BHRC / RD2 / RALLY NORTH WALES 2024

By Andrew Scott

The third Saturday of March saw crews descend on the market town of Welshpool for the second round of the MotorsportUK Fuchs Lubricants British Historic Rally Championship, Get Jerky Rally North Wales.

Mid-February had seen a very wet and soggy round 1 in Yorkshire, The Riponian, an event that left as many questions as it answered. George Lepley and Dale Bowen took the overall BHRC win in their Mitsubishi Galant VR-4 but were unable to score towards the overall championship in their recently homologated 4WD Grp A machine. Therefore, this left Yorkshire man Matthew Robinson and Northern Irishman Adrian Hetherington heading the championship standings from the returning (to BHRC) former champion Ben Friend in third.

BRC / BRITISH RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON PREVIEW 2024

By admin

After several years of two-wheel/front-wheel drive “hot hatches” being the focus of our top-flight National Championship, competitors were voting with their feet. Numbers had declined to the point where the series, which should possibly be considered as “the pinnacle” of the sport in our country had lost credibility amongst rallying folk and had effectively become a turn-off for the fans.

“THE BRC IS BACK!” was the tagline for the British Rally Championship in 2016.
