Linnemann opts to use British championship for WRX warm-up
European championship Super1600 front-runner Ulrik Linnemann will race in the second round of the MSA British Rallycross Championship at Lydden Hill at the end of March.
The Dane will be driving his Peugeot 208 in preparation for Lydden’s World Rallycross Championship event in late May, where Super1600 will also compete.
Linnemann won three events in the Euro RX category in 2015, and is targeting the title this year. The Dane has used the British championship round in previous years to prepare for the European event held at the Kent circuit.
“The main plan is to have some testing in Denmark, then to go to Lydden Hill,” said Linnemann. “It will be good for me, and we are running a second driver this year too, so it will be good for him to learn the circuit. I think competing in races is much better than a test day. We will have our engine builders with us; we have some good developments with the engine, which is quite nice. Lydden is a good track and we will come to try out different lines and approaches, because there is not so much pressure at this event.”
