World Rally Championship tyre supplier Michelin will offer drivers the opportunity to win tyres in the MSA British Rally Championship this year.
The French outfit will offer eight tyres on the next round to the highest placed non-contracted Michelin crew to finish. Second will earn six tyres; third, four tyres and fourth will receive two tyres.
Michelin Motorsport Manager for UK and Ireland Tim Hoare believes that the open tyre formula is a key draw for the marque.
“We are excited to be back involved with the British Rally Championship and are looking for our product to produce strong results across the season.
“Our tyres are proven at the highest level but we haven’t competed on the BRC for many years. The series looks to have attracted a lot of strong competition and having an open tyre formula means there can be a battle on many levels.”
BRC championship manager Iain Campbell added: “To get such support from Michelin is strong motivation for BRC competitors. This is a high value prize and on a product that has such proven results on the WRC.”
