UK Rally Ltd, the company that promotes and runs the MSA British Rally Championship, has extended its contract option with the Motor Sports Association, it has been announced today.
The agreement means that UK Rally Ltd will continue running Britain's premier rally championship for the next five years, until 2014.
"Taking our option to extend our contract with the MSA means that we will have an unbroken nine years in charge of the championship and importantly it brings the BRC contract in line with the MSA Country Championships," said UK Rally managing director, Mark Taylor.
"I'm sure we can repay the confidence that the MSA has shown in us and the influx of talented youngsters in the last couple of years has shown that the Championship is providing the right sporting arena for aspiring UK and International competitors."
The 2010 MSA British Rally Championship calendar is already set, with the opening round, Bulldog International Rally North Wales on March 27 having just released its event overview, Rally Guide One.
