SRC welcomes new and returning partners ahead of 2018 season

Organisers of the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship (SRC) are pleased to announce KNC Groundworks Ltd as a new partner to the series in 2018. The Aberdeenshire firm will join Reis Motorsport Insurance and Pirelli Motorsport who remain partners of the series once again this season.

KNC Groundworks Ltd is a family run company based in Alford, offering groundwork services for domestic and commercial conversions right across Scotland.

Managing Director Kevin Crawford completed his first ever season rallying in the SRC last year in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo V, meaning the decision to sponsor the championship is also a personal one.

“KNC Groundworks Ltd are delighted to be sponsors of the SRC in 2018,” Crawford said.

“The decision to become a sponsor is both a commercial and personal one. I have been a big rally enthusiast since I was younger and I am thrilled to have finally managed to get behind the wheel myself.

“We look forward to supporting all seven events and are excited to witness all the action over the year. We would like to wish all competitors all the very best for the season ahead.”

Joining KNC Groundworks this season will be long-time supporters Pirelli Motorsport, who have been providing tyres for competitors in Scottish rallying for many decades with 1989 Scottish Rally Champion Andrew Wood representing the brand in the service park on SRC rounds.

The tyre giant will also be continuing its prize fund to any Pirelli-shod overall podium crews, with a total of £7000 in tyre vouchers available throughout the season.

Leading specialist insurance firm Reis Motorsport Insurance will support the championship for the second year in a row after joining as a partner last season.

Reis Motorsport Insurance will provide cover for the events in the championship as well as offering a fully customised service for registered Scottish Rally Championship crews. The long-established firm have tailor made policies available which include on-event accident damage cover, road cover, personal accident cover, commercial policies support vehicle cover.

The 2018 ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship is partnered by Pirelli Motorsport, Reis Motorsport Insurance and KNC Groundworks Ltd.

The championship consists of seven forest events across Scotland, taking in over 300 competitive stage miles.
