The organisers of the Pirelli MotorsportUK Welsh Forest Rally Championship have announced that North Wales based motorsport retailer Lightninghouse.net has teamed up with the series for 2019 to support their two-wheel-drive challenge.
Throughout the season drivers and co-drivers participating in the challenge will get the chance to win pairs of HRX racing gloves, unique to lightninghouse.net and developed by company director Brynmor Pierce. The main prize for the season, meanwhile, will be two bespoke made to measure racesuits, also manufactured by Lightning House partner brand HRX and four registered crews will also get the chance to run at the Speed and Rally Show taking place at Oswestry Showground on 17 August next year.
“It’s a great honour to have been in a position to put this together with the Pirelli MotorsportUK Welsh Forest Rally Championship. Being current competitors in the two wheel drive challenge in our Fiesta ST, based within Wales and huge fans of the steps the series has taken over the past few years, the fit is ideal, In outing this together we wanted those who perhaps have never considered bespoke racewear or have never been able to try it to really benefit. That’s where the two wheel drive Challenge ticks all the boxes,” said Brynmor Pierce.
Welcoming Lightninghouse’s support, Championship coordinator Dave Evison said, “It’s great to have this prestigious Welsh based brand on board and to be able to offer something to the two wheel drive contenders who are an important part of the Championship. We have been working hard over recent months to continue developing the Championship and we will be announcing the 2019 calendar, along with further initiatives very shortly.”
The full range of HRX Racewear can be found at www.lightninghouse.net and the brand will be present at Autosport International. You can find out more about the Pirelli MotorsportUK Welsh Forest Rally Championship at wnrc.wamc.org.uk, on the Championship Facebook page and on Twitter, @WnRC.
