Two-time British Rally champion Guy Wilks is set to enter the British round of the FIA World Rallycross championship at Lydden Hill and says the event will be 'an exciting opportunity' for a potential career move.

Wilks will race in a JRM Racing Mini RX Supercar for his debut in World Rallycross and the 34-year-old sees it as a series which could host the future of his racing career.

"Rallycross is a sport that's really going places and I see it as the next chapter in my career," Wilks said. "As a driver that's had a successful career rallying, I know I have the skills and experience to make an impression in rallycross.

"Joining the JRM Racing team at Lydden Hill is an exciting opportunity for me to take my first steps in rallycross and being part of an all-British line-up at Britain's only round of the World RX series will be a proud moment."

The British driver made the trip to Hockenheim to watch the JRM Racing team make its championship debut in the second round of the 2015 championship. American duo Dave Mirra and Danny Way drove for the British squad in Germany and Wilks is set to join up with the team for a one-off event at Lydden Hill on the 22-24 May.

"Guy's motorsport pedigree is undisputed and we won the British Rally Championship together in 2008," James Rumsey, the JRM Racing team principal, said. ?I have no doubt he'll adapt to the requirements of rallycross quickly and successfully."
