The MSA Asphalt Rally Championship will return in 2018, with Protyre as the title sponsor, an exciting TV package and a challenging calendar of events.
The revitalised 2018 Protyre MSA Asphalt Rally Championship is designed to return the much-loved sealed-surface series to its former glory days, when the top British Tarmac rally drivers battled for the prestigious title over some of the best asphalt rallies in the UK.
It will be open to a wide variety of cars and classes, and offer a stepping stone for young drivers and a highly competitive arena for the more experienced competitors aiming for overall rally wins and outright title success.
Protyre, the largest suppler of Pirelli, Michelin and Hoosier Motorsport tyres in the UK, won’t just lend its name to the MSA Asphalt Rally Championship – the motorsport side of Protyre, which is based in Stoke-on-Trent, will also provide an on-event service and supply all brands of competition tyres at very competitive rates to all registered contenders, offer an attractive tyre prize fund and work closely to help develop the series on both a sporting and commercial basis.
The partnership has already been successful in securing an exciting TV package. In addition to fans being able to watch highlights of each round on television, they’ll be able to watch the action unfold as it happens, via state-of-the-art live streaming.
All the sporting aspects of the 2018 Protyre MSA Asphalt Rally Championship are currently being finalised with the UK motorsports governing body, and will be unveiled at the championship launch in September.
