    Brc 2019

    The first round is only a few weeks away and already the silence is deafening.

    Not an auspicious start to the year with Mr Taylor departing either so hoping the only way is up from here...

    Yeah, I saw he'd left on the BRForum. Hopefully David Richards has some grand plan that required this...

    I don't think we've even had any 'big reveals' from Motorsport News this year?

    They'll be waiting for the Autosport Show before making the announcements. Don't forget that MN is in the same group as Autosport, the Show & umpteen web and TV providers now so they're probably under strict instructions about what they can & can't say.

    One positive numbers wise (although I suspect it will only really benefit the Irish rounds) is that R5 cars that have been converted to RHD will be allowed to score points.

    In 2019 the only Scottish BRC round is the Galloway Hills Rally, which was formerly just a round of the Scottish Rally Championship. There are no Scottish rallies in the secondary national championship (the BTRDA Rally Series) anymore or the Asphalt Rally Championship.

    Scotland has a really pretty respectable all gravel national championship of its own though with some nice (if short, mainly around 70km) rallies, very nice stages/scenery and decent local entrants. The calendar for that is here: https://www.ewrc-results.com/season/2019/145-scotland/

    Just to correct you - BTRDA & Scottish Championship are on the same level with regards to length of events, standard of cars competing and level of competitors

    Another correcton. The BTRDA Championship is a club championship, not a National Championship. Don't be confused by the fact that the name of the club starts with the word "British". Scotland also has its own asphalt championship, The Scottish Tarmack Rally Championship.

    Good point, though I didn't mean to imply that the BTRDA was any different, I just didn't think elaborating about the BTRDA was relevant to nafpaktos question.

    The use of lower case was intentional. For the sake of brevity, when the question wasn't about the BTRDA specifically, I was describing the current prominent secondary Championship that has held rounds across Britain, including Scotland previously.
