WALES RALLY GB SUPPORTS THE UK'S MAJOR NATIONAL RALLY CHAMPIONSHIPS IN 2014
• Highly successful Road to Wales initiative expanded for 2014
• Free entries offered to all national rally champions
• Opportunity for Britain's best to shine on WRC stage
The winners of the UK's premier national rally championships will all receive free entries into this year's Wales Rally GB (13-16 November) as a key component of the on-going 'Road to Wales' initiative.
Introduced 12 months ago, the innovative and far-reaching Road to Wales scheme included a number of different programmes all of which combined to revitalise Britain's concluding round of the FIA World Rally Championship in 2013.
Building on that success, which resulted in crowds returning to the legendary Welsh forest stages in record numbers, the top three finishers in the country's premier 2014 MSA British Rally Championship (BRC) will again be rewarded with invitation entries into Wales Rally GB, as will the two crews that win the British Junior and RallyTwo categories within the BRC.
Adding to the incentive, both the 2014 BRC Challenge Trophy champion and winner of the BRC 'Stars of the Future' also will be offered free entries - this time into the three-day National Rally that runs alongside the star-studded international event and shares many of the same challenging special stages.
No cost entries into the National event will also be provided to the winner of each of the MSA English Rally Championship, the Pirelli MSA Welsh Forest Rally Championship, the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship and McGrady Insurance MSA Northern Ireland Rally Championship as well as the BTRDA Rally Series. This swells the number of prize entries to an impressive dozen.
