NOTICE OF CANCELLATION : SIDEWAYS SKILLS AT LYDDEN HILL, SATURDAY 30th MARCH 2019


It is with deep regret that we are forced to announce the cancellation of our Sideways Skills event on Saturday 30th March.

All the team here at Lydden Hill were really looking forward to hosting the event. We’re big supporters of the full-circuit Sideways Sessions we run here. After consultation with experienced drivers and championship organisers, we attempted to create something new; a full day of sideways-driving games, with trophies and prizes on offer.

We needed a minimum of 40 cars to make this financially viable for the circuit. Unfortunately, we had nowhere near that number of entries, and a series of drop-outs overnight have forced us to take this difficult decision.

We will obviously look after anyone with a booking. Please expect a phone call from us shortly to discuss what we can do to put things right. Ultimately, we take cancelling any event extremely seriously. Every effort has been made to avoid this regrettable course of action.

In light of this, we are also sadly cancelling our Sideways Saturday on the 13th of April. This will now become a motorcycle trackday. The next sideways event at Lydden Hill will be the three-hour Sideways Sessions on the afternoon of Saturday 29th June. It’s our regular format and we’ve always had overwhelmingly positive feedback from both drivers and spectators.

We hoped that by offering something new, we could maintain the sideways driving events here at Lydden Hill. We’re desperate for them to work. However, with our other events regularly full-booked, we can only continue to offer Sideways events with your support.

We would like to apologise to anyone who booked in good faith. Thank you to everyone who helped us develop the idea and push it forward. We did our best.


Best Regards,

The Lydden Hill Team
