Pirelli commits to two years in British Rally Championship
- 16th January 2012, 8:30am
The premium tyre manufacturer has been control tyre to the series since 2007 with the previous agreement due for completion at the end of 2012. However, as part of its ongoing commitment to national-level motorsport, Pirelli has signed a deal with BRC organisers to ensure it is sole tyre provider until the end of 2014.
The BRC takes in six rallies, across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The series kicks off with three gravel rallies starting at the Rallye Sunseeker International in Poole and Bournemouth before heading to Welshpool in Wales for the Bulldog Rally North Wales and then up to the Pirelli International Rally in Cumbria. Competitors and their teams then head over the Scottish border to the Jim Clark International Rally where they contest the first of two tarmac rallies; the second being the Todds Leap Rally Northern Ireland a month later. Finally, the cars return to England to take on the International Rally of Yorkshire.
