More details on single-make series revealed
M-sport team business development manager Andrew Wheatley has released more details about M-sport’s prospective single-make championship ahead of its launch.
Motorsport News broke news of a championship being launched in the UK for M-sports new ‘national’ spec car in November, which is a cheaper version of its Fiesta R2T.
The series is set to run exclusively on British championship rounds.
Wheatley said: “We believe that there’s a gap between the BTRDA ST Trophy and the British Junior Championship. We’ve got this national spec car which is being used in the French Junior Championship.
“It [the national car] works out just under £10,000 cheaper than the R2T, but if you decide you want to upgrade, you can and do that.
“To do BRC Junior you’re looking at £40000-£50000. To do BTRDA it’s probably £12000-15000. There are people who could be looking for something inbetween.
“On the first three BRC events we do, they will be 45 miles so the entry is lower than the full fee. The Nicky Grist Stage will be split to two separate points-scoring events, and Rally Isle of Man will also count as two rounds.”
