The international short circuit and rallycross show at the Brentwood Exhibition Centre this weekend promises to be a colourful affair. Seventy cars and 50 trade stands will represent every aspect of circuit racing from autograss to long track oval racing. Modified road cars such as Ford Escorts and Mondeos to single-seat racing cars will be on show. Designs from the new Euro 2000 rallycross formula, which comes into force next year, will be exhibited and there will be plenty of opportunities to get close to the cars and talk to the world and European champion drivers. Ian McKellar, the world hot rod champion from Essex, will be on hand and he will be joined by Rob Speak, the world Formula Two champion from Manchester, and Steve Sworder, the world "super stox" champion based in the Midlands. Demonstrations will include racing with scaled-down models of the cars on show.
