The 1998 and 1999 British Rally Champions Renault UK has become the first manufacturer to sign up for the 2012 MSA British Rally Championship.

The British Manufacturer's Rally Championship has been reinstated for the new two wheel drive era, allowing registered manufacturers and UK importers to vie for the title of British Champion. Renault UK is signing up to a promotional partnership and in 2012, the two highest placed privateer Renault rally cars will score points for the Manufacturer's Championship.

BRC Manager Mark Taylor commented: “It's brilliant news that Renault UK are the first to sign up to the Championship. We recognised the commercial realities currently faced by car manufacturers and their dealerships and specifically created a British Championship to attract UK Importers by reducing the usually barriers and high cost of entry.

“We are providing them with a platform to promote products that relate to what is being sold in the showroom. We are also offering them high quality media products and a chance to engage in rally themed dealer events.  Importantly, they will have a stakeholder ship in the future of this world renowned motorsport series.”

Jeremy Townsend, Communications Director for Renault UK, added: “Renault has a long and very successful motor sport heritage and the announcement today adds to the commitment we have in the UK to our national championships.”
