British Rallycross Championship 2018

I don't think we have a standalone thread for the 2018 British Championship yet and I have just seen the first bit of news relating to it: Mark Higgins will drive the Albatec 208 for at least the first two rounds of the British Championship.

Posted this in the World Championship thread, but it seems relevant so I will post it here as well: Loeb, Timmy Hansen and Guerlain Chicherit have all entered the opening round of the British Championship at Silverstone.

Full entry list can be seen here:

No Doran's or Citroens then. Down to the Lydden, Silverstone situation ?

This is unprecedentedly early for them to get an entry list out. And it's a good list too!

2 more potential supercars. Would be good to have some more WRX guys.

Heathcote is doing the RX2 this year. Pat too old but not sure about Harris. No Warren Scott either or did I miss that? Maybe some will be late entries

I hadn't thought of that, but I guess it could be. My first thought was that the Mini(s) weren't ready yet?

Room for two more Supercar entries though, so there is still room for a Doran! (or two)

EDIT: Anyone know what cars Roger Thomas and Mike Manning are using? New builds or purchased off other drivers?

Cheers! According to several posts on Facbook the Mike Manning Impreza is a new build for the BTRDA, but it will be getting tested at Silverstone.

Ollie O'Donovan has said he will only be doing select European rounds this year in order to concentrate on winning the British title.

I thought Ollie was doing select WRX rounds? Silverstone, Loheac and South Africa.

Well South Africa is basically in Europe isn't it? Give or take 4000 miles...

100% correct! Checked this with Roger himself at the final BTRDA round at Croft in November. Still had the Dom Buckley Motorsport decals on the underside of the bonnet!!

Roger had a busy autumn in 2017 and also bought Mark Flaherty's MG Metro 6R4, which of course had been previously campaigned very successfully by Lawrence Gibson, including winning the 2008 British Rallycross Championship.

Roger also owns the ex-Schanche, ex Christopher Evans Astra supercar and a rally-spec 6R4 too. Lucky chap!

Cheers, Steve

Damn, not a bad garage to have!

Another World driver confirmed to run at the opening British round at Silverstone: Bakkerud will drive an EKS S1.

Jake Harris has posted on Instagram/Facebook that he will be out in the DS3 for Lydden and round 2
