The addictive experience of racing a rallycross Supercar

By:

Racing a Supercar is what every budding rallycross driver aspires to do – and it’s exactly what our reporter had the opportunity to try out. As he found, it lived up to and exceeded expectations

On 3 July 2005, as an 18-year-old, I made my rallycross debut at Anglesey. With no prior mechanical knowledge and no family history of competing in motorsport, just getting to the event in a self-prepared car was, I felt, a huge achievement.

The main memory I have from that day is actually from the paddock. As I lined up for my first-ever practice session, Ford Escort rallycross Supercar driver Andy Grant pulled onto the pre-grid behind me. I was so excited to even just be lining up beside a four-wheel-drive, 600-horsepower rallycross Supercar. After all, Supercars are the creme de la creme of the discipline, the cars that all drivers aspire to sample.
