New Championship Sponsor for 2017 - Electrovape
We would like to welcome Sutton Coldfield based company Electrovape as our championship sponsor for 2017. We are delighted that they have chosen the Ford XR Challenge to further promote their already successful business.
Without the help of all our sponsors and technical partners this series wouldn't be where it is today. Thank you all.
Past Champions Racing in 2017
This season we will be serving our fans a feast of XR racing, not seen for a long time. We have based our meetings at Anglesey Circuit, and Oulton Park our home circuit. Once again, we are racing with the BRSCC Organisation, as one of their the most successful One make championships in the Northwest.
Last season we served up some great exciting closely fort racing and averaged eighteen cars per Grid. We are looking for even better this season. We can now announce we have, nine past Champions registered to race. Wow some talent there!

Ray Grimes One of the True Characters and Good Guys
Ray has had lots of experience with some of the top teams. He drives the Ferrari super car up the hill at Goodwood. Ray raced in our Challenge many years ago, many of you know Ray and some have had the benefit of his coaching.
I spent yesterday afternoon talking motorsport when he called in. I thought you may be interested to know . Two of his pupils won their Championships this season. That makes it Eleven Champions he has helped.
Also in July Ray won the 25Hour Fun cup at Spa.. Well done Ray hope you can attend our XR Challenge evening meeting.
