Lydden Hill rallycross tickets released for action-packed Bank Holiday weekend
Lydden Hill has opened ticket sales for the opening round of the Motorsport UK British Rallycross Championship 5 Nations Trophy Presented by Cooper Tires on 30th and 31st August. Tickets will be limited and available in advance.
The August Bank Holiday weekend sees the start of the 2020 5 Nations BRX season, with drivers and teams eager to get back on track. Spectators have also been eagerly awaiting news that they will be able to attend in person to see the guaranteed track action that rallycross brings at this level. Dreams of the sights, sounds and smells of motorsport are now weeks from becoming reality and the organisers have been working with Motorsport UK and to government guidelines to ensure that fans can make the most of the open space and natural amphitheatre that Lydden Hill offers.
An impressive nine classes will be competing in the event including the headlining two litre 600 bhp 4-wheel drive turbocharged flame-spitting Supercars, iconic cars from the retro class such as Group B Ford RS200s and Audi Quattros, front-wheel drive 1600s, Supernationals, Minis, Swifts and the super-fast super-fun RX150 buggies.
Large screen TV will show key moments from rallycross around the world, merchandise will be available, ‘Joker’ the 5 Nations BRX mascot will be mingling with the fans and a wide variety of food will be available.
After racing finishes on the Sunday evening there’s plenty to keep spectators occupied. The soapbox race is open to officials, teams and spectators, with free entry provided to anyone purchasing an entry ticket. Entry forms are available from the secretary of the meeting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also taking place on Sunday evening, Lydden Hill will host the first ‘meet and greet’ of 2020. Drivers and invited VIP guests will be interviewed and chat with the audience. Overnight camping will be permitted, subject to the prevailing guidelines, so fans looking at attending both days are welcome to stay overnight on site.
Safety is the prime concern of Lydden Hill and 5 Nations BRX, so all government guidance is being monitored and there will be regular updates.
Hannah Rynston, Lydden Hill Circuit Manager:
“We can’t wait to finally get racing! We feel privileged to have a circuit that is so well suited to exciting racing and safe spectating and it’s going to be great to give so many families the fun weekend that they deserve after such strange times with the pandemic.
“The race action is going to be fantastic. We already have a huge entry list which is growing by the day. Watch out for more driver announcements!
“It’s also a first – fans can compete with the rallycross stars. Now is the time to get onto YouTube and start building a soapbox to beat the RX champion racers!”
