Rallye Sunseeker gears up as opener for 2012 British Rally Championship

Rallye Sunseeker will next week kick off the 2012 MSA British Rally Championship in style when crews will set out on their 2012 campaign in and around the Forests of Poole and Bournemouth.

Organised by Southern Car Club, and winner of the coveted BRC Rally of the Year 2011 award the Organisers have a compact event planned for all the crews that will attend.

Speaking to Rallye Sunseeker Mark Taylor, Managing Director (UK Rally Limited) told us that “It’s fantastic to be back in southern England for the first round of the new season on Rallye Sunseeker. The organisation here is first class, testament to winning the Best Event award in 2011. If there is one rally in the UK calendar which demonstrates to me the near perfect template by having a real buzz and regional presence, engaging with the local community, providing corporate opportunities and a dynamic public show worthy of a top class sporting event, then Rallye Sunseeker is it.”

With the scene all set for some frantic action next weekend, Clerk of the Course Rob Pike told us “Its terrific that we are welcoming back the BRC crews to Southern England again this year. We had a good event last year and the weather was kind to us, and we are all looking forward to next week in Poole and Bournemouth where we intend to test the crews really well.”
