Regs available for Britpart BCCC

Regulations for the 2009 Britpart MSA British Cross Country Championship (B.C.C.C.) are now available. The championship will consist of six "competitive safari" events between April and October held at such venues as Walter’s Arena and Radnor forest.

Each event will be held over two days and will consist of approximately 80-100 competitive miles. The opening round is on the army ranges near Brough in Cumbria and it takes place on the weekend of 11/12th April.

Competitive safaris are the UK's offroad motorsport equivalent of a multi-use stage rally. A course is set out, usually around 6-10 miles long, and the competitors are given a set number of laps to achieve over the weekend. Each of the laps is timed and the lowest aggregate time at the end of the day wins.

A wide variety of vehicles take part in the events, from almost standard production vehicles to purpose-built specials such as the BMW M3-engined 6R4 of Rochdale’s Phil Ibbotson pictured.
