Sum­mer fes­ti­val vibes

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Out & About -

Ly­d­den Hill Cir­cuit cel­e­brated 50 years of ral­ly­cross with two cars from its past, and one from its fu­ture.

Two fan­tas­tic RX (the cor­rect acro­nym for ral­ly­cross in 2017) cars adorned its dis­play area to help cel­e­brate the mile­stone. First up was Pat Do­ran’s (the cir­cuit’s owner) Ford RS2000. And what RX-themed se­lec­tion would be com­plete with­out an MG Metro 6R4? How­ever, the third car on the stand has never graced Ly­d­den Hill’s Kent-based RX cir­cuit. A Ford Capri pi­loted by Le Mans win­ner Jochen Mass was the fi­nal weapon on the stand.

Ly­d­den Hill’s Louise Price ex­plains: ‘We’re host­ing a new clas­sic fes­ti­val on 12 Au­gust. It’s our first go at a fes­ti­val type oc­ca­sion and we’re re­ally ex­cited for it.

‘We’re work­ing with the Clas­sic Tour­ing Car Rac­ing Club and they kindly lent us that lovely Capri. There will be loads go­ing on at the fes­ti­val of course!’
