WWRS14 Kumho ClubmansKumho Tyres has confirmed support for the new Clubmans Challenge within the 2014 West Wales Rally Spares R.A.C. Rally Championship by offering two tyres at each of the seven rounds. The winner of the pair of tyres will be drawn from the hat among the crews contesting the Clubmans Challenge.

Running within the WWRS R.A.C. Rally Championship, the Kumho Clubmans Challenge is aimed at recognising crews competing on limited resources. To be eligible for the challenge, drivers must use no more than six tyres per rally. Any punctured tyres will count as part of the six-tyre allocation.

The crews will compete over the same classic stages as the main championship, with the best six scores from eight rallies counting towards the end-of-season total. The Kumho Clubmans Challenge will run alongside the main R.A.C. Championship and will be a class and category-based challenge, allowing crews from any of the categories to be the Clubmans Challenge champions.

For each car competing in the R.A.C. Clubmans Challenge, six tyres will be marked at scrutineering and only these tyres may be used during the rally. Any tyres from a previous event that the competitor wishes to use must be taken to scrutineering and re-marked as part of the set of six for that event.

“We have pledged to try and contain costs and maintain a level playing field and the Kumho Clubmans Challenge is a major part of that commitment,” said Championship manager Colin Heppenstall. “We are very grateful to Kumho for its generous support of this initiative and for providing welcome assistance to crews competing on limited budgets.”
