The 2010 BTRDA Rallycross Championship is supporting THE QUAIFE MSA Championship again in 2010. TV COVERAGE TOO
Officially speaking, Rallycross is a speed event taking place on a permanent track consisting of both sealed and unsealed surfaces.
Unofficially, Rallycross is wildchild of motor sport.
The offspring of a liaison between circuit racing and rallying. A place where it's kosher to use the kerbs and grass. Where sideways is good. And where fun is top of the agenda.
Providing both newcomers and 'budget' racers with a strong series events at the best UK venues. For the last few years the BTRDA Clubmans Championship has enjoyed a place on the support programme for the MSA British championship.
The championship caters for all classes of car. The strongest class in the championship is Stock Hatch, lightly modified 'GTi-type' cars of up to 1600cc engine capacity. Above this the SuperModified category is open to two-wheel drive cars that are permitted wide ranging modifications. The class contains sub-categories based on engine size. There is also a class for Junior Rallycross. Open to drive of 14 to 16-years-old, the class currently uses only a control-spec 1000cc Mini. And rejoining for 2010 are the ever popular Minicross cars.
