OnThePaceNote will offer junior competitors in the 2021 Protyre Motorsport UK Asphalt Rally Championship an array of incentives and awards – the top one being a free test in a Hyundai i20 R5 rally car going to the best placed junior driver at the end of the season.
The exciting new partnership is designed to develop the skills of junior rally drivers and co-drivers on asphalt, and everyone who is eligible for the OnThePaceNote Junior Prize will have access to any of its specialist training days run by CPM Training. These may include new asphalt training days at the Trawsfynydd ranges in north Wales.
The top placed junior driver at the end of the season will win a free test on asphalt in a Hyundai i20 R5 rally car, prepared and run by PCRS Rallysport.
The top placed junior co-driver at the end of the season will win a £50 cash voucher from Nicky Grist Motorsports.
To be eligible, competitors must not have previously won the junior championship, be under 25-years of age on 1 January 2021 and use OnThePaceNote route notes, supplied directly by them. Only individual rallies that permit the use of OnThePaceNote route notes will count towards the overall Protyre Motorsport UK Asphalt Rally Championship junior awards.
