Round Regulations will be added soon.

If you wish you may pay using BACs, and scan and e-mail your entry form. This saves you the cost of a stamp and our Entries Secretary some time.

Our first round for 2015 takes us to a Mid Wales location at Pikes Peak in the company of a large wind farm.
This is a venue we have used many times in the past, the course can prove testing, but so can the weather!
We have, even in April, enjoyed some snow and also freezing hailstones. So best come prepared.

  Gary Simpson. Alan Thomas in Walters Arena.

More details of the location and timetable can be found on the BCCC page of this website

A new round this year will be in Hafren Forest, not far from Pikes Peak.

This was last used by Marches almost 10 years ago for the Baja.
Rally HQ and service will be located close to the stage. The course for the Baja was almost 40 miles long, this time it may be a little shorter !

More details of the rounds for 2015 can be found on the BCCC page of this website.

Britpart, the sponsors of the MSA British Cross Country Championship have launched the Britpart Freelander Challenge.

Comprising of 4 rounds, the Britpart Freelander Challenge will tackle any four rounds of the six published BCCC rounds.

In an effort to encourage newcomers to our sport the Freelanders will be standard production vehicles with only the addition of the safety features needed to comply with the requirements of the MSA.
These vehicles will be road legal, in fact they could be used for the family shopping on a Friday and rallying across the moors of Scotland on the Saturday.

The Britpart Freelander Challenge brings a level playing field to our sport. All cars will be identical, only the skill of the driver and navigator will make the difference needed to get in the points.

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 ?




  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.
