Tynemouth of­fers BTRDA Ju­nior prizes

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Leg­endary tim­ing op­er­a­tion Tynemouth Com­puter Ser­vices turns 40 years of age in 2019, and to cel­e­brate founder Mar­tin Liddle will sup­port the BTRDA Ju­nior Rally Cham­pi­onship with cash prizes.

Liddle and the BTRDA have also been linked for 40 years with Tynemouth tak­ing care of the se­ries’ points and re­sults.

The first, sec­ond and third driv­ers in the Ju­nior se­ries will re­ceive £150, £100 and £75, re­spec­tively, on each event. Co-driv­ers will be awarded £75, £50 and £25, re­spec­tively.

In a move which is ex­pected to help sup­port the re­vival of the 1400 Cham­pi­onship next year, Fuchs Lu­bri­cants has part­nered with the class.

Seed­ing rules changes mid­way through 2018 mean or­gan­is­ers are able to po­si­tion lower-pow­ered cars at the front of the field to re­ceive bet­ter con­di­tions. It is hoped more 1400 en­tries will re­turn to gravel ral­ly­ing after enough lead-time to re­join at the Cam­brian Rally opener in Fe­bru­ary.
