The organisers of the MSA British Rally Championship have confirmed that the Swift Sport Cup will again run in 2010, 'offering great on-event prize money, an end-of season prize and of course a place in the Pirelli Star Driver final at the end of the season'.

The full statement to the media read:

"The on-event prize money continues, with the top placed driver taking ?500, ?300 for second, ?200 for third and ?100 for the remainder of finishers down to fifth place.

"The one-make Championship package will include on-event support from Monster Sport Europe (MSE), which will attend each of the events with a parts truck and technical assistance for Swift Sport competitors.

"The series will also continue to enjoy TV coverage on Sky Sports' BRC Rallyzone programme and have its own dedicated website. The highest placed Junior driver will receive an automatic nomination to the Pirelli Star Driver shootout, with all registered drivers eligible for nomination at any time during the six events.

"Ian Robinson, formerly of Suzuki GB, will continue to be involved and provide co-ordination between competitors and the Championship on each of the six events that make up the 2010 Series.

"Augmenting the presence of the Swift Sport Cup rally village, each registered competitor will be issued with a Swift Sport Cup awning and groundsheet for their use throughout the season.

"The competition has been fierce in the last two years, any one of three drivers in with a chance of taking the title on the final rally of 2009 in Yorkshire. This is an ideal way of taking the step up from national Championship and with reduced entry fees for R1 class cars, is the best value per mile rallying in the UK.
