New partnership forged with racewear and accessories supplier Rallynuts Motorsport & Severn Valley Stages.
Popular Welsh stage rally, The Severn Valley Stages has announced a new sponsorship agreement with established racewear and accessory firm, Rallynuts Motorsport. The 4th June event will be known as the Rallynuts Motorsport Severn Valley Stages Rally and the new collaboration will bring a fresh new-look to the all-gravel event.
2016 will see the 43rd running of the Midland Manor Motor Club organised event and has been widely recognised as a key event in the British rallying calendar over the years. Having been known for 13 years as the Kerridge Stages Rally followed by the Mutiny Stages Rally, the new association with Rallynuts Motorsport offers an opportunity for the event to expand with the promise of a new route and stages.
Based at the Builth Wells Showground, the rally will once again be a round of the Mintex MSA British Historic Rally Championship, Pirelli MSA Welsh Rally Championship; the new HRCR Stage Masters Challenge and the FMP Rally Challenge. It will offer over 40 miles of action through some of the most challenging stages in Wales, made famous by the final round of the World Rally Championship finale, Wales Rally GB in recent years.
Event organisers are delighted at the new partnership with Rallynuts Motorsport and believe it will help them to offer an even better rally than the success of 2015. “It really is an honour to have Rallynuts Motorsport on board with us this year and we hope this is just the start of a long and prosperous relationship” said joint Clerk of the Course Keith Ashley. “The rally has a fantastic heritage and we had some very positive feedback after last year so we are hoping to build on that for 2016 and having Rallynuts on board will certainly help with that”.
Paul Bonas and Craig Cameron, Managing Directors of Rallynuts Motorsport Ltd are equally enthusiastic with the news. “We are delighted to be part of the 2016 Severn Valley Stages Rally and look forward to seeing everyone there” they said. “This event is already set to be a huge success and one to remember, so come along and be sure to be a part of it too.”
“Work is well underway behind the scenes to further develop many aspects of this exciting rally” they added. “We are thrilled to be providing support to the organisers, who are all volunteers, whom we acknowledge devote a vast amount of man hours to organise and ensure that competitors and spectators enjoy a safe and enjoyable day’s motorsport. We are grateful to have this opportunity to give back to the sport, as competitors ourselves, and are proud in the knowledge that we will be part of making this a thoroughly enjoyable event for all.”
