Two-car Megane RS RX team heads to Lydden Hill for 5 Nations BRX finale
Hungarian squad Impossible RX Team will embark on a new challenge next week at Lydden Hill, racing a pair of ex-GCK Renault Megane RS RX Supercars in the final rounds of the Motorsport UK British Rallycross Championship 5 Nations Trophy (November 4-5).
Experienced father-son pairing Janos and Janko Wieszt will race the unique machines, originally developed by British firm Prodrive for the 2018 FIA World Rallycross Championship campaign.
Janos Wieszt 54, is a former Hungarian Rally Champion (1995) while his son Janko, 29, won Hungarian and Central European Zone titles in karting, then later claimed Hungarian Rallycross Championship in the Super1600 class, in 2017.
Having recently acquired the Megane RS RX machines and conducted a test session in their native country, the squad will now head to the home of rallycross, Lydden Hill, to make their maiden appearance with the cars – the first time such Supercars will have been raced in 5 Nations BRX.
“We have loved these cars from when they were built, and we discussed with GCK for a long time before coming to a deal to buy them. These cars are individual – no other Supercars have the technical solutions that these do,” said Janko Wieszt.
“For me, I have driven an old Supercar but never with a Euro RX or World RX level car, and my father has never driven a Supercar before. We have both had a long break since we last raced, but I like Lydden as a circuit and it will be great to run the cars for the first time there with our team. We don’t have any expectations, just to do our best and look to next season when we plan to make some appearances in the European Championship.”
The full entry list for the final round of the 5 Nations BRX season will be published on Wednesday, November 1.
