The fourth round of the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship took place at Silverstone on the challenging rallycross circuit, located on the infield of the world-famous Grand Prix circuit.

Swedish driver Timmy Hansen made an alternative joker lap strategy work brilliantly to come out ahead of his rival Andreas Bakkerud, taking victory and with it the lead of the championship. Hansen took his joker on the 3rd lap, giving him the free space to set faster lap times. When Bakkerud took his joker two laps later, Hansen had done enough to emerge ahead of the Norwegian driver.

Catch up on the action with highlights of the final:

Driven were appointed by Silverstone Circuit to design the new FIA world rallycross track. It was constructed in early 2017 and has now successfully hosted the British round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship twice, as well as rounds in the British and American Rallycross Championships. The track is a 972m mixed surface circuit, featuring the highest jump on the FIA World Rallycross Championship calendar.
