The championship may be cheaper to do due to the fact there's only 6 rounds and no wrcars, but the rallies are still as expensive as last year. Entry for the Pirelli £1000, and the Tesco 99 fuel ain't any cheaper than Sunoco and not nearly as good.

It will cost me more to do 6 rounds of the BRC than it did last year to do 8 rounds of the Evo's (7ancro + jim clarke). But as its GrpN based its probabily the only time I'll be able to compete against the top names in similar machinery.

The higher profile events are good to do but for me the Ancro rallies are the best value if your going across the water.

With the sterling rates against euro is it not cheaper on british or northern drivers to do Tarmac series

Your probabily rite, but the tarmac series is just that, all tarmac. I personaly don't want to do all tarmac, it's hard to beat the gravel. Plus the Irish Tarmac champ. takes up a lot of time, 8 rallies = 16 weekends away (reccies etc). If i'm away from the family 16 weekends, I want more than 8 rallies.

To be honest the best format is the Irish national series. Away friday night home late Sunday/Mon. morn reccie and rally all done, but again all tarmac.
