The 2015 Britpart Cross Country Championship gets underway this weekend (11/12 April) with the support of new series partner RAVENOL oil and the prospect of perhaps the most competitive season ever for Britain’s premier off-road championship.

The iconic Pikes Peak in Mid Wales will be the venue for the season opener with 2014 champion Mike Moran on hand to begin the defence of his crown. He will be using the same AT 4×4 Challenger that took him to victory last year but the team have been working hard during the closed season to rescue the vehicle’s weight as well as getting more power out of its Jaguar engine.

Second car off will be the Land Rover Tornado of Paul Myers from title sponsors Britpart.

Another machine to watch out for will be the Isuzu D-Max of the Jewson D-Max Rally Team driven by Jason Sharpe. Read More »
