    Motorsport you say.........

    Never seen this before but the combination of speed and rough terrain would be very tempting. And the sound of thousands of angry bees helps as well! 16,000 rpm?

    Just........mental.....

    Looks fun but I don't think I'll be standing on the outside of a corner watching.

    Impressive.

    And slightly too edgy for a forest stage I would venture.

    Reminds me of Gruppe B.

    I just can't help thinking that all the drivers must be grinning insanely and screaming as they fly around that course.

    They look like rally stages but without the co-driver and pace notes...

    Bonkers. I'd love to have a crack!

    Reminds me of when dad used to take me to watch Lancia and Audi belting through Clumber park.

    We must be a similar age, same memory for me! Used to love those RAC rally Sunday stately home stages, a nice appetiser for the following week in the forest.

    They look like a cross between stock cars and remote control cars to me! Lots of fun though!

    These used to do the support races at the British Rallycross Championship. The main drivers used to double up in these. Crazy fast... they were called "RX" racers.

    Here's a pic I took at Nutts Corner, April 2009



    EDIT: Here they are in 2020
