20160526 - The Jump

146 / 365

Today was qualifying day at the British round of the World RX at Silverstone. It's the first year they've held it - having beaten the traditional home of RX, Lydden Hill, to the contract (booo, hiss etc).
We had grandstand tickets, but as we'll probably spend all day there tomorrow, we went for a bimble around the new rally cross track and ended up spending the afternoon on the far side, which has a better view of the jump. And it really is a jump - a car-breaking jump at that. Several cars didn't recover from their landings.
This is actually a car from the ARX series (American Rally Cross). Not entirely sure why they were here, but it was nice to see some different cars and drivers.
