After an absence that feels longer than a year, it’s great
to welcome the British Rally Championship back to the catalogue.
The revamped format saw the championship slip easily back
into the calendar contesting seven rounds at famous events including the
Circuit of Ireland, Scottish Rally and Rally Isle of Man.
The large entry featured some of the UK and Ireland’s most
talented crews including WRC campaigner Elfyn Evans, multiple BRC champion
Keith Cronin and some international flavour in the shape of Fredrik Åhlen
and Max Vatanen.
The renewed interest meant there were big fields at each
round, the competitions was fierce and the attrition rate was high.
From the start the Fiesta R5s proved a class act, providing
high performance, reliability and affordability, while the evenly matched cars
used by most of the top runners in the field meant the rallying was as close as
any of the spectators could wish for.
The Official Review presents all of the very best highlights
of the seven rounds, including some great aerial footage of the scenic Rally
Isle of Man stage, plus interviews and the usual selection of dramatic in-car
