    Seems like we won't be seeing the Irish and European interest that we were hoping for due to travel restrictions, but talk of over ten Supercars is still enough to get me excited!

    Can't wait for next weekend, first live motorsport in almost six months.

    What was the weekend like? Did socially distanced rallycross work?!

    I was pleasantly surprised at how well behaved the crowd were being. I certainly didn't see everywhere, but from what I saw people seemed to be distancing themselves at the trackside, in queues and when moving around. Perhaps I got lucky with what I saw, but I was expecting to see all discipline go out the window once people got into the circuit.

    After six months without any motorsport to watch I'd have probably have enjoyed the weekend irrespective of the quality of the racing, but I thought it was a decent start to the Championship, especially given the circumstances.

    Mark Donnelly was great in the C4 at Titans and I was hoping he'd do well in the DS3: I wasn't disappointed. The fight for first in the Supercar final was superb. I actually thought Julian Godfrey had the legs on Mark, was very surprised when he took the joker behind him.

    Speaking of Julian, he really turned his fortunes around. Was odd to see him struggling in the opening qualification races, but he had everything sorted in time for the semis and final.

    I thought the situation with Oliver Bennett was a bit strange. I initially thought it was his/his teams fault for not reading the rules properly, but then I read comments suggesting that he had informed the organisers about his fuel before the weekend and it only became an issue later in the event. On the subject of his exclusion, I'd love to know the difference between fuel types. Yeah, I know his Mini runs a Pipo engine and Oliver has no doubt improved during his time in World RX, but his lap times were absolutely destroying those from the rest of the field...

    ...despite the absence of Bennett I still thought the grid for the Supercar final was the best quality it has been for some time. Eight well prepared cars, all capable of winning the final* (* in the right hands!). Unlucky end to the day for Thomas, but great to see Steve Hill having a trouble free day.

    Great images as usual and thanks for the report. Before Covid hit we knew that we wouldnt have a British round at Croft this year and until further notice anyway so had been resigned to missing the sport.

    I thought it was a real pity that the Championship lost Croft this year. I know it wasn't a brilliant track, but I think it is a shame that Silverstone is seemingly no longer an option for BRX either.

    Still, the number of circuits available now seems irrelevant this year. I have my doubts that they are going to be able to travel to the other three tracks on the calendar.

    No worries for the words. I actually wrote a short piece about the round!

    I watched the Lydden 'clubman' series on the FreeSports channel on Sky but there was no coverage of the Supercars. Any ideas where I can see this ?

    There are no Supercars at the BTRDA events, the only 4WD cars racing are in Production 4x4, rest of the classes are all 2WD.

    Few pictures from the clubman event at Lydden here:

    I see Knockhill and Pembrey look unlikely to happen and I can't see Mondello running either. Possibly another Lydden BRX round before the end of the year?
