The Motorsport UK British Rally Championship is delighted to announce a brand-new partnership with ferry operator DFDS as they sign a multi-year contract to become Official Travel Partner of the 2023 season and beyond.
DFDS has been voted the Worlds Leading Ferry Operator for the last 12 years and operates passenger and freight routes across Northern Europe and the Mediterranean. Joining the British Rally Championship for the remainder of the season and beyond will enable spectators and crews to benefit from attractive discounts on both North Sea and English Channel crossings .
The DFDS Dover – Dunkirk crossing offers the shortest route to the forthcoming Ardeca Ypres Rally in Belgium in June and the discounts include cars, motorhomes and vehicles with trailer. DFDS also operate the two port shops in Dunkirk and Calais for stocking up on tax free allowances on Spirits , wines , perfumes and Lego .
BRC Championship Manager Reece Tarren is excited to welcome DFDS to the series.
“It’s fantastic to have such an iconic brand in DFDS join the British Rally Championship as a partner this season, creating a superb offer for our competitors and fans in the process,” says Tarren.
“The BRC is very excited to be heading back to Belgium this season for the world-class Ypres Rally and hopefully this collaboration will go some way in assisting everyone with their travel costs. I`m looking forward to working with DFDS this season and I`ll probably catch up with some of our crews on the trip over the water!”
Christine Burke, DFDS UK Partnership Manager commented.
“DFDS are delighted to be partnering with the British Rally Championship for the next two years. Now in our 156th year as a travel company we appreciate the value of strong collaboration with great sporting events, contributing to our goals of inclusiveness and diversity for all. We look forward to meeting many crews and supporters in Ypres reminding everyone to make the most of their Duty Free allowance on the return to the UK.”
The offer is available for BRC registered crews, with Motorsport UK Members also eligible for a discounted rate, available through the Member Benefits portal here: https://www.motorsportuk.org/about-us/partners/member-benefits/
