1 Mins read

Abarth UK, Citroen UK, M-Sport and Renault Sport Technologies have been announced as the first four members of the new MSA British Rally Championship Constructors’ Commission.

The commission was established at the end of 2013, with the aim to broaden the appeal of the BRC, increase multi-manufacturer participation and provide performance parity to allow any manufacturers the opportunity to compete to win.

The commission recently had its first meeting ahead of the 2014 season, with it decided that M-Sport’s Fiesta R200 and Abarth UK’s 500 R3T would be accepted in the top BRC1 category, and that the Citroen DS3 R3T would be restricted to “non-max” specification to help keep costs down.

“The role of the Constructors’ Commission to help deliver technical parity and cost effectiveness for all involved which will always be underpinned with the good of the sport in mind,” said commission chairman Mark Deans.

“The manufacturer partners have been fully supportive of initiatives to help limit costs and they have made constructive proposals for improving both the social and engagement aspects of the Championship.

“Our first priority however is to evaluate the proposed modifications to vehicles ahead of this season and ensure that all parties are happy and we are jointly able to deliver another exiting season’s rallying.”
