2017 Ravenol BTRDA Rally Series

Serious Fun in 2017 !
The BTRDA are pleased to provide more information about the 2017 RAVENOL BTRDA Rally Series and confirm that championship registration is now open.
The 2017 RAVENOL BTRDA Rally Series, which will include the 64th Gold Star and Silver Star Rally Championships plus the Thomas Panels BTRDA 1400 and BTRDA Rally First Championships and the BTRDA Historic Cup, BTRDA Production Cup and Fiesta ST Trophy, is consistently the most popular rally championship in the UK and will continue to provide the very best selection of Nat B forest stage rallies.
The 2017 calendar includes eight one-day events, starting with the Cambrian Rally in February and finishing with the Trackrod Forest Stages in North Yorkshire on 30th September. The final points table will be based on a competitor’s best 6 scores, which provides some flexibility to fit in the events around family or business commitments or even to recover from an expensive car problem.
