Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

A four-event chal­lenge for BMW E36 318TI Com­pacts is in the off­ing for 2016.

The closed-to-club se­ries will be run by Broughton-bret­ton Mo­tor Club and BMW spe­cial­ist Ral­lyprep – which will of­fer kits for the cars. Cars must be built to the Ral­lyprep specs.

Co-driver and Chal­lenge co-or­di­na­tor Bryn­mor Pierce said: “Through­out the year we’ve been hear­ing more and more peo­ple want­ing to bring the fun fac­tor back, noth­ing says fun more than rear-wheel drive. The chal­lenge isn’t aimed as a step­ping stone, purely and sim­ply it’s a place for like-minded peo­ple in iden­ti­cal ma­chines to have fun.”

Pierce will field in­ter­ested par­ties up un­til Jan­uary 16 when the se­ries is due to be for­malised. MN un­der­stands that the se­ries will open with a road rally, fol­lowed by two sin­gle-venue events and a for­est rally de­cider.

Ral­lyprep will as­sist with cars
