BACK TO THE ORIGINS OF RALLYCROSS

Robert Reed organized in 1967 which was the first rallycross race in history. It was at Lydden Hill in Britain. 48 years later, the FIA World Rallycross Championship returns once more to its origins to celebrate the 4th round of the 2015 season at the Lydden Hill Circuit. Between 23 and 24 May a total of 59 cars of the Supercars category (29), TouringCars (18) and RX Lites (12) will participate in the race.

There, Andreas Bakkerund, who took victory in the first edition of the British event last season, will try again to reach the top of the podium for the first win of the year for Ford Olsbergs MSE team. “I grew up watching my idols competing in this circuit” so that the Norwegian driver is highly motivated and eager to win.

But Bakkerund will encounter some tough opponents. One, Petter Solberg, currently leading the standings of the World Rallycross or Tanner Foust, who will complete the second of the four rounds of the World Rallycross Championship this 2015 and has already won twice at this track.
