Southern Car Club AutoSOLOs

Kempton Park AutoSOLO Regs Published & Entries Open

Southern Car Club are very excited to announce the Regulations have been published for the AutoSOLO being organised by Southern Car Club as part of the ACSMC AutoSOLO Championship 2017 on Sunday 28th May.

The event will be held at Kempton Park horse race course in Surrey. Interest in the events is such that we have already applied to and been accepted as rounds of the ACSMC AutoSOLO Championship. One of the main requirements of AutoSOLOs is that participants do a stint as marshals in between their competitive runs so remember to wrap up warm or break out the sun cream.

Entries are now being accepted. The same entry form can be used for both/either/or events by checking the appropriate boxes on the form. We prefer online entry, however a printable form is also available.

Entry costs are £45 per event or £33.75 for Southern Car Club members under 25 years old thanks to the Brian Hugh fund. More details about club members eligible for entry are in the regulations but if you are not currently a member of a motor club you will be able to join Southern Car Club on the day at signing on. A late entry fee of £5 will apply for entries after Monday 15th May 2017.

Entry fees are accepted online with PayPal (PayPal account not required), with a cheque or bank by transfer.

 

For any enquiries you can contact the Entries Secretary Michael Russell (itofficer@southerncarclub.com).

The event web page is here with links to all the documents.

Request on behalf of Somerset Stages Rally (8 April)

 

Dear Marshal,

We write to you on behalf of the organisers of this year’s Somerset Stages Rally (8 April), who have the following message:

This will be the 39th Somerset Stages Rally on Saturday 8th April and is the only multi venue Rally in the South of England. Based in the seaside town of Minehead and using the forests of the Brendon Hills within the Exmoor National Park, along with the famous Porlock Toll road.

The Rally was awarded the Bill Turner Trophy for Best BTRDA event in 2015, for the second time in three years and the ASWMC Best Loose Surface Stages Rally for 2016.

We’re always happy to see returning faces, as well as new marshals looking to get the best experience of the rally. If you’ve never marshalled before, then let us know and we’ll be able to support you with MSA registration and accreditation. If needed we can partner you up with others to give you a great day marshalling.

We cannot run our Rally without your help and support.

You can contact our Chief Marshal Phillipa on 01643 333743 before 9pm please, or email, marshals@somersetstagesrally.com.

If you’re a radio marshal, you can contact Steve, our Radio Coordinator, on 01643 333943 or radios@somersetstagerally.com

Marshals Invitation from Rally North Wales

North Wales Rally Services Rally North Wales – Saturday 2nd April

It’s time to start planning events for 2016 and therefore I am looking to you for help on this year’s Rally North Wales. Saturday 2nd April is the date to add to your diaries.

Many of you will have been with us last year and what an event it was. With such a compact event I think you all had plenty to do. I do apologise for the weather but not everything is within our control. A request has been made for a little less water to descend but we can make no guarantees.

The route will be similar to last year but with the addition of MSA British Historic Rally Championship contenders there should be more action out on the stages.

I am sure you are all aware of the additional requirements that Rally Future has brought about, putting additional pressure on organisers to man stages to a suitable standard. This means we need as many people to come along and assist that we can. Whatever your skill level we can find a suitable roll for you. It can be arranged for any new marshal to be put with a suitably trained person for the day.

Can I recommend that everyone undertakes the MSA on line accreditation which ensures everyone has the basic skills needed? This can be done by going to https://www.msauk.org/ going to the marshals tab and logging in.

Should you want to improve your marshalling skills The British Rally Marshals Club will be running several marshals briefing days over the coming months? These can be found at: http://www.brmc.org.uk/index.php/training

To offer your services on the event drop me a note to johnjones10@btconnect.com or give me a call on 07766 723066
