His­torics to head to the Re­pub­lic

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The series’s first visit to the Re­pub­lic of Ire­land is a key change for the 2017 Min­tex MSA Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship.

The ALMC Stages near Dublin on July 2 has been added in place of the Red Dragon Rally in South Wales to give the eight-event cal­en­dar three as­phalt events in­stead of two.

“We have re­sponded to our com­peti­tors by ad­just­ing the bal­ance slightly be­tween as­phalt and gravel ral­lies,” said cham­pi­onship man­ager Colin Hep­pen­stall.

“There is a grow­ing move to­wards as­phalt events in his­toric ral­ly­ing and we have re­flected this with our cal­en­dar.”

The Rally Isle of Man will again be a dou­ble-header to make nine rounds.
