Rallycross is on a roll, giving rallying a run for its money as the most exciting and popular loose-surface motorsport on the planet. Whether it's the World Rallycross Championship or the British Rallycross Championship, the racing is close, thrilling, and more accessible than any other rough-road racing.

To find out just how exciting the British Rallycross Championship is shaping up to be, we drive the Citroen C4, being driven by Nathan Heathcote in this year's Championship, in a team run by the legendary Liam and Pat Doran. The location is the fantastic Lydden Hill circuit in Kent, home to two rounds of the 2017 British Rallycross Championship, and the UK's only round of the World Rallycross Championship.
