Gwynnespeed Chal­lenge opens C2 Max class to all 1600cc mo­tors

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

The Gwynnespeed Rally Chal­lenge will open up its Max class to all 1.6-litre Citroen C2s in 2017.

Or­gan­is­ers had orig­i­nally in­tended to in­tro­duce the class for cars built to Gwynnespeed’s own Max spec­i­fi­ca­tions, but have now elected to al­low all vari­ants of the 1600cc ma­chine.

“We’re open­ing up the Max class to any 1.6-litre C2s,” said or­gan­iser Holly Robin­son. “That opens it up to things like the R2 Max. We know there’s a lot of driv­ers out there who don’t re­ally know what to do with their cars in terms of the cham­pi­onship.”

While the cal­en­dar will stay the same in 2017, the plan is to take in more na­tional events for the 2018 sea­son.

“The cal­en­dar is set for next year as we’ve of­fered free en­tries for the cham­pi­onship events for next year. Hope­fully in 2018 we’re look­ing to be­come more na­tional and move away from our cur­rent area of events.”
