After getting to meet all the great people behind the scenes of eBay Motors in San Jose, I returned back to England last week. It was a hectic three days flying to California and back again but well worth it. I was made very welcome at eBay HQ and every one I met was fantastic. And I really enjoyed sharing my eBay Motors Ford Fiesta Global RallyCross Car with them. Explaining the race car to them was a great experience.
So back in England I was getting a bit restless knowing the last two upcoming Global RallyCross rounds up are a bit away. I knew I needed some adrenalin rush and the gym and training just don’t meet the grade of competition.
I contacted some old friends in the British Rallycross to see what was happening, Bank Holiday weekend in the UK is a special one it’s a public holiday and the Rallycross weekend at Lydden Hill Kent is huge! Big crowds and generally a sunny, hot weekend by UK standards.
In the UK there are lots of classes of cars from the Super Cars like my eBay motors Fiesta down to one make class which is a Suzuki Swift. So this weekend with my Fiesta stabled 5,000 miles away in CA I am excited to be going up against some stiff clubman competition in the Suzuki Swift Championship. Its closely fought with all the cars identical and I can’t wait to get out there and have some fun.
So over this weekend I will be posting on Twitter how its going and should get some snaps of the car online tomorrow!!
Here goes and I will let you know the results next week.
Keep them spinning till then!
