For the first time in its 59-year history the Prestone MSA British Rally Championship is heading across the Channel for its first overseas round. Tony Pond, Jimmy McRae and Kris Meeke are the only British winners of the classic Ypres Rally. Meeke is the last British winner of the event in 2009 and that 8 year wait could come to an end after two demanding days on the Belgian Tarmac.
Here are the top British Rally Championship crews to look out for. The top BRC crew will lift the Tony Pond Trophy at the end of the event. Can someone take the fight to the Europeans and win the event outright this weekend?
