Heathcote: I’m still learning
Nathan Heathcote will start thinking about winning the British Rallycross Championship title if he can score a podium finish at Lydden Hill on Easter Monday.
The Pluckley racer, 20, secured a sensational debut victory at the opening round in the toplevel Supercar class at Croft last month.
He now enters the second meeting at Lydden with the championship lead after beating European event winner Kevin Procter and Irishman Ollie O’Donovan to the flag at round one.
Heathcote, a Citroen C4 driver, said: “I am going to keep my head down and I have still got a lot to learn – if I get a podium at Lydden, I will start looking at winning the championship.
“There will be more pressure on me now than there was in the first race but I will approach the event in the same way as I did at Croft.”
Biddenden’s Lee Keeler, 37, will also compete at Lydden, driving Ashford racer Fred Ling’s former Citroen Saxo in the Hot Hatch class.
Action starts at 9am. Tickets cost £15 in advance with children under 12 going free.
