BHRC confirms Holton Homes Clubman Challenge



The popular Holton Homes Clubman Challenge will be an integral part of the 2016 Mintex MSA British Historic Rally Championship, offering competition for crews using no more than six tyres on each gravel round of the championship.

As the BHRC starts its second season under the management of the Roger Albert Clark Rally Motor Club, the Clubman Challenge is an important initiative to contain costs for competitors and help reduce damage to forest roads.

To be eligible for the Challenge, drivers must use no more than six tyres per rally. Any punctured tyres will count as part of the six-tyre allocation. For each car competing in the Clubman Challenge, six tyres will be marked at scrutineering at each event and only these tyres may be used during the rally. Any tyres from a previous event that the competitor wishes to use must be taken to scrutineering and re-marked as part of the set of six for that event.

The Holton Homes Clubman Challenge will run alongside the main MSA British Historic Rally Championship and will be a class and category-based challenge, allowing crews from any of the categories to be the Clubman Challenge champions.

“This will be the third season of the Clubman Challenge and it has proved to be a great success. It brings a degree of rallymanship into the equation as the type of tyres, compounds, tyre pressures and driving style will all come into play,” said Championship manager Colin Heppenstall. “It is an important initiative in helping to contain the cost of competing.”

The 2016 Mintex MSA British Historic Rally Championship starts on the Red Kite Stages on Sunday 21 February and more details are available fromwww.redkitestages.co.uk
