Jane Evans is to step down as Protyre Motorsport UK Asphalt Rally Championship Co-ordinator at the end of the 2021 season, having run the series on a day-to-day basis on behalf of the BTRDA for four years.

The former rally co-driver took over the reins in 2017, and masterminded the return of the series in 2018 after its one-year sabbatical.

With title sponsorship from Protyre, an exciting calendar of events and a new promotional team working under Jane’s leadership, she was able to return the Protyre Motorsport UK Asphalt Rally Championship to the status of the UK’s premier sealed-surface series. Read More »

Having won the Protyre Motorsport UK Asphalt Rally Championship in both 2018 and 2019, Jason Pritchard will attempt to complete a title winning hat trick when he contests the series again in 2021.

Having won the British Historic Rally Championship for a record-breaking third time in a row in 2017, Jason switched to the Asphalt Rally Championship in 2018 – winning three rallies and claiming the title in style in his immaculate North Road Garage-backed Ford Focus WRC.

Co-driven by Phil Clarke, Jason successfully defended his title in 2019 by winning the first three rounds and coming home second on the Old Forge Garage Mewla Rally and third on the final Ford Parts Cheviot Stages Rally to secure back-to-back titles. Read More »

Damian Cole is aiming to win the Protyre Motorsport UK Asphalt Rally Championship for a seventh time this year – and be the first driver to win the coveted title in a WRC2/Rally2 spec car, as he contests Britain’s premier seal-surface series in an ex-works Škoda Fabia R5.

The Abergavenny driver won the Asphalt title five years running (2010-2014) and again in 2016. He narrowly missed out on the title in 2019, finishing second by just one point, after the dropped scores rule worked against him.

Having successfully rallied a variety of powerful cars – including a Ford Focus RS WRC05, Ford Fiesta RS WRC, two Hyundai Accent WRCs, a Subaru Impreza S5 WRC, a Metro 6R4 and four Darrians (to name but a few) – in a rally career dating back to 1995, this will be the first time that Cole has rallied an R5 car.
