Winner of the inaugural London Rally for Heroes, Gary Le Coadou has confirmed his entry for this year’s Aldershot Rally for Heroes in an attempt, along with co-driver Carl Sorensen, to make a Heroes Double!

Excellence is the unlimited ability to improve the quality of everything we do, committing to excellence is not an act it is an attitude – one that drives us to be the best that we can be for our sport.

Already proving to be a development arena for real talent, the main MSA British Rally Championship will continue to be the pinnacle of the sport in the UK and in recognition of this, the cars will run at the front of the qualifying rallies in a modern group. It will again feature just two–wheel drive cars in five new categories, BRC1 to 5 (see below).

Integral to the 2014 Championship will be the new NGK Spark Plugs BRC Challenge Trophy (formerly the BRC Challenge) which will be inter-seeded with the main BRC group, providing all the benefits of participating in the MSA British Rally Championship, but on a smaller budget. The Challenge Trophy runners will complete a shortened version of the overall route and are not allowed to do reconnaissance on gravel. Read More »
