DMACK Shootout spot prize for Btrda-sup­port­ing Fi­esta ST Tro­phy

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

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.”
