Details emerged ahead of the festive break outlining next year's Citroën Racing Trophy UK, with official agent Charles Hurst pre-empting an official announcement by publishing outline details of the level of prize funding that will be available.
Citroën Racing in France is finalising details with the organisers of the MSA British Rally Championship surrounding a detailed support package for 2010, but it is confirmed that the UK series will be solely for the Citroen C2R2 Max and based wholly on the 2010 British Rally Championship regulations, featuring the six rounds with the best five scores to count for the overall title.
Incentivising performance within the Rally 2 Class, Citroën Racing is pledging €5,000 for first place in class, reducing down to €600 for eighth position, making almost €20,000 available to be won on each rally. This is in addition to a Citroën Racing Trophy UK end of season prize fund and awards.
Interest in the 2010 Citroën Racing Trophy UK series is particularly high and, coupled with an increased interest from Citroën UK, makes it one series that seems set to grow next season.
Belfast-based Charles Hurst will continue to provide on-event technical and parts support for each round of the championship, while an official announcement detailing the prize fund package and the opening of registrations are both expected in January.
