ST Tro­phy does Vi­tal Equip­ment prize deal

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

The Fi­esta ST Tro­phy will ben­e­fit from the back­ing of Vi­tal Equip­ment for the re­main­der of 2016.

The new link means the cham­pi­onship, which is part of the BTRDA Series, will re­ward one crew with a race suit, gloves and un­der­wear as part of a prize pack­age for a se­lected driver and co-driver.

A panel of judges – to be an­nounced in the com­ing weeks – will se­lect “the driver and co-driver that have been deemed to demon­strate out­stand­ing abil­ity over the course of the series”.

Founder of the ST Tro­phy John Pritchard said: “We re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate Vi­tal Equip­ment’s sup­port and it demon­strates our con­tin­ued com­mit­ment in de­vel­op­ing the series for ex­pe­ri­enced and young driv­ers.

“It is go­ing to be a tough call se­lect­ing a win­ner, as so many driv­ers are show­ing their im­prove­ment in pace and abil­ity with each round.”

Vi­tal Equip­ment Di­rec­tor Alis­tair Roberts added: “We are pleased to be sup­port­ing the new ST Tro­phy and have been im­pressed with how it has de­vel­oped in such a short time.”

The series – which is new for 2016 – also boasts a tie-up with DMACK of­fer­ing free tyres to the cham­pion should they progress into the Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship.

ST Tro­phy has proved pop­u­lar in its first sea­son in 2016
