Lydden seems to have dropped off many championships for 2014. Is there some reason behind it?

because of this: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=6803

It was a circuit share agreement, sprint in the morning and race in the afternoon. Without one the other could not happen, The one Lydden sprint this year is bizzarely going to be part of a VW festival held at the circuit that weekend.

We ( I mean Ricky) will be out at Rockingham next Sunday, 16th March in the Clio, Pete Ellens also entered in the same class with his A110.

Mark, I think there must be more to it. It would appear that Lydden has much fewer events on this year. The BTRDA aren't using it for rallycross (and circuit owner Pat Doran is a rx competitor) although the BRC has the usual 2 events there. The Classic Bike racers (CRMC) appear to only have 1 event there this year (IIRC they had 3 a few years back). It looks like it's missed off a few other championships as well..

Thought you were asking about lack of sprints, and that is totally due to no SEMSEC races, full stop.

BARC are running 2 meetings instead of their usual 1 and of course you forgot to mention they are hosting the world rally cross event in May which is now going to be a huge event, although Jaques Villenueve has now pulled out (but was testing there the other Saturday), there are some top names turning up for that one. There is also the APex festival which was pretty big last year. All in all I think they have filled all there allowed event dates despite not having SEMSEC races.

I think though there may be more to the SEMSEC thing than the blamed lack of entries as they pulled down the control tower/timekeepers place by the start finish line late last year and as of yet have not built a new one which would make racing there impossible, and I am sure they must have informed race organisers that no racing could go ahead before the new one is built- that would have curtailed both SEMSECs first 2 races of the season. Should be in place for the WRX although as of last Saturday they had not even started on it.

I expect the 'World' rallycross is just the 'European' rallycross with a different name, despite the razzmatazz (but I will be there at the end of may to see it again!).
It looks to me like they've replaced the missing events with the 'drift' championship, which really doesn't float my boat to watch (although I'd love to give it a go).
I'm not sure what you mean by the BARC, but if that's the full name of the british rallycross championship, it usually has 2 events at Lydden.

A great shame you won't be sprinting there as it is a great little circuit.

BARC= British Automobile Race Club. http://www.barcsoutheast.co.uk/index.html its racing they do, hence the name.
Drifting, it would seem is what pulls the punters in, for some reason. recent drift track days there have been sold out while normal car trackdays have been arrive and drive.

the European rally cross championship is still in existence, the Lydden round being in both world and European. Despite RX being big in the USA, there are no rounds there surprisingly. Argentina is tenativly on the calender though as is a Canadian round.

Riku should be out in the May sprint, keep an eye on the forum for pass details if you want to come along. Looks like we might get a race there as well.

full results are ar TSL timing: http://www.tsl-timing.com/sprint/2014/141181.pdf

Interesting 64ft times where he is quite slow compared to others, FWD v RWD I suppose.
the "f" speed is the speed across the sprint finish line, shame no speed trap on turn 1 as we reckon he was pulling around 110mph there.

there was also a Alfa in class which failed to set any times and brought out a red flag on every run.

Yes, the classes "up north" are slightly different then we are used to. I entered in the wrong class and got a telling off for not reading the regs properly! My usual class 10 was class 9 there. There was a clash of sprints with North Weald on the day so the usual GT3's were there I Guess.
Its a great sprint to do next year Simon, would suit a GTA I feel and for once a great sprint to go a watch.
Pete had brake and tyre issues IIRC.
Good result for us as aside from one Suburu and a heavily modded Nissan Fairlady Z, we were the first of what you would call a normal tin top car with road going roots... The Mini was a mid engined monster and the Ka seemed a whole heap wider than the real thing.

The one and only Lydden sprint this year is on May 10th and the regs are avaialble here: http://twmc.org.uk/allcircuit/index.html

Its part of the VW Apex festival so a lot else going on at the circuit following the morning sprint so is a good one to go to. Also a national round (I think) so expect some big single seaters as well.
