Britpart Production Sunday Cup.

BCCC production class
  Gary Simpson.  John Pickering.

This is a new potential series that we will be running in an attempt to create a feeder to the main Championship as well as trying to offer something to other potential competitors.

The Series, as its name suggests, will only allow Production vehicles and, obviously, will only run on the Sunday of a round.

Only four rounds will count which could be the best results from any of the 6 BCCC rounds.

The Championship is aimed at both new competitors as well a existing competitors in Hill Rallies who would like to compete on the smoother road of the British Championship as well as running on events that are part of the British Championship.
There are also, probably, people out there who only want, or only able, to compete on Sundays. Where you existing competitors come in is that you may have contacts with people who may be interested in running in this new Series.
For those of you with businesses there may even be a potential to prepare vehicles for the Series.

The Regulations are, loosely, based on the Freelander Regs with a few modifications to allow any production vehicle and limit a few of the modifications allowed in that Championship.

If you would like more information, then please call John Devenport on 07968 124332 or 02476 327052 who has been working with Selwyn and the MSA to put this together.

The regulations can be downloaded from here

About the BCCC Championship.

Previously known as the BORC, the Britpart MSA British Cross Country Championship comprises of six rounds, each round will be run over two days.

Single venues from fast gravel tracks, fields, forests and the wild exposed landscape of England, Scotland and Wales.

Each round will bring the needs for different driver skills, a single stage of between 5 and 10 miles which will be run a number of times over the weekend, typically between 12 and 15.
The championship is open to National A's and B's. As in previous years we are using control tyres from the MSA "Blue Book" list, ref; (L) list 5(a) All- Terrain Tyres. Cars do not need to be road legal.

We will also accept entries from Clubmans, they may enter just for the weekend. This is an ideal way to test the water or to just enjoy a great weekends sport for a small outlay. You will experiance a great atmosphere and enjoy the camaraderie between competitors.

The usual Marches circus will be in attendance and will provide toilets, all day and evening catering together with camping, all of which is usually available from the Friday.

For further details please contact me. For information regarding tyres or other matters relating to vehicles then please contact Vic Palmer our Championship Eligibility Scrutineer on 07850776247

Marches 4x4 .... Who Are We ?

Britpart MSA British Cross Country Championship campsite
  Gary Simpson.  The campsite and service at a BCCC round at Baden Hall.

Marches 4x4 Motorsport Management Ltd was set up and founded in 2000 by four dedicated off-road enthusiasts through which to promote and run the MSA British Off Road Championship rounds and to promote motor sport both on and off road.

2001 was the year that Foot & Mouth raged through the Countryside there were no MSA British Off Road Championship rounds that year and so Marches 4x4 held several single venue Festivals around the Country instead.

In 2002 the team organised the MSA British Off Road Championship which consists of 5 rounds, and are as far apart as South Wales and Scotland.
Each round is held over two days and is a single venue event with up to 14 runs.

We hold an annual Championship Awards Dinner which is held in the Midlands and is attended by both competitors and the organising team.

Most of the Marches Team are involved with several other events, and have ran a stage on a number of stage rallies in addition to providing radio control, safety radio crews, course cars, course closing cars, stage commanders, Clerks of the course, event safety officers, setting up stages and marshalling.

Marches 4x4 Motorsport Management Ltd is a non-profit making organisation and we are grateful for the time and assistance from all our team members and volunteers who give freely to promote and develop the sport.
