So what have Croft done wrong? We have a British series with two 'sail away ' rounds , two rounds at Lydden but drop the venue that's held RX since I was still at school (1970 ) and which gets great local support .

I think it's Croft's decision to not have rallycross rather than the Championship's decision?

Great to go back to Ireland but seems Silverstone is thankfully dead, although for British events, for me annoying as it is down the bloody road, means i will unlikely do any British events next year as the entries do not really warrant the mileage.

If ever the two series needed combining, now is the time, as this is very, very poor in reality.

Cooper Tires, confirmed before Christmas. Plus they're sponsoring the championship.

Some news from the Autosport show:

https://twitter.com/BritishRallyx/st...03707137708033

Ovenden to Supercar in a DS3 - if the Clio stays idle then Supernational should be more competitive.

Yes that car needs to leave the class getting like Evans and Bellerby,, hardly encourages others to have a go.

In other news I see clubs wanting to use Blyton for rallies have been hit with a massive rental increase so no more rallies there, wonder if rallycross is the same, all to do with clear up costs it seems.

I don't believe that I believe Ginetta simply want there own thing there and sod everyone else, I fear for RX and autograss, both things that were there long before Tomlinson stuck his wedge in.

Valkenswaard is confirmed? Last season most of the events were cancelled because of legal issues due to noise.

Nice to see a good piece of news for BRX, Ovenden is a canny driver so be interesting to see how he gets on with the DS3, hopefully its a bit more reliable and not as fragile as it has been in past.

The third winter rx meeting at Lydden is on the 18th Jan, same day as the SVR at Brands Hatch! That is just poor planning, there sound be no excuses for clashes at this time of year.

It depends who know the dates first, this seems to happen in awful lot in motorsport.

My decision, sod the pair of them if they are going to play silly buggers like that.

Agreed - hopefully this works out well, another entry in the supercar class is always welcome and it'll be interesting to see how Tristan gets on against the regulars. Has anyone heard any news about other drivers for the supercars this year?

The Brands rally is part of the MSN championship (Brands is round 4) so that calendar has been out for a long time - certainly prior to any mention I've seen of the winter rallycross. Shame as having both on the same day dilutes both entries and spectators at a time of year when there's really no need for clashes.

Good question - I'm assuming Albatec still have them, I've not heard any plans from them for this season though. Do they also still have the 306?

The British championship twitter feed has mentioned Ollie O'Donovan and Steve Hill are both back in the Supercars and Tom Constantine (presumably in the Swifts as the post included a shot of his Swift). Any more news from anyone?
