldn't be surprised if some don't make it to the grid. But if the other classes grow by a similar amount as Supercar and Mini have, then it should be a big entry.

I think at this stage it's anyone's guess as to how many entries there will be! Lots of people will have changed plans since the original announcements - it's not until we see an entry list that we'll get a decent picture of the state of things (for both the British and BTRDA championships).

Although given how poor the RX150 grid has been over the last couple of years that could well be dead.

Can't agree more. BTRDA up to 42 entries for Rd1/2 though so it is promising.

Yeah. Plus Chrissy Palmer is out this year and he's been the only one to make every round in each of the last 2 seasons.

Anyone in the know about Lydden? I can't see how they are going to be allowed to permit spectators

I'd have thought they'd be allowed spectators - it's not "an elite sport" so should be ok (British GT can have spectators, BTCC can't). Not sure if they'd have to limit numbers (presumably advance ticket sales only).

I'm not sure whether to go or not - on the one hand: rallycross, on the other - it's usually the busiest Lydden meeting of the year and let's face it cleaning is not Lydden's strongpoint and social distancing may be tricky in places (although you could always spend the day sat in your car - assuming it's not 30C!). Other circuits are also restricting paddock access - and that's not so easy at Lydden. I guess we'll have to wait for a definitive answer from the circuit themselves (again - not always their strongpoint).
