The Supercar and Junior categories from the Motorsport UK British Rallycross Championship 5 Nations Trophy will join the roster at the brand-new Lydden Legend Festival next July (20-21).
The recently-announced Lydden Legend Festival will focus on celebrating the glory of period rallycross and rally machinery, following in the footsteps of the hugely-successful Loheac Legend Festival held earlier this year in France. Period car and driver announcements are set to begin in the coming days.
Joining the diverse range of period classes in action at the world’s oldest rallycross circuit next summer, the Supercar and Junior divisions will provide a competitive points-scoring element to the Festival – the contemporary Supercars competing in a double-header weekend, while the new showcase event for rallycross and Lydden Hill will be utilised to give the stars of the future in the Motorsport UK Junior Rallycross Championship – racing single-specification Suzuki Swifts – another exciting new platform on which to compete, in a single-header round.
The Lydden Legend Festival will begin on Friday July 19 with a Welcome Gala, following media activities, before the celebrations of this amazing discipline continue throughout the weekend.
