DMACK Shootout spot prize for Btrda-supporting Fiesta ST Trophy
The Btrda-based Fiesta ST Trophy will offer its winner a chance to compete for a Drive DMACK Trophy campaign in the world championship in 2017.
Tyre firm DMACK runs a shootout, won this year by Jon Armstrong, which features selected drivers from the current series, plus winners of the Vatanen Touch Trophy – chosen by DMACK ambassador Ari.
This year’s ST Trophy will join the other contestants in the shootout where a driver is chosen for a subsidised season in the Wrc-supporting Drive DMACK Trophy next year.
ST Trophy co-ordinator John Pritchard believes the prize package of the series – which is supporting the BTRDA on all rounds this year – is unrivalled.
“It’s great news that DMACK are providing the Fiesta ST Trophy winner with the chance to win a supported drive in the Drive DMACK Fiesta Trophy,” said Pritchard.
“It adds a huge amount of value to the Fiesta ST Trophy, and it creates a cost-effective opportunity for a driver.”
The series also offers the top junior driver free tyres for the British Rally Championship in 2017, also supported by the Cumbrian tyre firm.
DMACK’S Glenn Patterson said: “The trophy is a great way to not only help competitors make the transition into the DMACK Junior BRC, but the prize of an opportunity to win a funded drive is also a real boost.”
