I’m still confused as to why a rally team operate a rallycross programme under rally branding. It’s all the confuzzlement.

Day one is the 12th of November. Schedules have been released on ifmarbrazil.com, and LiveRC have retained their deal as official media partner, so keep an eye on their YouTube channel and live.liverc.com.

The dirt track was replaced with a permanent astro track, because it was too hard to upkeep properly. Users of the track have multiplied since they made the switch. There had to come a point where an EFRA or IFMAR event moved with the times and ran an artificial track. Read more

I do 1/10 off road myself, I’m a driver for Serpent UK.

It does indeed. I’ll start posting my own racing updates at some point.

2WD has escaped that period of manufacturer dominance, thankfully. It’s a tough fight in both categories. Cars are becoming stronger, more adjustable and more innovative with each passing year. It really is a booming class.

I’ll cover some of the stuff Associated brought with them tomorrow. Tebo was in a class of his own in terms of raw pace, but Spencer just looked dialed from the very first practice session onwards.

The bottom sirloin leading into the flank is of particular interest. It looks to be a nice curve on this particular cattle, offering the possibility of vortex lift.

There’s middling to low pressure across the whole back end, but there are some signs of higher pressure at the top of the rear legs. Some kind of thigh winglets may suffice.

Supertourers had a mixed grid next year, and it was slightly one-sided, but it was a good addition. This year they slimmed the championship right down which seems to be the opposite of what they should be doing to grow it. They had the odd little wheel scare earlier this year, that mightn’t have done them any favours Read more

I really am hoping that it was just bad timing for all, and next year we’ll be back to normal. It just didn’t have any class or excitement; I’d have a hard time identifying it as the Gold Cup if I was shown some trackside pictures. The Sunday was actually the day I was planning to go, but the timetable sort of set Read more

Imps love it. A lot run a ton of front camber to try and keep the car rotating once the back end gets slightly loose.

Crossovers are a marketing ploy. Top Gear (on this very rare occasion) nailed it - they sell you a lifestyle, not a car. Renault would love you to think that the Captur is an all-fun, active lifestyle car, but it’s a jacked up Clio with barely anymore room and a few interesting compartment spaces inside. Are they a Read more

It was definitely overcast at times, with a very chilling wind to boot too. Certainly not the most unpleasant race meeting I’ve been to, but not exactly the warmest!

The MSA (Motorsport Association of Great Britain) stipulate that you need to run a Novice sticker for your first 6 races.

Thank you for the kind words! Still not impressed by some of them myself, I yearn for a quiet day with a DSLR... but pre-war racing cars are pre-war racing cars, so I can’t really complain.
