Our road Rallies are run on public roads, so anyone, with any car can join. these events are timed at an average of 30mph or less. Road Rallies run overnight on Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings, when the roads are quiet.
The length of the rally route varies but is on average around 100 to 150 miles and the route of the rally is not known by the crews prior to the start of the event. The navigator is issued a set of “instructions” from which they are able to plot the route on the map, then get the driver to follow.
Each “section” of the rally is timed and penalties are given for arriving late and greater penalties are given for arriving early. The key to the event is the skills of the Navigator.
Endurance Rallying is designed to bridge the gap between two disciplines - and ultimately get more people actively involved in competitive motorsport.
You don’t need big amounts of money to be successful in endurance rallying and it’s one of the most competitive forms of rallying in Britain at the moment.
To compete in a “Enduro” you need a petrol engine car no bigger than 1400cc or a diesel up to 1950cc. No turbos or tuning are allowed. Gearboxes, transmissions and brakes all have to be standard components. Seats can however be changed and suspension uprated. You also need to strengthen the bodyshell, fit a sumpshield and fit minimal safety equipment.
Endurance Rallying is the ultimate clubman’s rallying formula as it means the majority of competitors are on the same performance level, instead of a minority who do all the winning. It is drastically more cost effective.
