MODIFIED FORD SERIES JOINS FORCES WITH BRSCC FOR 2021 SEASON AND BEYOND
Following a series of discussions over the last few weeks, the BRSCC is delighted to announce that it has reached an agreement with the Modified Ford Series to bring them under the club’s banner from 2021 onwards. For the 2021 season, the series will be supported by the BRSCC and is set to run a nine-event, 18 round calendar with the possibility of a tenth event at the end of the season which is yet to be confirmed.
The Modified Ford Series has a well-proven history of providing large grids and a great racing format for Ford models of all shapes and sizes, spanning a history of more than 50 years of the Blue Oval, with many Escorts, Capris, Sierras, Fiestas and more taking part on a regular basis.
Series co-ordinator Paul Nevill spoke of the agreement, saying “The British Racing and Sports Car Club seemed to be the natural way to elevate our Series, as it delivers everything we need to develop our race series even further. The Club has a well-established history since the late 1940’s, which is testament to its success and we are thrilled to be part of it. The Modified Ford Series was created to provide ‘the place to race’ for the huge variation of modified Ford cars that have been developed over the past 50 years. Whereas some series and championships impose specification restrictions that may exclude many cars, our strategy is one of inclusion, and I believe we along with the BRSCC share a common goal – to attract the finest racing Fords to enable us to build and sustain our reputation and to provide our competitors with the best value and support possible”.
BRSCC’s Chief Operating Officer Paul McErlean added his satisfaction at the agreement, stating “After opening conversations with Paul in recent weeks, the opportunity to bring the Modified Ford Series onboard with us for next season and to help them grow in stature seemed to be clear. I’ve been very impressed with the level of support and entry numbers that the series has been able to cultivate in such a short space of time and I’m very happy that Paul has agreed to come on board with us for 2021 onwards. I’m confident that going forwards, we can aid the Modified Ford Series to become one of the top single-marque motorsport series in the UK and they will be a welcome addition to our paddock and our portfolio.”
