Rallycross at Lydden Hill

Swift Sport Rallycross at Lydden Hill 2016

This was my first visit to watch Rallycross at Lydden Hill… in fact it was my first time to watch Rallycross live at all! There were 42 races of various car classes from single make championships for the Suzuki Swifts & Minis to Retro Rallycross cars, RX150 Buggies & the awesome fire spitting Super cars.

I was there primarily to shoot photos for the Swift Sport Rallycross Championship, for them to use in the marketing & social media. To try to capture some of the atmosphere around the paddock & some of the on-track action.

Once the meeting gets underway it is non stop. Practice/Qualifying are help over 4 laps. With a lap taking not much over a minute for some of the cars, the action came thick & fast. You really didn’t have time to do anything from the end of one race to the next one starting. For spectators it is great concept of continuos action going on in front of you. The classes of cars changing by every race makes it varied & exciting to watch. I will definitely be going again even if it’s just to sit & enjoy the racing

I hope you enjoy looking through this collection of photos from the meeting.
