Clive King and Anton Bird, the 2016 Mini Sport Mini Cup champions.
The UK’s most popular Asphalt Historic Stage Rally Championship run by the HRCR club announces its 2017 calendar.
This year the championship will visit England, Wales, Scotland and the now traditional trip to the iconic Isle of Man. Similar to this year it will be a 6 event, 7 round championship with the Rally Isle of Man counting as 2 rounds. The events have been carefully selected to appeal to the clubman competitor looking to use their historic rally cars at some of the best available asphalt venues in the UK. New to the championship this year are the Solway Coast Rally in the Scottish Border region and the Cheviot Stages Rally taking crews across the challenging roads on Otterburn.
Mini Sport will continue to support the ever popular Mini Cup and there will be even more Minis with the launch of the new Mini Sport Junior Mini Cup. The Junior Cup will run over the 5 mainland UK events.
The Championship will be officially launched and registrations will open at the HRCR Open Day at the British Motor Museum Gaydon on Saturday the 14th January 2017.
