13 Mar: BTRDA 2021 C’Ship

The BTRDA is pleased to announce that regulations and registrations for the 2021 MRF Tyres

Details of the BTRDA Rally Series are now available at:


It is currently envisaged that the Series will begin in June and feature eight rounds, of which each competitor’s five best scores will count towards their final Championship positions.

Covid restrictions dictate that the traditional pre-event Signing-On sessions will not take place and, hence, the opportunity to actually register for the BTRDA Series on events will be severely compromised. Nevertheless, we want you to join in some ‘Serious Fun’ and, hence, we would implore prospective contenders to avail themselves of the online registration system prior to their first appearance of the season.

Don’t forget that, if you registered for the 2020 BTRDA Rally Series, the Championship element of the fee has been carried forward into this year, leaving you purely with the renewal of your BTRDA Membership, the cost of which has been pegged at £30.00 for another year.

Euan Thorburn/Paul Beaton were the BTRDA Gold Star Champions in 2019 and Stephen Petch/Michael Wilkinson were leading the charge last year before we were forced to call a halt to the proceedings. So, we can’t wait to see who will take the limelight in the Gold, Silver & Bronze Stars once we’re up and running once more!

Final details are still to be agreed but we can confirm that the team from ‘Special Stage’ will be on hand to record the action from every event in the forthcoming season.
