The organisers of Wales Rally GB confirmed continuation of the widely praised Road to Wales scheme for 2015.
Introduced in 2013, the programme rewards Britain’s best rallying talent with free entries into the season-ending Wales Rally GB 12-15 November, providing them with an amazing opportunity to compete against the sport’s elite on the world stage.
The Road to Wales prize roster offered no fewer than 11 free entries into last year’s over-subscribed Wales Rally GB. Six of these were awarded to front-runners from various classes in the 2014 MSA British Rally Championship, the remaining five to the winners of the UK’s five premier national rally championships.
With the BRC taking a brief sabbatical in 2015, those entries have now been transferred to six of the individual rounds that featured on the 2014 BRC calendar: Pirelli Carlisle Rally; Rally North Wales; Rally Isle of Man; RSAC Scottish Rally; Ulster Rally and Jim Clark Rally. Organisers of these events have set up their own selection criteria for the allocation of the Road to Wales prizes.
