RSAC Scottish Rally - 2018 event statement

RSAC Scottish Rally will not be a round of the 2018 British Rally Championship

The Board of RSAC Motorsport Ltd were very disappointed to be informed by the organisers of the Prestone MSA British Rally Championship (BRC) that the RSAC Scottish Rally would not be a round of the championship in 2018.

The rally has been supportive of the BRC over many years, through thick and thin, and sometimes to its financial detriment.

In 2017, the rally moved from its usual June date specifically to accommodate the desire of the championship to introduce a foreign event to its calendar, and additionally changed many other aspects of the event including the route, service area and finish venue to suit BRC requirements, notwithstanding the challenges these created for the organising team and the adverse impact on the event’s financial budget.

Despite this news, planning for next year’s event is already well underway, with a focus on providing a great event and experience for both competitors and spectators.

With the ongoing valued support and engagement of Dumfries & Galloway Council and the organisers of the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship, the organising team look forward to welcoming everyone to the region for the 2018 Scottish Rally.

2018 Prestone MSA British Rally Championship calendar announced

Posted: August 16, 2017 5:48 AM

As the exciting 2017 title race heads to Ulster this weekend, the Prestone MSA British Rally Championship (BRC) has today (16 August) confirmed its 2018 calendar.

The series will feature six rounds in six territories, as the BRC tours the British Isles, with events in Scotland, England, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man and Wales. A trip to Belgium for the classic Ypres Rally will once again be a popular overseas addition, as the BRC underlines its standing as the world’s premier domestic rally championship.

One of the highlights of the 2018 campaign will be the championship finale, which will be held on the biggest stage possible – Dayinsure Wales Rally GB, the British round of the FIA World Rally Championship. The WRC event will offer BRC crews and their partners the chance to be at the heart of the country’s biggest rally. A double-header format on the legendary Welsh stages will allow competitors to vie for championship honours and also go toe-to-toe with the leading names in world rallying.

The calendar announcement completes a busy week of good news, with the confirmation that title sponsor Prestone has renewed its commitment to Britain’s premier rally series for another year.

IMS Managing Director Ben Taylor

“Putting a calendar together is always a difficult process, particularly when there are more candidate events than we can accommodate. We have had to take some tricky decisions and as a result both the Nicky Grist Stages and the Scottish Rally have missed out this time around. We are really grateful for their commitment to the BRC in the past two years and, as classic events, we wish them every success in 2018.

“As the BRC becomes more popular and successful, we have to ensure that it delivers on other aspects as well as simply the stages and organisation; we need crowds and venues, a strong impact on the local area and the creation of spectacular events to ensure that the championship continues to grow.”

Prestone commits to British Rally Championship for 2018 campaign

Posted: August 16, 2017 5:46 AM

The MSA British Rally Championship is delighted to announce that leading coolant brand Prestone will continue its sponsorship of Britain’s premier rallying series into the 2018 season.

Prestone’s first foray into sponsorship was announced in January and since then the brand has actively supported the British Rally Championship throughout the season. Prestone’s high-profile support has already enhanced the pioneering company’s reputation and visibility, with prominent exposure being generated through the BRC’s far-reaching TV, media, online and social media channels. This is further strengthened by its strong on-event branding and unrivalled spectator engagement, including the popular Prestone Rally Simulator where rally-goers have the opportunity to beat the BRC professionals and pick up some fantastic prizes.

Prestone products are the perfect match for the challenging conditions of the British Rally Championship, as the brand quite literally ‘Excels in Extremes’. Prestone is backing up those claims first-hand, with its products being used by the top teams in the Service Park in 2017. From the damp and rough Scottish forests to the sun-kissed asphalt in Ypres, Prestone’s products have stood up to the variety of conditions and helped crews to spray the podium champagne at the end of each event.

“We are delighted that Prestone has seen the value and success that the partnership with the BRC offers,” said Ben Taylor, Managing Director of championship organiser International Motor Sports. “The Prestone team have really rolled their sleeves up and got stuck in to supporting the championship – engaging with our teams, events, competitors and spectators – and next month they will even take the BRC into Tesco with a new dual-branded pack. To secure the continued backing of such a major brand is a huge endorsement for us and enables us to push forward with the development of the championship to make it even stronger in 2018.”

Head of Marketing for Prestone, Claire Fenton said:
“Following a hugely successful 2017 season we are incredibly excited to be able to support the British Rally Championship for a second year.

“Our team has really got on board with the championship, with us all becoming big fans. It’s been fantastic to be able to offer first fill of Prestone to a number of drivers and then follow their progress across the season.

“The continued sponsorship really cements our partnership with the BRC; we can’t wait to get back into the service park in 2018.”

The news comes at an exciting time for the BRC as with just two events to go, the championship is set to reach fever pitch with the title race wide open heading towards the season finale on the Isle of Man. Swedish star Fredrik Ahlin leads the way from Welshman Osian Pryce at the top of the standings, but only 12 points separate third to sixth. Matt Edwards, Keith Cronin, Rhys Yates and Marty McCormack are all in with a chance of clinching the coveted crown and sealing their place in the history books alongside some of the greatest names in rallying including Burns, McRae, Mikkola and Vatanen.

The championship continues this weekend with the classic John Mulholland Motors Ulster Rally on 17/18 August as the crews tackle two days through the fast, narrow roads around the city of Derry/Londonderry.
