Cronin takes third title as Cave and Pryce tie for Yorkshire win
Posted: November 11, 2016 3:58 AM
A dramatic end to a landmark season culminated in Keith Cronin becoming MSA British Rally Champion for the third time this weekend, at the end of the sixth and final round, the International Rally Yorkshire. By finishing in third place, he and Marshall Clarke had achieved their goal of claiming the 2012 Drivers' and Co-drivers' titles.
Ahead of them on the event, a rally-long battle between the two Welsh crews of Tom Cave/Craig Parry and Osian Pryce/Iestyn Williams could not have been closer, when the final results revealed that after 66.31 competitive miles and six stages in the forests over the North Yorkshire Moors, their times were exactly the same.
Organisers therefore invoked the tie-break rule of 'fastest on the first stage', which meant that Cave/Parry were declared the winners by one-tenth of a second.
It was the closest ever finish in the 54-year history of the British Rally Championship and one that epitomised the closeness of the competition throughout the season, which has been a hallmark of the two-wheel-drive only format that was introduced this year.
This weekend's International Rally Yorkshire featured a four-way battle for the Championship. Cronin/Clarke were favourites, starting four points ahead of Cave/Parry - who were yet to drop a round - and, with 50% more points available for season finale, the Irishmen had to finish eighth or higher to claim the title.
Pryce/Williams and Northern Ireland's Jonny Greer/Gordon Noble were also mathematically capable of claiming the title, but would have to rely on others having problems if they were to secure the ultimate accolade.
The event began on Friday evening with a ceremonial start on Scarborough's West Pier, before crews made their way to the first stage: a 15.5-mile run through Dalby Forest in the dark. And, with conditions extremely slippery due to the heavy rain earlier in the week, all of the BRC crews had a story to tell when they entered the service halt before the overnight halt.
Emerging from SS1 with a slender 0.1-second lead were Cave/Parry, who reported a temporary visit to a ditch four-miles into the stage. Just behind were Pryce/Williams, who also spoke of a few heart-stopping moments as their car's brake pedal intermittently went to the floor.
Cronin/Clark also had a torrid time in SS1. After traversing the water-splash near the start of the stage, their Citroen's windscreen misted up and, from then on, Cronin admitted he lost his rhythm and consequently ended the day in third, 14-seconds behind the leaders.
Greer/Noble's title hopes took a turn for the worse when they saw their Citroen's left-front wheel go past the car, after all four wheel-studs sheared when accelerating out of a slow corner one-mile before the end of the stage. Thankfully, with no damage done, they were able to continue on Saturday running under SuperRally rules.
Even before the first stage ? in fact at the ceremonial start ? the Citroen crew of Callum Black/Paul Wakely had problems, when their car wouldn't start and they had to be pushed across the line. Fortunately, they managed to fix what transpired to be an electrical problem and were able to continue. However, their weekend was still better than that of James Grint/Craig Drew, who had to withdraw their entry after getting stuck in deep floods when setting up their spot lamps in a narrow Yorkshire lane on Thursday evening.
In contrast, Matthew Cathcart/James Morgan had a clean run through SS1 to hold an impressive fourth place and the lead of the R2 (Class 6) category in their Fiesta. Second of the R2s at this point was the Finnish paring of Jukka Korhonen/Marko Salminen, who considered themselves lucky to not have lost more time when they were caught out in the slippery conditions. Campaigning the Pirelli Star Driver Skoda Fabia for the final time this season, they slid off the road and spent the next 20-seconds getting it pointed in the right direction.
Saturday's itinerary included five stages, with the morning comprising two six-mile runs through Gale Rigg, followed by 9.3-miles through Cropton. Cave/Parry improved their position by three seconds on SS2, then a further five-seconds on SS3, but then Pryce/Williams went fastest through SS4 and reduced the margin to 5.2-seconds at the lunchtime service halt.
Cronin/Clarke were still third, with the Irish driver admitting he was finding it difficult not to drive faster, but knew very well the job he had to do with just two stages to go. Desi Henry/Barry McNulty were fairing far better than they had done the previous evening and were now up to fourth in their Citroen DS3.
Also making up for lost time were Korhonen/Salminen, who had passed Cathcart/Morgan to take fifth overall and lead Class 6 (R2), with Cathcart now focussed on a finish and scoring maximum points in the FordFiesta SportTrophy.
Black/Wakely were pleased that they had no recurring electrical problems and, with their car running better than ever they were in seventh, followed by the Norwegian crew of Steve R?kland/Kim Hjalmarsen who were eighth in their Ford Fiesta.
With just two stages to go the championship title was now Cronin/Clarke's to lose, but with Pryce/Williams and Cave/Parry locked in battle for the glory of winning the final round and the very attractive prize of Eur10,000 for being the Citroen Junior Champion, it was no holds barred. Driving on the limit, Cave/Parry pushed hard on SS6 ? another 15.5-mile run through Dalby Forest ? but in doing so clipped a bank and bent their car's rear suspension, This meant Pryce/Williams emerged from the stage in the lead by 8.8-seconds ahead of Cave/Parry, with Cronin/Clarke a further 17-seconds behind and still third.
It was therefore all down to the sixth stage of the rally - and the final stage of the year: a 14-mile run through Langdale Forest. Cave/Parry braced themselves for the big push and, following a supreme effort - amazingly - they went through the stage exactly 8.8-seconds faster than Pryce/Williams which mean both crews finished the event on equal times. Although nothing short of remarkable, the same thing happened on a BRC round in 2006, when Mark Higgins and Rory Galligan recorded a dead-heat on the Jim Clark Rally.
To resolve these situations, organisers refer to the tie-break regulation that states that the fastest time on the first stage will be taken into consideration. In this case, the advantage swung to Cave/Parry by just 0.1-second and provided the Welshmen with their second BRC victory of the year. Although left wondering what might have been, Pryce/Williams remained philosophical and admitted that they were still pleased to finish in second place.
But for Cronin/Clarke third was a perfect result, as they had achieved what they had set out to do and were both delighted - and relieved - to have made it to the finish to become 2012 MSA British Rally Champions. They finished the season on 102 points, with Cave/Parry second on 94 and Pryce/Williams third on 87.
Henry/McNulty were another crew pleased to have ended the event on a positive note by crossing the line in fourth place. But Henry was even more pleased when he found out that he had been nominated as the final driver to go through to the Pirelli Star Driver shoot-out, which will award its winner with a prize drive in a Citroen DS3 in next year's BRC.
Korhonen was also happy with the outcome of his weekend, as last year's Pirelli Star Driver winner rounded off his last ever event driving the ?koda Fabia by winning R2 (Class 6) and finishing fifth overall. Black/Wakely ended their rally in sixth, after overhauling Cathcart/Morgan ? who were second of the R2 runners - on the penultimate stage.
The next event in the MSA British Rally Championship calendar is the gala prize-giving evening, which takes place in Manchester on 17th November and where all of its 2012 Champions will be honoured.

Yorkshire provides arena for BRC class battles
Posted: September 26, 2012 10:01 PM
This weekend’s International Rally Yorkshire hosts the sixth and final round of the 2012 MSA British Rally Championship. Based in Scarborough, the event features one stage on Friday five stages on Saturday in the forests over the North Yorkshire Moors and, although some of the BRC titles have already been decided, it’s here that the overall champions together with the winners of all the supporting categories and classes will be revealed.
MSA BRITISH MANUFACTURERS RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP
Citroën UK, Ford Motor Company and Renault UK have all registered as manufacturers for this year’s BRC, which means the fight for the coveted MSA British Manufacturers’ title is a three-way battle between the brands. Scores towards the title are calculated from the highest-placed two cars representing each of these manufacturers.
With BRC organisers attributing 1.5-times the normal amount of points for the final round, it means a best score of 57 is possible in the manufacturers’ category. Ford and Citroën could both still take the title, but with just one Renault out in Yorkshire the goal for this French marque is to overhaul Ford. With a lead of 32-points going into this event, Citroën is the one with the upper hand ahead of Ford, who are 18-points ahead of Renault.
MSA BRITISH JUNIOR RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP
Underlining the BRC’s commitment to reward its rising stars, a new-look Junior Championship was introduced for this season for drivers of 23 and under in Class 10 (R1) cars.
Northern Ireland saw the battle to become 2012 MSA British Junior Rally Champion decided, when Garry Pearson secured the title with one round to go. The 20-year old from Duns will not compete in Yorkshire and has elected to put his resources towards a full BRC campaign in 2013. His absence from the event leaves the door wide open for his main rival this year, Norway’s Steve Røkland – also 20-years old - to take the honours this weekend.
PIRELLI STAR DRIVER
This year’s Pirelli Star Driver competition selects a winner from each round, plus the Junior Champion all of whom go forward to an end-of-season shootout. Here they have the chance to win a Pirelli funded prize designed to boost their progression in the sport. Winner in 2011 was Finnish driver Jukka Korhonen, who will be seen competing for the final time this season in the Pirelli Star Driver Škoda Fabia.
So far the winners this year have been: Mark Donnelly (round one), Tom Cave (round two), Jussi Kumpumäki (round three), Matthew Cathcart (round four), Osian Pryce (round five) and Garry Pearson (British Junior Champion). The seventh and final nominee will be revealed on Saturday evening.
BRC TEAMS CUP
The BRC Teams Cup is aimed at professional motorsport teams running two cars and this year six have registered. Drivers are pre-nominated, but can change from event-to-event. All six rounds count towards the final championship classification and, with 30-points available, the top four are still mathematically capable of lifting the title this weekend.
This year’s teams, in current championship order, are: M-Sport Ford – 96 points, Pirelli TEG Sport – 80 points, Davies Motorsport Services – 73 points, AVS Motorsport – 72 points, Ford Junior Team Finland – 49 points and Millers Oils 586 Team – 31 points.
RAVENOL OILS BRC PRIVATEERS CUP
For competitors who are not included in one of the six official teams, the Ravenol Oils BRC Privateers Cup allows 18 out of the 27 registered drivers to score points towards this recently introduced category.
The top-scoring privateer on round one was Omagh’s Mark Donnelly, with Keith Cronin from Bantry doing likewise for rounds two, three, four and five - and therefore the Eire driver tops the table by 14-points. Jonny Greer from Carryduff moved up to second following his performance on his home event, with his fellow Ulsterman Desi Henry from Portglenone third – all three of them driving Citroën DS3s – and all three of them still able top score enough points in Yorkshire to be able to claim the title.
BRC ONE-MAKES SERIES
The 2012 MSA British Rally Championship features three manufacturer-backed one-make series:
Citroën Racing Trophy UK
With a €10,000 prize fund for the top three finishers on each event, it is hardly surprising that seven of the eight drivers competing in Citroën DS3s are registered for this year’s Citroën Racing Trophy UK. It will also come as no surprise that three-times winner this season Keith Cronin currently leads the series with 78-points ahead of round-two winner Tom Cave from Aberdovey on 69.
After top-scoring on round one and then posting a series of consistent finishes, Osian Pryce from Machynlleth is third on 66 points, whilst Desi Henry and Jonny Greer are joint-fourth on 61. James Grint is sixth with 52, which means that, with 30-points for a win in Yorkshire, it is still possible for six out of the seven drivers to take the title, although – of course – it will be difficult to topple Cronin from his current mantle.
Following a perfect run of results this year by scoring five wins from five rounds, Elfyn Evans from Dynas Mawddwy has assured that he will win this year’s Fiesta SportTrophy with one event to go – which is just as well, as he will not be competing in Yorkshire. Instead, he’ll be contesting another series that features Ford Fiesta R2s, the WRC Academy. And, with the next round in France shortly after the BRC event, he’s opted to focus on the World Rally Championship scholarship series this weekend.
Therefore, the battle in Yorkshire will now be for second place between Matthew Cathcart from Blaney on 69-points, Gethin Jones from Chepstow on 55-points and Ayr’s Ruary MacLeod on 46-points.
Twingo Renaultsport R1 & R2 Trophies UK
Both the Twingo Renaultsport R1 and Twingo Renaultsport R2 Trophies UK have already been decided, with 2012 BRC Junior Champion Garry Pearson securing the R1 series title on the Jim Clark Rally – his local event. Likewise, the R2 series was wrapped up in Ulster by Chris Ingram, who will be back for a final fling in Yorkshire, whilst Pearson, on the other hand, is keeping his powder dry in readiness for 2013.

Tom Cave heads for Yorkshire and BRC finale
Posted: September 25, 2012 11:48 AM
Hot off the back of a stunning performance on Wales Rally GB, where he finished 14th overall and second in SWRC in the second official PROTON Motorsports Satria Neo S2000, Welsh rally driver Tom Cave heads to Yorkshire next weekend, for the finale of the MSA British Rally Championship. Tom, and co-driver Craig Parry, are currently lying third in the championship and while there are six drivers who can mathematically win the series, two are not competing in Yorkshire, so it will be a four-way fight for the 2012 title.
The favourites are likely to be Tom and former double BRC champion, Keith Cronin. Tom is just four points behind Cronin and with 50% extra points available in Yorkshire and dropped scores coming into play, the possible permutations are huge.
However, from Tom's point of view, he knows that to stand any chance of clinching the 2012 BRC title, he has to put in the performance of his career. He is already riding a wave of confidence, following his Wales Rally GB success, coupled with a win in Thailand with Proton and outright wins on the Coracle Stages and the Mid-Wales rallies earlier this year, in addition to a win in the BRC.
And while it looks like a difficult task to best Cronin, who would appear to only need to finish eighth in Yorkshire to wrap up the title, Tom knows that nothing is decided until the end of the event.
Commenting ahead of the rally, Tom said;
"I think Rally Yorkshire will be one of the hardest events of my career. There is so much at stake that getting the right balance on the event will be crucial.
"The obvious strategy might be to push at maximum attack from the off but this could quite easily backfire, as if I fail to finish and the others do well, I could go from second to fourth in the championship.
"However, if I settle in and go for a reasonable result, particularly ahead of Osian [Pryce] and Jonnie [Greer], then that could help cement second in the championship, which wouldn't be a bad result for my first season contesting the full BRC.
"That could also mean second in the Citroen Racing Trophy. However, if I come home as the first driver under 23, I win a significant credit for parts against an entry in the Rallye du Var in France in 2013.
"Of course, aiming for a solid second place could also be rewarding if Keith has a problem, such as another mechanical issue like he had on the Sunseeker. I think the only thing that is certain is that we won't know who's champion until the stop line of the last stage on Saturday."
The event begins with a ceremonial start on the seafront in Scarborough in the evening of Friday 28 September, followed by a single special stage that evening. There then follow a further five stages on Saturday 29 September, run in the infamous Dalby Forest, before the first crews are expected at the finish, again on the seafront that evening.
BRC’s landmark season set for Yorkshire finale
Posted: September 25, 2012 11:10 AM
The scene is set for a spectacular showdown at next weekend’s International Rally Yorkshire, when 2009 and 2010 Champion Keith Cronin challenges to claim his third MSA British Rally Championship title. If he does so, he will become only the fourth driver to win three times and follow in the footsteps of Jimmy McRae, who won it five times, Roger Clark four times and Mark Higgins three times.
In a year that has seen the championship go through a series of changes, including the introduction of its innovative two-wheel-drive only formula, the sixth and final round of 2012 signifies the end of a landmark season for the MSA British Rally Championship. It is one that has generated some of the closest competition and most committed driving for many years and, most importantly, allowed talent to shine through.
One such rising star is Welshman Elfyn Evans, who has had so much success this season he won’t be appearing in Yorkshire. As well as jointly leading the BRC drivers’ standings alongside Cronin, he also leads the WRC Academy and therefore, with the French round taking place shortly after the Yorkshire event, the Ford Fiesta R2 driver will focus on making his mark on the world stage, rather than challenge for his domestic title.
Evans’ absence hands the baton of opportunity to fellow Welsh competitor and winner of round two Tom Cave who, with just four points between them, is Cronin’s closest rival. So, with drivers able to drop the worst of their seasons’ six scores and the Irishman recording a DNF on round one – plus BRC organisers allocating 50% more points for the final round - it means the three-times winner this year will need to finish in the top eight or higher if he is to be assured his third BRC title.
But, as is always the case in rallying, it’s not over until it’s over and the two drivers currently in third and fourth places, Osian Pryce from Wales and Jonny Greer from Northern Ireland, are - with 30-points up for grabs - mathematically still in with a chance of lifting the BRC crown. However, it will need Cronin or Cave to falter if Pryce and Greer are to yield the advantage. Either way, one thing is certain: the winner will be driving a Citröen DS3 R3, as all four heir apparents are armed with similar machinery.
Had he entered the final round, Mark Donnelly – also from Northern Ireland – is another who would have been in with a chance of the title, albeit a slim one, as the Renault Clio R3 driver currently lies sixth in the standings. He is just ahead of his fellow countryman Matthew Cathcart in seventh, who will be looking to secure second place in R2 (Class 6), after Evans wrapped up the category last time around in Ulster.
Cathcart’s main challenge for R2 honours in Yorkshire will come from Jukko Korhonen, who will be making his final outing as the Pirelli Star Driver in his Skoda Fabia. Sharing ninth place with the Finn in the points table is Desi Henry, who would admit he’s not had the best of seasons so far. Therefore, the Irish Citroën DS3 R3 driver will be aiming to finish on a high note and perhaps, even on the podium too.
Another two Citröen drivers with a similar outlook - having had their fair share of ups and downs this year - will be Englishmen Callum Black and James Grint, whereas Gethin Jones’ mission is to finish following an uncharacteristic off and consequent retirement – his first of the year - in Ulster. If he does make it home on Saturday night, the Fiesta ST driver from Chepstow will secure the spoils for Class 8.
Running behind Jones in Yorkshire - and upholding R1 category honours - is Norway’s Steve Røkland driving a Fiesta. Whilst rounding off the BRC entry, there are three R2 category contenders who’s stage times have shown they could well end the event on the Class 6 podium: Alex Parpottas from Hoddeston driving a Fiesta, Chris Ingram from Manchester driving a Renault Twingo and Arron Newby from Carnforth driving a Skoda Fabia.
After two asphalt events in succession, the International Rally Yorkshire sees a return to gravel and provides the fifth loose surface rally of the season. Starting from Scarborough sea front, the BRC drivers, co-drivers and their cars will assemble on West Pier for an autograph session at 5.00pm before crossing the start line at 6.00pm on Friday evening.
Crews will then tackle a stage through Dalby Forest in darkness before returning to Scarborough for the overnight halt. A further five stages take place on Saturday in the forests across the North Yorkshire Moors, before the first car finishes on West Pier at 4.55pm – and where the 2012 British Rally Champions will spray the champagne!

Cronin on track as the Citroën Racing trophy UK heads for the Trackrod!
Posted: September 25, 2012 10:09 AM
With three overall rally victories this year, two time British Rally Champion Keith Cronin heads into the final International Rally Yorkshire with the Citroën Racing Trophy UK lead.
Cronin is on 78 points ahead of Welsh drivers Tom Cave on 69 points and Osian Pryce on 66. Northern Ireland drivers Desi Henry and Johnny Greer are joint fourth with 61 points apiece, with James Grint fifth on 52 and Jarkko Nikara sixth on 34. With a staggering 64,500€ prize fund on offer this season including a Junior prize worth 10,000€ for the first driver under 23 still up for grabs, it's an important finale on the Trackrod Rally for the DS3 R3 mounted crews.
For Keith Cronin the prospect of a third British Rally Championship title means that he will have to drive an intelligent rally this weekend. The Cork driver's performances have netted him 21,500€ in prize money to date from the Citroën Racing Trophy.
"I think we need at least 5th or higher this weekend, to secure the BRC title. It's been a good season so far for us and the DS3, for a front wheel drive car, is a very quick machine. The Citroën Racing Trophy prize money has really helped to lighten the load as we don't have a lot of finance, and with the support and media back up it's been a great series to compete in. It'll be a tough weekend, as we cannot afford to let our concentration slip especially as the Citroën Racing Trophy UK title is not assured yet."
This weekend's International Rally Yorkshire, sees seven DS3 R3 models line up for the British Rally Championship finale.The Junior prize is a 10,000€ contribution to compete in the Rally Du Var in France, in November, and there is a big fight on for this prize. Tom Cave still has an outside chance of the overall BRC title also.
"I think Rally Yorkshire will be one of the hardest events of my career. There is so much at stake that getting the right balance on the event will be crucial. The obvious strategy might be to push at maximum attack from the off but this could quite easily backfire, as if I fail to finish and the others do well, I could go from second to fourth in the championship, but if I settle in and go for a reasonable result, particularly ahead of Osian Pryce and Jonny Greer, then that could help cement second in the championship, which wouldn't be a bad result for my first season contesting the full BRC. If I come home as the first driver under 23, I win a significant credit for parts against an entry in the Rallye du Var in France."
Osian Pryce will be another one to beat this weekend, the young Welsh driver finished a fine third on the Ulster International Rally.
"We really have to go for it this weekend, and try to finish in front of Keith and Tom if we can. I will have to give it 120%, as the Trophy win itself is still attainable, and of course there is the superb Junior prize. We have done a little bit of testing, a few miles in the dark, and about 30 miles at a charity rally day, so hopefully we will be on good form for the weekend."
Desi Henry tested his DS3 successfully on last weekend's Bushwhacker Rally in Northern Ireland, as he gets the feel of the forests again, whilst Jonny Greer is very much looking forward to the Trackrod.
"We have a shakedown planned for Thursday to get the feel of the DS3 on gravel again. The Pirelli Rally was our last outing on that surface with the car. There are some very fast corners on this event, so it's important to get the car set up well for the high speed stuff. Another thing to watch out for is the weather. If the heavy rain persists all week, it will make the stages very slippery. For us there's no real pressure, just go out and have a good go, as anything can happen on this rally." James Grint in his AVS Motorsport DS3 will be another one to watch out for, as James has impressed this season with his transition to the 210 horse power DS3.
Citroën UK holds a commanding lead in the BRC manufacturer's series going into this final round, with Keith Cronin favourite to take the overall British Rally Championship and the Citroën Racing Trophy UK series. It's been a memorable season to date for the DS3 crews. The event begins with a ceremonial start on the seafront in Scarborough on Friday with one stage, then five long stages on Saturday using the Dalby forest complex, famous for its long straights and square corners.
