BTRDA 75th Anniversary Rallycross Event - Croft

The DDMC (Darlington and District Motor Club) is bringing grass roots Rallycross back to Croft on Sunday 24th November with an event just for two wheel drive club competitors.

As part of the BTRDA 75th Anniversary celebrations, the event aims to give the competitor, and spectator, close racing, full grids and a quick turn round.

Every competitor will get a chance of a Final and all the races will be run without classes, ensuring that 90% of the races start with a full 8 car grid. This returns rallycross to a format last used for the GP events at Brands Hatch.

Who's going? Who's racing?
Should be a good event.

I don't like being a pedant but, DDMC used this format when they ran a winter series in the early 2000's



Anyway more importantly you guys out there with the 205's, your cars will be eligible for this one so dust them off and get entered

Surprised there hasn't been more comment on this thread as I know from posts on here that people were very unhappy about the lack of clubman rallycross this year. Surely this is great news for rallycross in the UK and Croft for that matter. Have the track management seen the light and realised that rallycross is one of their biggest draws after the BTCC and HSCC events or have they just found themselves with a spare noisy day?

Anyway entry already looks healthy and I for one shall try to make the effort to get there as I am 50/50 as to whether I can get to the GP for the second year on the trot!

It's actually a quiet day, under 100db IIRC.
Most of the two wheel drive cars have no problem with this. I asked what my car was last time out, and it came in at a very quiet 94db.

I could be wrong but I think the Saturday of the GP weekend used to be a quiet day, hence the minimal running of the buggys on the Saturday.

I certainly hope to be there, went to the GP last year and really enjoyed it. Going to be a full wet weather and thermals day I imagine!

Yeah, that's the only downside. The weather has turned by mid November in this part of the World. Having said that looking out the window I think it may have turned already!

Is there any more news on this at the moment - or on whether there will be a clubmen's championship in 2014? Thanks.

Lots of news including an entry list so far can be found on;

http://clubmansrallycross.weebly.com...-nov-24th.html

Entry list already on 35 cars which is great 5 months before the event, expected to be around 50-60 cars by November.

Keep an eye on www.clubmansrallycross.weebly.com for more information and also www.BTRDA.com on this event and the planned 2014 season.

I love Croft. Don't get to visit as often as I should even though it's only about 30 miles from me.

November's usually a busy month for me but I'm going to try to get there for this!

The latest entry list for this event can be found here:

http://clubmansrallycross.weebly.com...ntry-list.html

Currently 49 cars.
Maximum entry is 64
Only 15 spaces remaining, any drivers looking to do the event should enter asap

Great to see Clubman Rallycross so strong, and a great entry with 3 months still to go.

All the signs are great for a good event and 2014.

Yes, entry looks very promising for a November meeting!

I'm guessing the autocrossers will run on the rallycross track?

Looks like a really good entry list.
Good to see a lot of the 'old' regulars who for one reason or another are missing from current RX are entered.
Am tempted to make the long haul north (so long as there is no drifting or mayhem!!!)

There are NO classes within this event, all cars including Autocross cars will race together with grids formed from times set.

Finals will all be mixed A final right through to a H Final.

First 2 in each final go through to the next one.

The definately will be NO Mayhem, drifting or stunt shows.

Just full grids 8 cars per race, every race, non stop rallycross action from around 9am until it gets dark....

Should be a great event, with a maximum entry of 64 top 2wd cars.

Entry now full

BTRDA 75th Anniversary Rallycross Croft Circuit November 24th

Having received a full 64 car entry two months before the event, Darlington & DMC have decided to take a further 8 reserves which, if necessary, would equate to a further grid.

Club Chairman and event Secretary, Terry Wright, commented I always felt that there was a demand for a true clubmens event aimed specifically at the two wheel drive competitor. The entry filling up so quickly has proved this. All we have to do now is provide a slick event to compliment the competitors faith.

The event is designed to reflect the early days of Rallycross, something the DDMC is familiar with, with races run classless, a quick turn round and everyone in with a chance of an award. Every competitor will have the opportunity of a Final, something started by the late Bill Chesson, and the class awards will be extracted from the overall results.
