Brendan to test drive Supercar Lite Rallycross car

PDFPrintE-mail

Brendan Reeves will return to flat-out action this Friday when he and a select few drivers take part in a test drive day for the newly-launched SIDCHROME EXTREME Rallycross Championship.

As Rallycross explodes in popularity worldwide, the new Australian championship is set to follow suit with the likes of Chris Atkinson, Alister McRae and Jack Monkhouse lining up to join Brendan at Friday’s test at the Sydney Motorsport Park.


The seven round championship is set to kick off in August and whilst his commitment to the series will be based on sufficient sponsorship, Brendan is keen to put the Supercar Lite (purpose-built for rallycross events) to the test. Drivers will each have 15 to 20 laps to put the car through its paces whilst also learning more about the championship rules and regulations on the day.


Rallycross has proved hugely popular with fans in Europe and the United States as spectators can watch all the action live from the one spot without having to move locations as they would have to at a regular rally. It’s for this reason, and the fact that rallycross is highly entertaining, that Brendan believes the sport will take off in Australia.


“I've driven most things in my career but never rallycross but it's at the top of the list,” Brendan said.


“I went to several rounds in Europe as a spectator in 2011/12 while rallying over there and I also went to the XGames in LA in 2013. It's a crazy, fun sport with all the characteristics of rally but other cars are at your doors.


 “The test on Friday will give me a true indication of the car and the championship,” he added.
