The MSA British Rally Championship and the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship are pleased to announce a partnership with one of the world’s leading ferry companies, providing discounted rates for competitors to cross the Irish Sea.
The offer from Stena Line will enable UK crews to travel to Ireland to tackle the Circuit of Ireland in April and the Ulster in August. Similarly UK or Irish competitors can dovetail an Irish Tarmac Championship assault with the BRC. Both British and Irish competitors can now plan a full-on year of rallying on the legendary Tarmac of Ireland and classic stages in the British Isles.
The discounted rates will enable cars, vans, motorhomes, rigid and artic vehicles to travel between the two rallying havens.
BRC Championship Manager Iain Campbell and Irish Tarmac Championship Manager Paddy Flanaghan are both delighted with the deal as they hope it will see a rise in levels of competition both sides of the water.
“It is great to have Stena Line onboard for the 2016 season,” enthused Campbell
“The fantastic deal will enable competitors who may have dismissed the Irish events due to cost actually reevaluate their plans and try and put together a full campaign by making their budget go further.
“Simultaneously we hope to see Irish Tarmac Championship competitors take advantage of this offer to travel to the UK and compete in the BRC as well as their home championship.”
The Stena Line discounted rates are only available for registered BRC or Irish Tarmac Championship competitors. How to claim these once you have registered for the championship is available through each championship manager.
