"Top stuff!" Autosport
The 2009 MSA British Rally Championship delivered fast and furious drama over every mile of gravel and tarmac – and now you can share the excitement, and all the thrills and spills, of a gripping title battle.
This is the complete story of the down-to-the wire championship fight, with comprehensive coverage of all six rounds of the BRC season. Superb footage, including plenty from inside the cars, puts you in the hot seat as we follow the edge-of-the-seat title showdown, while interviews with the stars ensure you get the full stories behind the special stage drama.
Three-times British Champion Mark Higgins started the season as favourite, but the veteran would face a strong challenge from a field full of young chargers. As the season got underway on the slippery stages of North Wales, it was Irishman Keith Cronin, with co-driver Greg Shinnors, who emerged as the greatest threat – taking his Mitsubishi Evo 9 to the narrowest of victories over the Subaru Impreza of Manxman Higgins and co-driver Bryan Thomas.
The pair would trade blows throughout the season, sharing the points lead after the fourth round in the Isle of Man. When Cronin got too close for comfort to the scenery in Ulster, the scene was set for the most thrilling finale – and we bring you every vital, heart-in-the-mouth highlight from the Yorkshire showdown.
The title would be decided in the most dramatic of fashions, and the in-car footage in the official review lets you share the heartbreak – and the bone-shaking smash – which saw the BRC crown a new champion.
The British Championship can always be relied on for fireworks, and the official review is packed with all the unmissable moments, including Molly Taylor’s hedge-leaping in the Isle of Man, Alastair Fisher carrying on the family tradition and defending champion Guy Wilks’ blazing back into action. Plus, there’s a complete in-car stage from the Ulster International courtesy of Higgins.
