    Random question that isn't really BRC, so apologies.

    I've seen Mr S. Petch and his Ford(s) around local stages for several years.

    Is there one of them or two of them? I noticed at Trackrod last year that there were two entries with different versions of Fiesta (S2000 and R5+) for Steve Petch and Stephen Petch.

    Apparently, that's nothing new.

    So I'm guessing now that they're father and son, or similar?

    I'd never realised this before and now feel a bit daft...

    Good news if true. Initial idea was he'd just do the two tarmac rounds - https://www.msabrc.com/news/furuseth-joins-adam-family/

    And now Tom Cave commits in a Fiesta. Big news! - https://www.msabrc.com/news/cave-set-return-brc-bang/

    In the space of two weeks or so the championship has really turned around. Fantastic year in store.

    Yeah, really looking like a decent year in competition terms. If they get a good few additions on a round by round basis, there might be some really strong events.

    Looking forward to seeing the Border entry list.

    You might have already seen but there is a rolling one here: https://www.rallies.info/webentry/20...e=u&combined=1

    Callum Devine is another quick young guy. A bit of depth now in the Junior field too, especially with at least another works Vauxhall guy to be announced.

    Seems he got the backing afterall, Cave. Let's hope it's for a full BRC assault, if he wants the title he will have to do all the rallies anyways with this competition..

    Juniors seems to be good too, but only 5 results are counting so don't know if we can expect them all in Ypres.

    It's great to see again BRC on the top of its form. Italian series and French champ also look promising. These are Europe's greatest rally countries and itís a shame they arenít all represented in ERC. Hope that will be fixed soon.

    On closer inspection - some very selective wording in the Cave press releases. Only seems that he's confirmed for Border Counties (R1) at the moment?

    Steve Petch is the father and the man behind SG Petch who have a number of car franchises in the North. Steve has been around the National rally scene for donkeys years in machinery including a Group N Impreza and an Escort WRC amongst many others. Hes currently driving a 2 litre turbo engined Fiesta. Stephen is the son and has a full WRC Fiesta now having driven an R5+ for the last couple of seasons.
