Prestone MSA British Rally Championship front runner Matt Edwards says that winning both the BRC and the BTRDA series would be “amazing” in 2018.

Speaking at the Autosport International Show, Edwards who finished third in the BRC last year, was quoted of saying: “With the link that Swift has with M-Sport anyway, there was an opportunity to get more resources behind the team. Put them together and we will have a very strong package.

“The original plan was to continue with the same setup and programme that we had last year, but with the potential that we’d shown, the move has come fairly naturally.

Asked whether the aim for 2018 was to win the titles in both series’, Edwards added: “That would be amazing. I’ve especially got great sentiment with the BTRDA because I’ve done most of my rallying there, it would be lovely to win that.”

Welshman Edwards will drive Ford Fiesta R5’s in full season campaigns in both championships in 2018. He will pilot an M-Sport prepared car in the BRC, while he will drive his Swift Group privately owned car in the BTRDA series.

Round one of the 2018 Prestone MSA British Rally Championship will take place on the Border Counties Rally on March 10/11.

I'm 23 and studying a Masters in Public Relations at the University of Sunderland after graduating with a Sports Journalism degree last year. I'm one of the co-editors here at TCF and mainly look after the off-road section of the site which covers championships such as the FIA World Rally and World Rallycross series'. Away from writing and studying I have a deep interest in of a lot of different sports as well as trying to be an amateur motorsport photographer and I'm also a big music fan too!
