BHRC: New award to support the clubmen

New BHRC award to aid clubmans crews in 2010.
A new series of discretionary awards in the Dunlop/WONAGO.com MSA British Historic Rally Championship will support three clubmans crews with paid entry fees on one of the closing rounds of the 2010 season.

With the support of Holton Homes, the company of BHRC contender Peter Egerton, the BHRC 'Spirit of Clubmen' award will present three fully paid entry fees to either the Tour of Flanders or the Trackrod Historic Cup. One entry fee will be awarded to the category 1 cars, one to the category 2 cars and one to the category 3 cars.

By offering an entry to either the Tour of Flanders (10/11 September) or the Trackrod Historic Cup (25 September), the selected crews will have the choice of taking their award on an asphalt or a gravel event.

The three winners of the BHRC 'Spirit of Clubmen' awards will be selected by an expert panel and will be chosen at the end of July. The judging panel will be looking for crews that typify the ethos of clubmen, competing in a self-prepared car and running on limited funds. Notably, such crews that have suffered a catalogue of problems over the opening half of the season can still be considered.

"This is a great way to recognise and reward the effort of the lower-budget clubmen competing in the BHRC," said series co-ordinator Simon Marks. "We are very grateful to Holton Homes for supporting the awards and we really hope this will make a significant difference to the season of three crews."
