TWINGO TROPHY IN BRC FOR 2013

Renault UK will continue its partnership with the MSA British Rally Championship in 2013, supporting the Twingo Renaultsport Trophy UK (Twingo Trophy) and as official vehicle suppler to the BRC.

The Twingo R1 Trophy UK has attracted new competitors for this season in the form of total BRC newcomers Harry Threlfall and Benjamyn McKay, ably co-driven by Andy Bull and Jason McKay respectively. They will fight it out for a fantastic prize-drive on the final round of the French Rally Championship along with the battle for the British Junior Rally Championship crown.

Renault’s unique position in offering cars in R1, R2 and R3 categories for the British series also continues, with the return of 2012 Twingo R2 Trophy Champion Chris Ingram who will stay with his awesome sounding Twingo R2 pocket-rocket and Joe McGonigle/Ciaran Geaney who will try to stem the tide of Citroëns with their newly acquired Clio R3.

On event support from Monster Sport Europe means that the Renault village will continue to be prominent in the service areas of all rounds, the Pirelli Richard Burns Foundation Rally now counting as the season opener in two weeks time.

Renault UK will supply the British Rally Championship with vehicles throughout the season, enabling transportation of the infrastructure that helps raise the series’ profile on events.

Championship Manager, Mark Taylor said, “It's fantastic to retain the support of Renault UK both in a sporting prospective with the R1 Twingo Trophy and also in assisting us logistically with the kind loan of vehicles. Every year we try to improve the look and feel of the championship on and off rallies, attending non championship events and exhibitions. The upshot of this though is that we have more and more kit to carry around with us. We are therefore very pleased that Renault has generously agreed to supplying support vehicles for the season.”
