The achievements of young drivers will be marked in the 2010 Dunlop/Wonago.com MSA British Historic Rally Championship following the announcement of a series of awards for the best driver and co-driver under the age of 25.
The HRCR Under 25 Award will be supported by Dunlop, West Wales Rally Spares and XS Racing and will reward the best class points' score by a driver and co-driver. The awards are open to registered BHRC contenders provided that they are also members of the Historic Rally Car Register.
The leading young driver and co-driver will each receive an award and a £100 voucher to be exchanged at West Wales Rally Spares. The leading driver will also receive four Dunlop competition tyres supplied by Mr Tyre (Motorsport) Ltd.
The driver and co-driver with the second best class total points' score will win an award and a £50 voucher to be exchanged at West Wales Rally Spares. The second placed driver will also receive two Dunlop competition tyres supplied by Mr Tyre (Motorsport) Ltd
In addition, the winning crew will be offered the opportunity to take its car along to a pre-2011 season test day with XS Racing, one of the leading preparation teams in the BHRC.
"We are delighted to announce these awards to recognise the younger crews," said BHRC co-ordinator Simon Marks.
"Inevitably, the average age of our competitors is a little more than 25, but the recent rise to prominence of Martin McCormack shows that rising young stars can make their mark in the BHRC before progressing into more modern machinery."
