    Megane looks good, sounds like they're aiming for a first event at Loheac with a full season next year. Be interesting to see if they bring in another driver to have a two man team, can't see Chicherit making too many waves on his own.
    I thought the same. Either someone big fell through or they think that's a good SoMe strategy. Silly either way.

    That Megane looks good, let's hope they get a fast guy for the second seat.

    Very good for the sport to have this project waiting in the wings. Interested to see how much works Renault involvement we can expect. Or really whether this is just completely Prodrive with no manufacturer cooperation. Let's see.

    Smells like they have been given the rights to use the I.P. and not much else at this point and have everything crossed that a good performance will see further $$$ from Renault.

    Few bits of news over the last few days. Chicherit running a Clio Supercar in a number of events this year in lead up to the Megane.
    Timo Scheider announced pretty much full time with Max Pucher's team, with the exception of Lydden when Andrew Jordan will fill in for him.

    Will be interesting to see how Jordan gets on, last time he was in a Fiesta at Lydden he finished on the podium, although things have moved on quite a bit since then and I think the competition is stronger.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    Hi guys

    Question for anybody whose been to Lydden Hill before.

    Going this year for first time, bought weekend tickets, what does that allow us to do/go i.e are you able to see the cars in paddock or what?

    Also where the best place to stand/sit?

    Thanks

    Yes, the Fiesta of MJP Racing should be faster. So is Andrew even able to fight for the win ?

    In previous years you can get anywhere, but it seems to get busier and tighter every season so this year might be restricted. I took this shot at about 11pm on the Friday evening in 2014, Petter was still about talking to the mechanics too (sorry if the photo is giant, can't work out how to resize)


    During the lunch break 'drift show' I even managed to wander onto the pre-grid in 2015 and took this shot

    For standing, you can basically choose anywhere and still see pretty much the whole track, so I wouldn't bother paying for seating. Personally I like to wander around the track during Saturday morning practice and watch from a few spots. Then when the racing starts we tend to set up on the last corner and watch there, it's not that close to the track but gives a good view and is close to the campsite....although that's if they don't change it. First two years you could roll up to the campsite on Friday night and set up, have a barbecue and generally relax. However last year they closed the campsite for Friday night so we had to stay in the car park and then move in the morning. Also they stopped fires because apparently the bit that they call the campsite is actually a car park for the purposes of insurance :S So security were walking around on Saturday night telling people to put out fires...in fact iirc one group even had their fire put out by the track's fire crew!

    Yep, and back then it was an okay car, but I'm not convinced at the minute. I know that Timur had some pretty storming races in the Austria car last year but I can't see it being on a par with the money that EKS, Hansen and VW have. But Jordan is a decent driver and home advantage can work wonders, remember that Wilks took a 1600 Mini to the final in 2015.
