WWRS14 responseColin Heppenstall, manager of the West Wales Rally Spares R.A.C. Rally Championship, says he is delighted with the early response to the championship after receiving the 50th crew registration today (Friday 24 January).

The championship season starts in just over a week’s time on the Red Kite Stages (Sunday 2 February) and 60 registered contenders are due to line up for the start of the rally in Llandovery. With a near capacity entry, the Red Kite will get the UK gravel rallying season off to a flying start and the R.A.C. Rally Championship has played an important role in supporting the event, organised by Amman and District Motor Club.

With 50 crews already registered and at least another 25 planning to sign-up at the Red Kite documentation on Saturday (1 February), the championship is well on course to meet its ambitious target of 100 registrations for 2014. As many as 20 more crews are due to join the championship at round two, the Mid Wales Stages (2 March). Importantly, the early registrations include 20 crews that are new to the R.A.C. Championship and a number that are new to rallying as well as several returning to the sport after a long break.

Heppenstall said: “When we launched the 2014 championship last October, we set ourselves the goal of reaching 100 registered contenders this year. We had 90 last year, and we want to grow that number by between 10 and 15% for 2014.”
