Round 5 of the Motorsport UK British Rally Championship is in Wales this weekend
The Motorsport UK British Rally Championship is heading to west Wales this weekend where the Get Connected Rali Ceredigion will join the calendar after an inaugural running in 2019.
Crews will kick off with a double run around Aberystwyth town centre before heading out onto the moorland roads for 14 competitive miles on Saturday afternoon. Sunday will host a majority of the competitive miles kicking off with the 17-mile Llanfihangel stage. A total of 71 competitive miles will be run on the Sunday, all run on tarmac.
Four-time BRC champion Keith Cronin will lead the charge with a significant lead on points from second-placed Osian Pryce. Both Polo GTI drivers have traded blows on the 2022 season’s tarmac rounds, taking two wins each so far in the championship, which could make Rali Ceredigion the most exciting round so far.
All the action will kick off from tomorrow, so make sure to check in with BRC’s coverage at www.britishrallychampionship.co.uk or by following them on social media: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using #BRC.
Motorsport UK British Rally Championship – Round 4: Grampians Rally results
Keith Cronin underlined why he is a four-time Motorsport UK British Rally Champion, setting the fastest time on all but one stage of the Voyonic Grampian Forest Rally on Saturday 13 August, securing a scintillating victory in Scotland and his second win of the season.
The Irishman, along with co-driver Mikie Galvin, returned an impeccable performance over the event’s six stages, battling low-hanging dust to take his Pirelli-shod Volkswagen Polo to his first BRC win on gravel since 2012. Fellow Volkswagen pilot Osian Pryce would take second place in a dramatic final stage thriller, battling with Ruari Bell, who would take his maiden BRC podium in third.
Every round of the championship this season has been a dry affair and the Grampian was no different. As the UK continued to bask in a lengthy heatwave, the blistering heat added to the challenge for the crews with the super-fast Kincardineshire forests just outside of Aberdeen providing a tough test on the dry and hard gravel stages.
