BCCC crews all set for Brynffynon battle

The Britpart MSA British Cross Country Championship resumes next weekend (14/15th May) with round two being held on the Brynffynon course near Llanwonno in the Rhondda Valley.

The venue has never been used for motorsport before and the landowner and championship organisers have arranged a course made up of farm tracks, moorland roads, pasture land and off-road sections which will test the drivers and their machines to the limit.

An exciting round 1 at Myherin forest near Aberystwyth saw 2010 champion Tim Dilworth kick off his title defence in style as he and navigator Anthony Brinkman took victory in their Peugeot 206 STi. Richard Kershaw returned to the championship to take second place in his GSR 206 Evo 9 with Justin and Louise Birchall rounding off the top three after two days of competition.

The Brynffynon action will start at 10.00am on Saturday and again at 09.00am on Sunday. As usual the event will be filmed for broadcast on Motors TV and there will be hot food and drinks available on site. Spectators are requested to approach the venue via 170:031944.

Entries are available for the BCCC and BCCC Trophy championships, entries are also welcome from anyone who wants to enter the Clubman event which costs £250 for the full weekend or £150 for one day. Please call Championship Secretary Lilian Turley on 01594 810161 or email if you wish to enter the event.
