New Sponsor For 2009 Border Rally Championship
The Committee of the Border Rally Championship is delighted to welcome Henderson Auto Sport & Spares (HASS) as title sponsor of the popular clubman's championship for 2009.
Based in Raphoe in County Donegal, Henderson Auto Sport & Spares specializes in providing spare parts for Mark 1 and Mark 2 Ford Escorts for both road and rally use. As well as offering an extensive range of both new and second-hand performance parts including most popular brands, HASS provides complete fabrication and body-building solutions for road and rally cars from its in-house workshop.
"We are very happy to be able to come on board to sponsor the Border Rally Championship for 2009" says Ken Henderson, owner of HASS. "It is a great opportunity for us to be able to give something back to rally competitors. With the Border Series based around our natural catchment area, and geared firmly towards the clubman competitor, we believe this is the ideal platform to allow us to reach a wider audience".
Chairman of the Border Rally Championship Patsy McIntyre welcomed HASS as sponsors of the series. "We are delighted that a company with its roots firmly in the sport of rallying is sponsoring the Border Championship, which over the years has proven to be hugely popular with competitors. I believe that together we can expand on that success and make the championship even stronger in 2009. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors for the past two years, McAree Engineering, for their support and dedication in promoting the Championship, and wish them every success in the future".
The 2009 HASS Border Rally Championship is a class based championship comprising six events in Mayo, Monaghan, Cavan, Newry, Sligo and Donegal. Open to competitors in each of fifteen classes, the best four scores over the six rounds count towards the final championship positions.
