On the town

by Tim Whittington |

In mainland Britain, getting a road closed is not an easy thing, so when those working to promote next weekend’s MSA British Rallycross Grand Prix at Croft managed to get a section of Northallerton High Street closed, and permission to run some Rallycross cars on the closed roads as a demonstration, it was a quite a result. The event took place today between 1200 and 1600 and gave visitors to the popular North Yorkshire market town a chance to get up close to some of the front running cars and drivers from a variety of classes. Around a dozen Rallycross cars took part in the event which was supplemented by the display of some rally cars and the local branch of the Ford RS Owners Club.

The Grand Prix takes place at Croft on Sunday (October 28) as part of a weekend of Rallycross at the circuit that begins with the final round of the Monster Energy MSA British Rallycross Championship on Saturday. On track action is from 0900 each day. More details here
