Leading motorsport accessory and racewear outlet Race and Rally (R&R) will become the title sponsor of the Rally2 Championship in 2019, offering competitors in the five-round series a host of incentives for the season.

Returning to the calendar after a successful debut season the popular series for competitors with any two-wheel-drive rally car will now be able to compete on top-quality forest stage events, whilst aiming for the end of season awards provided by the Belfast based firm.

Race & Rally (R&R) is a leading supplier of motorsport accessories, spares and safety equipment covering the UK, Ireland and into Europe. They are main agents for top-quality brands such as Atech Racing and 3MO Performance Transmissions and cater for all levels of the sport from clubman rallying to International racing.

Their involvement in the championship means the top three overall crew at the end of the season will receive an R&R voucher to spend online or in their shop. First overall will grab a £250 voucher, second place £150 and third will nett £75. Each end of season class winner will also receive a £50 voucher.

Raymond Moore, Managing Director of R&R is delighted to forge a partnership with the innovative series.

“I heard about Rally2 last season when a lot of our UK based customers were clearly disheartened by the running order scenario they were faced with,” says Moore.

“When the governing body changed that, there was still a lot of enthusiasm for the series, offering a real alternative to the championships out there at the moment. It’s a great fit for the Race and Rally brand and we are always eager to expand our awareness on the mainland. We are proud to be involved in its second year and we look forward to another exciting year of the championship.”

The Rally2 championship will also benefit from increased online coverage in its second year, thanks to a deal with motorsport broadcasters Special Stage to produce a bi-event online review of the action from the stages.

Promoted by the Roger Albert Clark Rally Motor Club, Rally2 offers a diverse calendar of events in which they will be able to effectively run first on the road on each event in the series, kicking off with the North Wales Rally Services – Rally North Wales on 30 th March 2019.*

A further four rounds are spread throughout the year including the Pirelli International Rally, The ATL Carlisle Stages, the Eventsigns Woodpecker Stages and the Sunday leg of the Roger Albert Clark Rally in Scotland. The series offers a simplistic class structure, from the entry level Tyro class to the Open-Plus category for more powerful machinery.
