Leading MSA British Junior Rally Championship driver Ben McKay, the 21 year old Renault Twingo driver, took first place in the Junior category and the Twingo Renaultsport R1 Trophy on Rally Yorkshire and now joins fellow Renault Twingo driver Harry Threlfall as the fifth finalist in the 2013 BRC LIVE Media Trophy in association with Prodrive.

Ben and his media team have consistently supplied quality press releases after every round of this year’s MSA British Rally Championship and in addition, they have always been ready to provide their car and team to the championship for any promotional day, while doing their best to promote the championship.

It was therefore felt by judges that due to these efforts in directly supporting the championship, especially by a team with a relatively modest budget and resources, should be rewarded with the Rally Yorkshire nomination for the Media Trophy.

So far, the finalists consist of Jon Armstrong (R2), James Ford (R2), Harry Threlfall (R1), Daniel McKenna (R2) and now Ben McKay (R1). These drivers will compete at the shootout final (23rd October) for a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend the day with members of Prodrive’s test and engineering team at a test of the latest specification John Cooper Works Mini RRC.

Final task: Drivers wishing to be considered for the final nomination must compile a full package of links, videos and information, for all this year’s press and media coverage, (including final round previews), before Friday 18th October. The winner will be revealed during the Rallye Sunseeker BRC LIVE broadcast on Saturday 19th September.

EXTRA ANNOUNCEMENT – Due to cancellation of Rally North Wales, the Judges hold a wildcard nomination, which will also be announced during Rallye Sunseeker International.
