BHRC: Television boost for 09

At least five rounds of the Dunlop/Gambia MSA British Historic Rally Championship will be covered on TV this year thanks to Dunlop's increased backing for the championship.

After two successful pilot programmes in 2008, covering the Mid Wales Stages and the Trackrod Historic Cup, the BHRC's arrangement with Pit Lane Productions has been extended to cover at least five rallies.

This major development for the BHRC comes at a time when historic rallying is booming and becoming ever more popular among rally fans, both out on the stages and at home in front of TV screens.

It underlines the BHRC's place at the pinnacle of UK historic rallying and the scene is already set for a tremendous season in 2009.

The initial plan is to cover all five gravel events, while at the same time efforts will continue to add coverage of some of the asphalt events. However, either due to filming rights issues or event locations, the three asphalt events are significantly more expensive to film.

"This is one of the first enhancements made possible by Dunlop's increased support for the BHRC and is excellent news for all the competitors," said championship co-ordinator Simon Marks. "We would like to add to the five events agreed so far."
