ST Trophy does Vital Equipment prize deal
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
