The MRF Tyres BTRDA Rally Series makes a welcomed return to the national stage rallying calendar on March 11th. The Malcolm Wilson Stages Rally will once again take up the honours as the season curtain raiser for the 2023 Championships, where an exciting eight-round calendar is on the cards.
The MRF Tyres BTRDA Rally Series ventured into the Forests of North Yorkshire for its penultimate round of the 2022 season. The fast gravel stages dotted around the Pickering area offered up 45 competitive miles across those classic Yorkshire tests which have been synonymous with British rallying over decades.
The Quinton Motorclub organised Nicky Grist Stages played host to Round 5 of the 2022 MRF Tyres BTRDA Rally Series; where 8 gravel stages covering some 44 competitive miles awaited the crews from its rally HQ in Builth Wells, Wales.
The MRF Tyres BTRDA Rally Championships remained in the North and ventured into the legendary Kielder Forest complex for the fourth round of the 2022 series. From the Northumberland market town of Hexham, 6 gravel stages (two loops of three) awaited some 86 crews who contested the rally.
Just five months had passed since the Rally Nuts Stages closed the 2021 MRF Tyres BTRDA Rally season and since then, there had been little rest for Midlands Manner Motor Club as they prepared to host the second round of the 2022 Championship.
Just two weeks had passed since the Cambrian Rally took place over the World Class gravel stages of North Wales and the BTRDA was soon back in action on the Rally Nuts Stages for the final round of the 2021 MRF Tyres Rally Series.
The Championship contenders faced more of the World Class Welsh Stages that we know and love, only this time they were a just little further south in the Myherin and Hafren Forest Complexes.
