New date & venue for British Rally Championship Awards Ceremony, The BRC Bash

The MSA British Rally Championship awards ceremony, The BRC Bash, will take place at a new location and on a new date in 2009.

The Championship having previously run until December, coinciding the date of the awards with the Autosport International Show worked well, but with a season that ends on the 26th September, a three month delay seemed unreasonable.

The new date has therefore been set on Saturday 31st October and with the need to be near the NEC removed, the venue will be the recently refurbished Park Royal Hotel near Warrington.

But don't worry; the successful format remains unchanged, with a black tie dinner interspersed with awards and the fantastic Greenlight TV footage from the season. Wine and coffee are included in the ticket price with an after dinner disco until midnight and late bar until 1am, after which residents can take advantage of the hotel bar until breakfast.

The new venue's excellent health and leisure facilities and continuation of the Saturday night format, means early arrival is essential. Take a while to unwind in the sauna or pool before reception drinks at 6.30pm, celebration of the BRC's 51st year starting at 7.15pm prompt. Early arrivals will also have an opportunity for a bit of friendly competition too, details of the event announced nearer the time.

The overall MSA British Rally Championship awards will act as the finale to the evening, but the ceremony will play host to the Swift Sport Cup, Citroen Racing Trophy and Fiesta SportTrophy awards, as well as the BRC's support series, the BRC Challenge.

Tickets are now available at GBR65 and the Park Royal Hotel has a block of rooms available from GBR82 bed & breakfast. Just quote BRC Bash when booking.
