MSA British Rally Championship

Korhonen & Salminen were amongst those who took a prize entry on Wales Rally GB 2013

Seven of the MSA British Rally Championship’s 2014 winners will receive free entries on the UK’s round of the World Rally Championship, Wales Rally GB, the event continuing its successful Road to Wales campaign.

Introduced 12 months ago, the innovative and far-reaching Road to Wales scheme included a number of different programmes all of which combined to revitalise Britain’s concluding round of the FIA World Rally Championship in 2013.

Building on that success, which resulted in crowds returning to the legendary Welsh forest stages in record numbers, the top three finishers in the country’s premier rally championship will be rewarded again with invitation entries on Wales Rally GB, alongside the British Junior and BRC RallyTwo champions.

Adding to the incentive, both the NGK Spark Plugs BRC Challenge Trophy champion and winner of the BRC ‘Stars of the Future’ will also be offered free entries in the three-day National Rally that runs alongside the international event.

Free entries into the National event will also be provided to the winner of each of the MSA English Rally Championship, the MSA Welsh Forest Rally Championship and MSA Northern Ireland Rally Championship. This swells the number of prize entries to an impressive ten.

Andrew Coe, Chief Executive of WRGB organiser International Motor Sports: “Wales Rally GB is the pinnacle of rallying in the UK and we are determined to maximise its pre-eminence to the full benefit of all those involved in the sport.

Whether it’s encouraging and rewarding those competing in our top national championships or providing those aspiring to be future world champions with vital WRC experience, the provision of these prize entries was extremely well received last year. That’s why we are delighted to be expanding the scheme to ten and including Northern Ireland for the first time in 2014.”

World Rally passes are available HERE for Wales Rally GB (13-16th November). Spectators can whet their appetites for the classic WRC stages on the opening round of the BRC, Rally North Wales starting on Friday 4th April with action throughout Saturday 5th April.
