The MSA British Rally Championship has confirmed its proposed calendar for the 2017 season.
With seven rounds in six territories, the 2017 BRC will traverse the United Kingdom with two rounds in Wales and one each in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland – all of which featured on this year’s calendar.
The season will again conclude with a double points rally on the Isle of Man, but the long Manx event will be split into two legs, with equal points awarded for each.
In keeping with the BRC’s international pedigree, the championship will reach overseas audiences with a visit to the legendary Ypres Rally in June for the demanding asphalt roads of northern Belgium. It effectively replaces the Circuit of Ireland after promoters cancelled it last month due to lack of sponsorship.
