The 69th year of SERIOUS FUN…!
The BTRDA [British Trial & Rally Drivers Association] are pleased to announce the 2022 MRF Tyres BTRDA Rally Series and confirm that the 2022 Championship registrations are now open.
The 2022 MRF Tyres BTRDA Rally Series incorporates the prestigious BTRDA Gold Star® Championship, the BTRDA Silver Star® Championship exclusively for 2-wheel drive cars, plus the Fuchs Lubricants BTRDA Bronze Star Championship for cars up to 1400cc. There is also the MRF Tyres BTRDA Rally First Cup which provides an opportunity for competitors to participate in UK forest rallying at the lowest possible cost. The JORDAN Road Surfacing BTRDA Historic Cup will include cash incentives on each of the championship rounds. The popular Rallye R2 Cup will continue as will the exciting BTRDA Junior R2 1600 Cup. The ST Trophy will also be an integral part of the BTRDA Rally Series in 2022.
The BTRDA Rally Series is the most popular stage rally championship in the UK and will continue to provide competitors and followers with some Serious Fun! The calendar includes eight one-day forest stage rallies, starting with the Malcolm Wilson Rally in March and finishing with the Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally in North Wales at the end of October. We are grateful for the wholehearted commitment of all the event organising teams, because without their efforts, especially during the last couple of years, we would not be able to promote such a successful rally championship
