GRC extends free tyres initiative

Following the recent announcement that every competitor registering for the 2009 Pirelli MSA Gravel Rally Championship, and contesting at least half the rounds, will be eligible for a free set of Pirelli tyres, has come the news that more free rubber will be up for grabs courtesy of the series sponsors.

“After the restructuring of the classes for 2009 by the Association of National Championship Rally Organisers (ANCRO), it has been agreed that the leading registered driver in each class after round four of the eight round series, the RBS International Manx Rally on May 8-9, will be awarded a further six tyres each, entirely free of charge, which can be claimed at the start of round five, the Severn Valley Stages Rally on May 30,” confirmed a statement to the media.

“What it potentially means is that any driver can obtain tyres to the value of £1,400, plus any end of season awards, and in the event of a successful driver in a two-wheel drive car, in addition, they can get free entries in the Mintex Two-Wheel Drive Championship to the value of around £4,000 as well as an end of season cash prize of £1,000.”

"We are listening to the comments of our customers and we are working with our sponsors Pirelli to achieve our aims of getting as many people as possible to contest this fantastic championship,” explained championship manager, Lyn Jenkins.

“Both ANCRO and Pirelli are determined to make this a success and the fact that these incentives are now possible demonstrates our combined commitment to this series.

“No other rally championships in the UK offer such benefits whereby a driver can win what is effectively a £6,000 plus prize for a minimal investment."

Meanwhile, despite a slow uptake initially, entries for the opening round, Rallye Sunseeker, have now reached over sixty with three weeks still to go before the Bournemouth-based event.
