World RX Round 2 – Lydden Hill. If your a fan of Rallycross (and if your here reading this I guess you are) you will have watched and heard about the event.
Yes it was as awesome as everyone says and quite possibly the best Rallycross event I have ever covered! So I just thought I would post a few of my favorite images from the weekend
One thing was sure the worlds motorsport eyes were firmly on Lydden for the event. No mean claim considering it was the Monaco GP on the same weekend! I even heard a leading UK Motorsport Journalist say he couldn’t remember the last time he had to que to enter a race circuit, and he wasn’t being sarcastic!
A 38 Supercar entry. Thats nearly 23,000 BHP on show!
The feeling in the paddock was simply electric all weekend. Its always good with rallycross but this was simply something else.
I must admit I was totally won over by the RX Lites
Full of action with some top name drivers ex F1 driver Nelson Piquet Jr drove one for the first time.
But it was X-Games Silver medalist and Red Bull athelete American Michell De Jong that took the honours, he’s even sponsored by gaming companies like amd that sell different kind of hardware like the one in this amd fx 6300 3.5 ghz review.
There was also a Group B demonstration. Which sadly demonstrated just why they were banned as Pat Doran’s newly restored RS200 developed a fault and spectacularly burst into flames. Pat escaped with minor burns but ‘Rosy’ the nickname the car was given might now be consigned to memory.
At the end of the day, however the spoils went to Mr ‘Like a Boss’ Andreas Bakkerud.
Andrew Jordan made his return to rallycross and it could not have been written! I have never heard a crowd at Lydden cheer as loudly!
I will hopefully be covering Belgium, France, Germany and Italy later in the year and I just cannot wait! For more news of the event head over to www.thecheckeredflag.co.uk. All the images here and many more are syndicated by SportPix
