Team Spirit and Surf Control announce 2003 British Rally Championship Challenge.

Surf Control, The Worlds No.1 Web & Email filtering Company and Team Spirit Rally Sport announced today that they will be joining forces to mount a challenge on the BRC F2000 Title. The agreement will run for the whole of the 2003 season. Surf Control's involvement will begin with the first round event at the Pirelli Interntional Rally in Gateshead on the 25th & 26th April 2003.

"This is an important sponsorship announcement for us", said Team Spirit Rally driver Ellya Gold, "As the BRC is the largest and most prestigious Rally Championship in the UK and a stepping stone to WRC, it is reassuring to know that we have the support of Surf Control for the whole season."

"The appropriateness of the sponsorship is more than symbolic," continued Kevin Plunkett, team co-driver. "With an increasing awareness of Rallying as an exciting spectator sport and the increasing use of the Internet and email as a major source of rally information, there are significant benefits of having a major web company supporting the team with its superb technical facilities."

Team Spirit have just completed the winters development and testing on their Peugeot 206 GT, increasing both engine performance and braking though a significant development plan. Ellya Gold commented "The work we have done has given us real confidence that we can take the F2000 title, the car is really well balanced and its performance is significantly better than last season."

Martino Corbelli of Surf Control said, "We are very proud to be associated with Team Spirit Rally Sport this year, not only will it help raise awareness of Surf Control's name and product line but also give both Ellya and Kevin a significant chance of winning this years F200 Title"
