Welcome message from Shirley Gibson

It is a pleasure to welcome you to our website and to introduce you to the 2021 Retro Rallycross Championship.

I am sure you share the relief we feel having left 2020 behind and the hope that, as the year unfolds for 2021, we can get back to business as usual.

As the Covid-19 situated took hold during the year it became obvious quite quickly there would be a serious impact within the world of sport. Motorsport was no exception and, whilst keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe and well was on the top of our agenda we wanted, if possible, to try and steer a safe path to keep some of our championship rounds on track.

For Rob and I 2020 and was to be a year of celebration, with various plans put in place to be able to do so; It was in the early spring of 1970 that we made our first visit to Lydden Hill, having been attracted by what we had seen on national TV. Later that same year we were married so, our Golden wedding anniversary had originally also formed part of our cancelled agenda.

We were eventually able to have two outings held at Lydden Hill, the pinnacle ‘Home of Rallycross’ each following the Governments guidelines offering a safe and secure environment, all thanks to the efforts of Motorsport UK, LHMC and Lydden Hill staff.

Despite the restrictions we were able to welcome even more wonderful cars into our championship. The events at Lydden gave us a depleted but exciting season consisting of 4 rounds that saw Citroen AX driver Steve Cozens become the 2020 Retro Rallycross Champion adding his name to the list of previous victors and hold, for a period of one year, our prestigious award, the John Button Memorial trophy.

The over 1600cc ‘Super Retro’ category was won overall by Vince Bristow in his iconic BMW with Ian Flitney taking the honours driving his magnificent Subaru in our newly formed Group B/4wd class. As the highest placed 4wd car, Ian was presented with our first prize of £1,000.

In 2021 we will continue with our two main categories; Retro Rallycross and Super Retro, as well as expanding our Group B/4WD Championship with a cut off date of 1999. The Group B era is widely recognised as ‘the greatest years’ of rallycross and Retro Rallycross is the only place in the UK where you can once again see the flame spitting rallycross monsters back out on track. No excuse any more for redundant Supercars to be parked up in sheds and garages, Retro Rallycross provide the perfect platform for those who find the British Supercar class out of reach.

Retro Rallycross are recognised as one of the forefront organisers in British Rallycross and as such we will have another new venture ready to introduce for the 2021 season as we bring the first EV series into the UK; the ‘Electro Rallycross Championship’.

Working alongside my friend John Taylor, joined the EV manufacturing specialists Elimen Racing in Poland and, by the end of 2019 we had two models specifically built for rallycross. We will have cars for rent and sale as well as entries being open to allow other competitors/manufacturers with compliant cars to join us.

I am really looking forward to welcoming you all back to Retro Rallycross during the year and, on behalf of us all, wish you a Happy and Healthy new year.

Very best wishes!

Shirley
