05 Aug Championship takes a year off as rallies continue
After much deliberation and consideration, the organisers of the MSN Circuit Rally Championship in a/w MSVR featuring The Michelin Cup and the Protyre Challenge (MSNCRC) announce that the decision has been taken to rest the Championship for the 2022-23 season.
After 3 years of practically non-stop organisation, including several reorganisations due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the decision has been taken to pause the Championship for a year.
The personal resource and commitment to organise a quality championship is immense, but absolutely necessary to ensure that competitors get value for money and the Championship is a success. While purely done on a voluntary basis, this has not got easier year-on-year, but we are resolute that previous standards should be maintained, and we should always strive to improve upon them.
Darren Spann, Championship Manager, said: “Due to the pressures and workload of the past three years, along with all the organising team’s personal work and family commitments, we have reluctantly agreed that now is the time to regroup, review, refocus and ultimately relaunch the Championship.
We recognise that this news will disappoint competitors and spectators alike, but hopefully one that people will understand and appreciate. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the competitors, spectators, organisers, marshals, and sponsors for their support over the past 7 years.”
The rallies themselves will continue to run and we encourage your continued support to the individual clubs and the circuits. We look forward to seeing everyone back in 2023 relaunched and reinvigorated.
