BRC Opener Rally North Wales Postponed

1 Mins read

Rally North Wales, the opening round of the MSA British Rally Championship, has been postponed for the second year running.

Wolverhampton & South Staffordshire Car Club has had to cancel the rally due to insufficient entries and a consequential potential loss of more than £10,000 for the organisers.

The Welshpool-based event couldn’t run last year due to adverse weather conditions.

“We needed 106 entries just to break-even this year. With less than 80 entries the Club was facing a potential loss of in excess of £10k, which we simply cannot afford. Cancelling last year’s rally cost the Club a similar amount and wiped out any contingency funding for this year.” explained Guy Weaver, Chairman of W&SSC.

The news means that the 2014 British Rally Championship will now take place over seven rounds on six qualifying events (the Manx Rally is a double-header), with competitors discounting their two single worst scores.

The season will now start with the Pirelli Carlisle RB Foundation Rally on May 3rd/4th.

“I feel for the organising team who have done all they can under the circumstances, committing many months of tireless work to run what was shaping up to be a first class rally,” added BRC Manager Mark Taylor.
