Sports car ace Oliver Webb added to TitansRX field for Lydden Hill

Oliver Webb will make his rallycross debut as a wildcard entry in the third and fourth rounds of the 2019 TitansRX season at Lydden Hill.

The Brit joins fellow circuit racers Perry McCarthy and Abbie Eaton in a star-studded wildcard bill for the series’ first visit to Britain.

“I’m delighted to be joining TitansRX with what is a completely new skill set for me,” said Webb. “Rallycross is something I’ve never done!”

“Spending my whole life on tarmac with zero experience on anything else, and being a single seater and prototype driver, this will be a huge learning weekend and just a chance to gain some experience.”

Webb is perhaps best known as a sports car racer, having spent much of his career in the top LMP1 tier of the FIA World Endurance Championship. He also won the European Le Mans series with Signatech Alpine in 2014 – in the same year he also claimed a class podium at Le Mans – and took an overall victory in the 24 Hours of Dubai in 2015.

Prior to his sports car career Webb found success on the single seater ladder, racing in both Europe and the United States. He finished third in the 2009 British Formula Renault and 2010 British Formula 3 seasons; was a pole position starter and podium finisher in Indy Lights; and a regular points scorer in Formula Renault 3.5

„Lydden Hill hosts the second event of the TitansRX 2019 series and it will trump the success of Essay-Ducs,“ said TitansRX founder and CEO Max Pucher. „As promised, we bring the very best of racing stars together in this series and British racing star Oliver Webb has wiped his calendar to participate in TitansRX Europe rounds three and four at the home of Rallycross, Lydden Hill.“

„I am very happy to have five British drivers testing their offroad skill against the RX stars. I expect a bigger spectacle than Lydden Hill has seen in a long time. Don‘t miss it!“
