Round five of the FIA World Rallycross Championship at Lydden Hill will also be a farewell. On the weekend of May 27 and 28, the field will be competing for the last time on the circuit in the southeast of England until further notice. Lydden Hill is regarded as the cradle of rallycross, the first races of this motorsport series having been held there in 1967. The circuit suits the Audi S1 EKS RX quattro really well and Mattias Ekstrm with his team, EKS, is aiming to clinch a victory there.
