See Rallycross and a Top Gear USA presenter this weekend

If you caught Rallycross fever when the boys gave it a go last series, why not see the pros at the European Rally Cross this weekend at Lydden Hill in Kent – the same track where Jeremy and Richard went head to head?

After you’ve finished your Easter egg hunt, head to The Garden of England and watch some of the closest and most exciting motorsport this side of Group B.

Top Gear USA’s very own Tanner Foust will be going up against British X-Games winner Liam Doran – in his mental 600hp DS3 – and double World Rally Champion, Marcus Grönholm.

Racing starts on Sunday and rolls over into Easter Monday. It’ll cost you 15 English pounds to watch on Sunday and £20 on the Monday. That’s just for adults, as kids under 12 go free.

If you don’t know who’s in which car, just cheer for Gary. As Jeremy found out, everyone in Rallycross is called Gary.

Would be cool if the Top Gear UK boys did a rally car challenge on the way to the event for their next season and the winner would get to ride shotgun in some of Tanner’s practice laps.

Want to see TG UK to compete in a series of competition with TG US…..
That would be a great episode, coz the US guys wouldn’t allow the UK guys to cheat, like in every competition they did so….

Tanner might have competed at LLyden hill, but the local guys
should know the best racing line and the shortest route.
that should give them, an advantage over an excellent tame
racing driver. as in any form of motorsport, it pays to cheat and
bent the rules.

Look at Vettel moan, against the HRT driver wanting him
to go onto a damp part of the track. so he could use the
shortest route, not caring about the poor hrt driver.
did some damaged to seb reputation, that complained.

I would like to see Tanner Foust, have a go in an F1 car
to see how fast he can go.
Alonso is Faster than Vettel, seb does not like that at all.

@steve12, You are odd. Every time I go onto a Top Gear USA post, you have 100’s of comments that don’t make any sense at all. And they’re really long.

like you said feeling odd.

@steve Tanner can do just fine in an F1 car. I guess you may not know that he’s won the F1 Drifting World Champpionship, not once, but twice!

Report this comment

yes i did, but he no Fernado Alonso the highest paid
racing driver in the world.
including sponorship Alonso, is getting over 200 million
for the next five years.

Worth every penny, the current Ferrari F1 car is a dog
but Fernado has won a race in it.
lead the driver championship, that why Ferrari pay
him so much.
the current car, is useless fernado is brillant.

@ USA gal, Tanner can do just fine in an F1 car, because he is a racing driver, but he wont be able to overtake even hrt`s in an maclaren, neither will he be able to last a full race because he is not used to it, thats all. By F1 Drifting World Champpionship you probably meant the D1 Drifting World Champpionship. Whats the difference? Its impossible to powersteer an F1 car because they usually got about 55% of their weight on the rear axle in addition to 600kg weight and 800hp plus lots of downforce meaning that as soon as the F1 cars go sideways, they ultimately loose all the downforce. You rarely see any F1 drifts, and if you do they are at low speed corners. To watch the best best and probably only way to drift an F1 car, go youtube and look for schuey’s monaco qualy lap in his old ferrari with fronttyres loosing their grip.

It took a few months, but I finally figured it out. steve12 is actually Yoda from Star Wars.

What would you guys do if you found yourselves in court one day only to spot steve12 on the jury?

Report this comment

you find yourself, going to jail for life.
just putting the point, that the favourite for the
race is the local guy.
if the race, was at Laguna Seca Tanner would be
favourite to win.

Tanner Foust is a good driver, but he not good enough
to race either Indycar or F1.
he is too much, off a showoff to be taken seriously.

the new Dodge Viper looks means, and cool to drive fast.
can not wait, to see how it go around the Top Gear test track
in the hands of the stig.
look a real blast to drive, and cover the miles quickly.

would be good, to see it in a drag race against the Noble
m600, or the Mcclaren mp4-12c.
both cars, could give the dodge a run for it money.

Congrats to Tanner Foust. He won the event for his class.

well done to Tanner, but it hard that a Yank won
at LLydenn Hill.
disappointed with the local drivers, should have
won with local knowledge.

Good luck to Tanner in the future.
