ABOUT

The Freelander Challenge started in 2011 and was the brain child of Selwyn Kendrick and Chris Ratter.
Many of the competitors in the British Cross Country Championship run costly high performance machines, 5 litres and 500 bhp is not unusual. These vehicles are fantastic to watch but not helpful at encouraging newcomers into the sport. The Freelander Challenge is a great entry level class, that has much lower cost whilst competing in the same events as the 500bhp super modified monsters.

The Freelander Challenge has two classes: production and super-production.
Production are “road legal” machines with the only modifications being those required by the MSA to ensure an acceptable level of safety. (Seats, belts, Fire extinguisher and roll cage etc.
Super Production are Freelanders that have been modified a bit more, with improved suspension etc.

The Britpart Freelander Challenge brings a level playing field to our sport. In each of the classes cars will be identical, only the skill of the driver and navigator will make the difference needed to get in the points.

The Freelander Challenge runs with the British Cross Country Championship (BCCC) and competitors will use the same route. To qualify for a Championship position you will need to complete 4 of the 6 rounds of the BCCC.

To compete you will need a Off Road National B or higher competition MSA (Motor Sports Association) licence, and a car. You can have a co-driver (passenger) but it is not required.

The Freelander Challenge can offer you twice the mileage of a stage rally at around half the cost and it’s a lot more fun.
