The BRC Challenge, the support event to the British Rally Championship, has been attracting entrants from all over the UK and will go ahead as planned this year, and will support the 6 BRC Rounds.

The deadline for the cheaper registrations coincided with the decision whether to can the Championship. However, with 13 confirmed entries and another 12 entries possible, the series is looking up and could end up more successful than it was in 2009.

Of the entries, M-Sport expect 8 of them to be Fiesta Sport Challenge competitors, and registrations are being accepted and processed by the new FSC co-ordinator Callum Craw.

Out of the 13 current registrations, 8 of them are new to the BRCC, and they have come from as far as Kent, Fife and County Tyrone in Northern Ireland. These drivers are:

Callum Black – Northamptonshire

Andrew Chalmers – North Yorkshire

Louise Cook – Kent

Mark Donnelly – County Tyrone

Conor Flynn – Derbyshire

Andy Gwynne – Gloucestershire

Julian Wilkes – Somerset

Simon Moore – Tyne & Wear

George Morrison – Fife

Chris Peart – East Yorkshire

Gavin Spencer – Tyne & Wear

Russ Thompson – Lancashire

James Watts – Hertfordshire

The Championship starts with the Bulldog Rally on the 27th March, and it will be based at the new Livestock market in Welshpool.
