Championship update

It’s the start of a new season for the HRCR MN Championship; firstly we are really pleased to continue our association with MotorSport News. Matt James MN’s editor confirmed last week that the paper known as “the voice of British motorsport” had been acquired by Kelsey Media.

Kelsey Media’s Chief Operating Officer, Phil Weeden, commented: “We’re thrilled to have acquired Motorsport News. This is a fabulous product, representing the very heart of grass roots motorsport. With our strong connections to the world of motoring and a passion for all forms of motorsport, we’re looking forward to injecting fresh energy and enthusiasm into Motorsport News.”

We wish Matt and all at Kelsey Media great success for 2020 and beyond, and appreciate the media support that MotorSport News offers our Championship

Preview The Ross Traders Historic Rally 2020

So the season kicks off with the Ross Traders, Paul Morris and his Team, Russ, Rob, Graham et al from Ross + District Motor Sports Club have worked really hard to promote a new look to the event. The test mileage has been increased to 30 miles all within the Caerwent Military Training area and half the test and regularities are scheduled to be in the dark………. so navs bring your head torches

Up at the front I expect to see Ian Crammond, Howard Warren and Simon Mellings – joined this year by Dave Leadbetter and Paul Dyas – but if I had to put a £5 down I’d have to pick Paul Crosby and Ali Procter for the win (so there’s your kiss of death chaps!)

In the “guest” car and new for 2020 the “Mr Tyre Motorsport guest” car (thanks Paul) is Matt Nichol-Jones. Matt was Ginetta Champion in 2005 + 2007 then British GT Champion 2008, he still finds time to race current and historic cars, still managing to podium over 50% of the time! Today his energies are devoted to his race team Academy Motorsport who will run two Ford Mustangs in British GT and the GT4 European Series, please make him feel at home.
