Both brands are a staple of British motorsport, with many competitors already using their services and their experience, support and dedication both on and off events is unrivalled in the business. A control fuel in the BRC is essential to creating a fair and level playing field and we hope by giving some stability to our competitors, it will offer better consistency across their rallying season.”
