email191213 (1)West Wales Rally Spares has confirmed renewed title sponsorship for the R.A.C. Rally Championship in 2014 following the runaway success of the championship’s inaugural season in 2013.

The Ceredigion-based company, headed by competitor and enthusiast Gareth Lloyd, is a renowned specialist in the supply of parts for Mk1 and Mk2 Ford Escorts, from clubmans cars through to full to Group 4 specification cars. In addition, WWRS is a stockist for many of the leading brands of rally equipment and accessories and is an official Sparco distributor.

With over 30 Group 4 Escort Mk2s expected to pack out the 2014 entry lists, the partnership remains a perfect fit for both WWRS and championship organisers, the Roger Albert Clark Rally Motor Club. Lloyd will contest most rounds of the championship in his famous ex-Roger Clark/Haynes of Maidstone Escort Mk2, ‘OKK 380P’.

“We are very pleased to continue our title sponsorship of the R.A.C. Rally Championship,” said Lloyd. “I’m planning to contest most of the seven events in 2014 and am really looking forward to getting back to competing on a regular basis. The 2014 championship is shaping up to be even better than this year.”

Championship manager Colin Heppenstall was delighted to confirm the on-going partnership. “West Wales Rally Spares is the perfect sponsor for the R.A.C. Rally Championship,” said Heppenstall. “WWRS is one of those specialist companies that make rallying happen and we are very, very pleased that Gareth and his team will continue to be central to the championship.”

WWRS operates from a purpose-built 8000sq ft base in Llandysul, with a dedicated showroom. With experienced competitors on the staff, WWRS is the perfect point of information for hundreds of active competitors across the UK and Europe.
