13 Aug Protyre Sign on for Another Year
The MSN Circuit Rally Championship (MNCRC) in association with MSVR, featuring the Michelin Cup and the Protyre Challenge are delighted to announce the return of the Protyre Challenge after extending its partnership with challenge sponsor Protyre ahead of the 2018-19 season.
Following a successful 2017-18 season, the renewal of this exciting partnership sees Protyre once again installed as the official Tyre Supplier. As an official partner, Protyre Motorsport will be on hand to provide all drivers with a range of great tyres and prices at all Championship events. Maintaining a competitive advantage in motorsport is a constant challenge, but this partnership allows MNCRC competitors the opportunity to access Protyre Motorsport’s Tyre Services, and their range of ultra-high-performance tyres at competitive prices, on all eight rounds.
As part of the partnership, the Protyre Challenge once again returns having proved extremely popular in its first year. The Protyre Challenge is a competition that provides MSN Circuit Rally Championship competitors with smaller budgets, the opportunity to compete for honours and win tyres from Protyre. It is a separate challenge, integrated into the MNCRC, which is run over four rounds (1-4 & 5-8).
To enter, competitors must be in either Class A, B or C and run on 15” wheels with tyres purchased from Protyre. These can be pre-ordered by competitors and brought to the event by Protyre Motorsport, who will have a truck inn attendance at every round throughout the season.
Darren Spann, Championship co-ordinator, enthused; I’m delighted to have Protyre on hand at all our events this is essential for our competitors. Shaun and his team will have the best in tarmac rally tyres available for our Championship, including the superb Michelin tyres. 2018-19 really is looking like being the best yet.
Ahead of registrations opening at the end of August, planning for the 2018-19 MSN Circuit Rally Championship season is hotting up, with an enhanced media package having already been announced, brand new sponsorship in the form of Beatson’s Direct and now the return of the Protyre Challenge.
The Championship kicks off in November with the Neil Howard Stages at Oulton Park, before heading to Cadwell Park and Knockhill Circuit before Christmas 2018. Resuming in January 2019, the Championship heads to Brands Hatch, Snetterton, Donington Park and Anglesey before returning to Cadwell Park for its finale in April 2019. Full dates are available on our website.
