Richard Egger Insurance to back ARC and ARS again.

Richard Egger Insurance will remain as the headline sponsor for both the MSA Asphalt Rally Championship and the BTRDA Asphalt Rally Series in 2009, organisers have announced.

Speaking following the news, Richard Egger, himself a keen competitor, said he was looking forward to next season now.

"We at Richard Egger Insurance have enjoyed our involvement with the MSA and BTRDA Asphalt Rally Championships - great events, good competition and nice people. What more could we hope for? We look forward to 2009 now and to building on the success of this year," he confirmed.

The schedules for next year have also been published with each series set to be made up of seven events.
