World Rally Championship is GO for 2018, the first round is Rally d’Italia Sardegna; the first week of June. There is such a positive response for the Grand Opportunity package and what it can offer for £1,000 that it gave me the confidence to GO for it! Thank you to everyone who has signed up so far. There are a lot of places to fill, it is great that people are seeing the value in the returns and are grabbing the opportunity to be involved.

The realistic deadline to be in the growing network and have the branding in place on the rally car and website by Rally d’Italia Sardegna, is Thursday 17th May, less than 1 week away.

I am looking forward to introducing everyone in the GO network to each other for fantastic B2B opportunities. The GO places are limited, set to a maximum of 200 places. Read More »

Azerbaijan delivered our best result to date since returning to the sport in 2016. We appreciate it took special circumstances, but it does not take anything away from the fact we are now in a position to capitalise on any opportunities. Our progress is clearly illustrated in the data in a number of ways; for example our gap to pole has halved from last year.

The start of the European season now needs to see a consolidation of that performance. We will be helped in Spain by a step on the engine side with new fuel and some aero tweaks to reflect the characteristics of the track. Read More »
