BHRC / RD6 / ARGYLL RALLY 2024

By admin

The Motorsport UK FUCHs Lubricants British Historic Rally Championship would venture to the picturesque Cowal Peninsula in Scotland for the sixth round of its 2024 season.

The Dunoon Presents Argyll Rally has earned a good reputation among the Asphalt Championship fraternity since it joined their series back in 2022. When speaking to Xlerate ahead of the season, BHRC Championship Manager Colin Heppinstall talked of how he wanted to add “well-known” Asphalt events with “good reputations” to the expanded Championship calendar this year and the Argyll along with the Manx were the ones that everyone “loved” or “raved about”.

For Rounds 4 & 5 of its 2024 season, The FUCHS Lubricants, Motorsport UK, British Historic Rally Championship would return to the Isle of Man for the first time since 2017 for a doubleheader points scoring opportunity. A place that has a rich history in Motorsport and indeed British Rallying, the Isle of Man offers up the ideal playground of quality closed roads around the stunningly picturesque Island for a two-day event covering 126 stage miles, which was a very welcomed return to the series.

BHRC / RD3 / RALLYNUTS SEVERN VALLEY STAGES 2024

By Andrew Scott

For the third round of the Fuchs Lubricants British Historic Rally Championship, we travel 43 miles due south (on the A483) from Welshpool (RD2 Rally North Wales), to Builth Wells showground for the fiftieth running of the Severn Valley “Rallynuts” Stages.

Into their seventh year of sponsoring the Midland Manner Motorclub run event, a bumper entry would greet the Crews in Builth, with Rallynuts featuring on the Probite British Rally Championship roster for the first time along with three other major championships and perhaps the strongest loose surface entry list the UK had seen for a very long time. In BHRC terms, this was the first time since 2017 that it would form a round of the BHRC.

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.
