M-Sport has announced continued support of the BRC’s driver talent development ethos by offering the 2014 British Rally Champion a prize drive on Wales Rally GB in one of its factory run R5 Fiestas.

The FordFiesta SportTrophy will provide winners using Fiesta rally cars with on event parts vouchers and end of season prize drives. If the winner of the MSA British Rally Championship has driven a Fiesta all season, then they will be entered into the final round of the World Rally Championship, Wales Rally GB in an M Sport run R5.

Championship Manager Mark Taylor:
“This is fantastic news, an example of our recently formed Constructors Commission and the sport working in harmony! Thank you M Sport, Pirelli and Wales Rally GB for providing another great opportunity to showcase our aspiring talent.

“The Commission has approved the upgrading of the R2 Fiesta to R200 specification, meaning Fiesta competitors could vie for BRC1 and overall honours. Plus, the FordFiesta SportTrophy provides prizes throughout all of the BRC categories.”

In addition to the R5 Wales Rally GB opportunity, the highest placed Fiesta driver in the BRC will be rewarded with a test drive in M-Sport’s Ford Fiesta R5, the NGK BRC Challenge winner will get their hands on an R2, plus parts vouchers to the total value of £700 are up for grabs on each event.

M-Sport Managing Director, Malcolm Wilson OBE:
“We have always been keen to support talent at home so I am happy to announce that the FordFiesta SportTrophy scheme will continue for its ninth season in the British Rally Championship. It is a proven route to the sport’s highest level, Elfyn Evans having started his career within the championship in 2007.

“We are also eager to improve the performance of the Fiesta and the new Ford Fiesta R200 will see our cars in much closer competition with R3 cars. We don’t want to see a single manufacturer dominate as it did in 2013, and so we are encouraging our Fiesta drivers to push the limits with a great opportunity to shine on home soil at the end of the season.”

All those wishing to be eligible for the scheme must use a Ford Fiesta, register for the British Rally Championship, use Pirelli tyres and in addition to complying with the BRC rules, display the appropriate Competition Car Insurance and Pirelli decals.
