For drivers under 26 years of age in R2 homologated cars
Open to any driver under the age of 26, the Junior BRC will be a competitive proving ground for crews as they have the chance to tackle some of the best forest stages and Tarmac tests in the British Isles in FIA-homologated R2 cars. The number of tyres used per round will be restricted to keep costs to a minimum and to create a level playing field for all competitors in the class.
The class will take in all six BRC events, however, drivers will only carry their best five scores from the seven point scoring opportunities towards the championship. Every crew will have to play a Joker to play on one of the rounds for which they can score extra points, up to a maximum of 5 points on top of their usual score.
The competition has proved to be intense within this class. In 2017 Oscar Solberg stated that it offered him the best place to learn everything you need in rallying. Every surface that is in the WRC is in the BRC in some form or another. The rough gravel, smooth gravel, wet bumpy tarmac, fast dry smooth tarmac.
