The MSA British Rally Championship has today confirmed the launch of a new championship for the 2012 season, the RAVENOL OILS BRC Privateers Cup.
RAVENOL, the high performance oil and lubricant manufacturer who last month agreed a long term technical partnership with the British Rally Championship as the official oil and lubricant partner to the BRC, has become the title sponsor of the new championship which is designed to recognise and reward privateer entrants in the UK’s premier rally series.
The “RAVENOL OILS BRC Privateers Cup” is open to competitors in the BRC who are not representing registered motorsport companies competing in the BRC Teams series. There are no age limit or restrictions, and the best 5 scores from 6 events count towards the end of season classification. The winner will be presented with the “RAVENOL OILS BRC Privateers Cup” and £2,000 of product sponsorship for their 2013 campaign at the end-of-season BRC Awards Ceremony on 17th November 2012.
Mark Taylor, BRC Championship Manager comments, “We are delighted that RAVENOL have increased their commitment to the BRC in sponsoring this new-for-2012 championship, which we firmly believe shows the BRC’s commitment to our privateer competitors”
David Mott, Sales Director of German Oil, RAVENOL’s UK distributor adds, “We believe this further demonstrates RAVENOL’s commitment to supporting the grass roots of British Motorsport and having seen the competitiveness of the British Rally Championship this year it looks set to be a fiercely fought series”
