How to make an F1 venue fit for World RX

World Rallycross makes its first appearance at Silverstone this year as part of the 'Speedmachine' festival in May. We take a look at how the new rallycross track fared in its debut event

Silverstone entered a brave new era last weekend when it hosted its first rallycross event on the new purpose-built track on the Stowe circuit area, a precursor to the Speedmachine-branded World Rallycross Championship event at the end of May.

The inaugural meeting was the opening round of the British Rallycross Championship, which was the perfect curtain-raiser. It was a high-profile meeting to allow organisers to have a run-through of the systems that will be used on May 26-27.
