JBRC gets £30,000 cash prize and open tyres
The Junior British Rally Championship will change to an open tyre format for 2017, with £30,000 on offer for the series winner.
Last year the Junior BRC was backed by DMACK, with the firm offering a subsidised drive in the Drive DMACK Fiesta Trophy, which supported the World Rally Championship.
BRC manager Iain Campbell says the move was always in the offing as the organisers have always favoured an open cover format.
“DMACK provided fantastic support last year to the whole championship, but particularly with the amazing prize that they put up for the Juniors,” said Campbell. “However, we have always believed that the entire BRC should be an open tyre format if possible, and we will build the prestige of the junior series with all the registered tyre companies committing to the championship rather than individual teams.”
The JBRC will once again be for FIAhomologated R2 specification cars,
