British Rallycross Championship returns to Croft for latest adrenaline-filled event

26 Jul 18

The Toyo Tires MSA British Rallycross Championship returns to Croft Circuit this Sunday (July 29) for round six of what is proving to an exciting and unpredictable 2018 season.

Following a short summer break, the series resumes in North Yorkshire with sideways, high-octane thrills firmly high on the agenda in the forecasted searing sun.

It was in May that the British Rallycross contingent last visited Croft and fans were treated to a flat-out day of track action as the leading lights went wheel-to-wheel, and some even into the air – Julian Godfrey walking away unscathed from a scary roll and subsequent fire in his Mitsubishi Mirage.

Ollie O’Donovan walked away as the victor in the end and the Irishman arrives at Croft in control of the point’s standings. Three wins on the bounce has propelled the Ford driver to the summit, six points ahead of his nearest challenger Mark Higgins, who has been a revelation in his maiden season in the series.

A further four points back in the championship is multiple title winner Godfrey, who is keen to add another crown to his ever-growing list of accomplishments. These three will likely be the ones to watch in the Supercar category however there are a host of others that are all also sighting glory around the challenging Croft layout.

Local drivers Mad Mark and Kevin Proctor will be keen to put on a show in front of their home crowd whilst Steve Hill, Roger Thomas, Steve Mundy and Liam Manning make up the entry list in the flagship championship.

Aside from the Supercar action this weekend, fans will also have plenty of other categories to watch, undoubtedly keeping them on the edge-of-their seats.

Races from the MSA Supernational Championship (incl. Super 1600), MSA Junior Rallycross Championship, Swift Sport Championship, BMW Mini Championship, Retro Rallycross and Super Retro Rallycross will all be on the billing too.

Tickets will be available to purchase on the day, priced at £18 per person whilst children 15 and under go free when accompanied by a paying adult. Gates will open at 08:30 and track action will kick off at 09:30.
