Britpart MSA BCCC 2013

The message below was emailed to all those who have registered for the 2013 championship earlier today. All registered crews were contacted by Lilian and they have agreed to a five round championship.

"It is with regret that the Marches 4x4 Directors Selwyn Kendrick & Philip Turley have had to come to this decision, due to a lack of sufficient entries to run a 6 Round Championship, 2013 will now
be a 5 Round Championship with best 4 scores to count.

We wish to thank all the Competitors who have registered and thank you for your support of pledging the £1500.00 entry fee for 5 rounds instead of 6, we are aware Lilian has spoken to you all personally re this matter and she is going to do her best to get sufficient funds to try and get you all a refund of upto £250.00.

Regards

Selwyn Kendrick & Philip Turley

Myers targets win in inaugral diesel championship

Off-road racing driver Paul Myers is aiming for victory in the new for 2013 Britpart Diesel Cross Country Championship (DCCC).

The new championship was devised after the success last year of Mike “Bumpy” Moran who thrilled the crowds with the speed of his BMW diesel-powered AT Indy Challenger. Interest in the DCCC is expected to be high after the organisers unveiled an extensive prize package including an all-expenses paid exotic holiday in Gloucestershire and a lifetime supply of generators.


Myers has sourced a powerful MAN Marine diesel engine which has recently been on the dyno and is now being installed in his Land Rover ready for the opening round of the DCCC at Pikes Peak later this month.


“The new championship looks really good and we’ll be pushing hard for the win,” said Myers. “The engine is producing 1400hp at the moment but we should have some upgrades by the time we get to Forrest Lodge in June which should give us 1800hp.”


“Diesel is definitely the way to go and I am very surprised to hear that Bumpy has switched a petrol-powered Jag engine for this season. ”

Our reporter tried contacting Moran to discuss his defection but the butler at his chateau in Warrington said he was unavailable for comment.

The DCCC starts on April 20/21 and will consist of six rounds in some of the top off-roading locations in the UK.
