Will Gollop and Pat Doran lead the British contingent in this weekend's Autoglass British Rallycross Grand Prix, though both drivers from Kent have suffered this season. Gollop, last year's European Champion, has had teething troubles with his new Peugeot 309, but he knows the Kent circuit well, having won the Grand Prix three times. Doran, winner in 1991, was dogged by bad luck in the European Championship and could manage only eighth place after finishing second last year. The Scandinavians mount a strong challenge, led by the Swede, Per Eklund, who makes his first appearance at Brands Hatch in a Subaru Legacy. Fourth in the Europeans, he is likely to be among the leading finishers.
