The MSN Circuit Rally Championship (MNCRC) in association with MSVR, featuring the Michelin Cup and the Protyre Challenge are proud to announce the re-launch of the Protyre Challenge, after extending its partnership with title sponsor Protyre Motorsport ahead of the 2019-20 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 on the best tarmac rally championship, including the superb Michelin tyres. 2019-20 really is looking like being the best yet.
As an official partner, Protyre Motorsport will be on hand to provide all drivers with a range of great tyres and advice on all things tyres at all Championship rounds.

To enter, competitors must be in either Class A, B or C and run on 15” wheels with tyres purchased from Protyre.
In a new addition to the prize package this season, all SORT Oils prizes will be only be available to Protyre Challenge competitors. ORT Oils will provide on each round the winners of Class A, B and C of the Protyre Challenge a voucher of £75 to be used against SORT Oils.
