13 Feb GT Class Gets Go Ahead
The MSN Circuit Rally Championship (MNCRC) in association with MSVR, featuring the Michelin Cup and the Protyre Challenge is delighted to announce that the Championship’s GT Class is now live, and entries will be accepted.
In line with current changes to Motorsport UK legislation, and in a first for British rallying, the MNCRC will run a class specifically for all naturally aspirated production GT cars.
Darren Spann, Championship co-ordinator, enthused:
“We are delighted that after all our planning back in August, we are finally able to announce the introduction of this brand-new class for the remaining of the 2018-19 season and for the 2019-20 season. We’ve already received some interest in running this class and anticipate that it will be popular with both competitors and spectators alike. I can’t wait to see who the first competitor will be to take advantage of this brand-new class.”
The announcement is made possible thanks to a change in Motorsport UK regulations which no longer require cars of this type to obtain the expensive FIA homologation and permit cars such as Porsche 911’s and BMW M3’s to compete without the previous engine capacity cap of 3ltr.
The announcement comes ahead of Round 5 of the season at Snetterton. The Championship has already visited Oulton Park, Cadwell Park, Knockhill Racing Circuit and Brands Hatch. Full coverage of each and every round so far this season is already available on Amazon Prime and the Championship social media channels.
I can’t wait to see who the first competitor will be to take advantage of this brand-new class.
Following the visit to Snetterton, the Championship heads to Donington Park and Anglesey before returning to Cadwell Park for its finale in April 2019. Full dates are available on our website.
Following three rounds before Christmas, the Championship now implements this class with immediate effect and competitors are encouraged to understand the new legislation contained within this seasons yearbook and then get their entries in.
