The full schedule for the 2012 Dunlop/WONAGO MSA British Historic Rally Championship has been unveiled.

The key change from 2011 is that the BHRC management team has taken the difficult decision to drop the Isle of Man Historic Rally from the main BHRC. The event will remain as a round of the Water End Asphalt Cup, but is replaced in the main schedule by the return of the Harry Flatters Rally on Epynt. The Isle of Man’s place in the full BHRC will be reviewed again for 2013.

As well as confirming the 2012 schedule, the BHRC has extended the exclusive Dunlop tyre supply contract for a fourth year. For 2010, the MSA awarded a five-year contract to the Historic Rally Car Register to manage the championship. The current agreement will take the championship through until at least 2014 under the same management.

The full BHRC calendar is:
Sun 4 March; Mid Wales Stages (gravel)
Sat 31 March; Bulldog Rally (gravel)
Sat 28 April; Pirelli Historic Rally (gravel)
Sat 9 June; Severn Valley Stages (gravel)
Sun 29 July; Harry Flatters Rally (asphalt)
Fri/Sat 17/18 August; Ulster Historic Rally (asphalt)
Fri/Sat 7/8 Sept; Tour of Flanders (asphalt)
Sat 6 Oct; Colin McRae Stages (gravel)

Water End Asphalt and Gravel Cups continue
