Motorsport News backs Lydden World Rallycross Championship round

The fourth round of the World RX season takes place on May 23-24 and MN has put its name to the event as part of the publication's 60th anniversary celebrations. It will be known as FIA Motorsport News World RX of Great Britain.

The event will also receive additional promotion via other publications within the Haymarket Consumer Media group, including AUTOSPORT, Autocar and Pistonheads.com.

Lydden Hill owner Pat Doran said: "The support we enjoyed from these titles last year were significant in us attracting a record crowd, so we are delighted to be extending the partnership.

"We are absolutely delighted to be teaming with a title of Motorsport News' renowned reputation and long-running popularity in what's such a very special milestone year for the magazine.

"Ever since Vic Elford won the very first rallycross race at Lydden Hill back the late 1960s, the sport has always enjoyed great exposure in the pages of Motorsport News and that's why we are so delighted to be part of its 60th birthday celebrations."

Early Bird tickets for the meeting are available until the end of March. These are priced at £20 for Saturday and £25 for Sunday, but will rise to £25 and £30 from the beginning of April, with any remaining general admission tickets to be sold on the gate for £30 and £35 respectively.

Accompanied children aged 12 and under will be admitted free of charge, while VIP Hospitality and a limited number of grandstand tickets are also available in advance.
