Dear Competitor,

South Hams Motor Club would have lost a minimum of £2,000 before a wheel had been turned if we went ahead with this year's Kynaston Auto Services Stages.

Unfortunately the numbers just do not add up. It's therefore with deep regret that I and the club have decided to CANCEL this year's event. (Regulations Article 7.14 )

I can only apologise for this, it is a great disappointment and I would thank YOU for your support and putting in an entry. Your entry fee will be refunded in full / cheque returned.

For me it's the culmination of 6 months volunteer work, time and expense - Trust me it was not an easy decision to make.

We hope to announce a new date in the near future when we will hold a test day at the venue - As the cows still need feeding and we don't want to let Lloyd Stevens and the other landlords down as for them the rally does provide a source of income. I hope you understand my decision and hope to see you at some point on the stages during the year.


Andy Ballantyne, Clerk of the Course.

PS. Looking ahead to May the club is organising the TSH Stages – regs are not ready yet but you can reserve an entry for £50, details here

We are delighted to welcome on-board Paul Kynaston as title sponsor for the Kynaston Auto Services Stages Rally 2013. You may remember Paul partnered mainly by Gary Bulley recently driving a Sunbeam Tiger to victory on numerous rallies both at home and abroad. Even though he hasn't competed on a regular basis he is still a keen enthusiast and supporter of rallying and other motorsport here in the Westcountry.

We thank Paul for his support and maybe could even tempt him out in a new car?

You should find all the information you need about the rally on these pages. You can enter and pay online with your debit / credit card (or send a cheque!).

In the meantime below are some clips from the previous events...

Welcome to the forth running of the ‘Kynaston Auto Services Rally’. Our thanks once again go to Paul Kynaston for sponsoring the event and we hope this year we can have a clear run in the weeks preceding the event without any complications brought on by snow.

Steve and Yvonne Furzeland - Subaru S12The inaugural event was won by Karl Broad & Roger Grant in the MG 6R4, in 2011 the rally was won by brothers Martyn and Ian England in a Mitsubishi EVO and in 2012 it was husband and wife team Steve and Yvonne Furzeland (left) who took the laurels. The reason we have to run the event on the Saturday is due to various local authority restrictions and rules that now apply to the venue; we now need YOUR entry.

We are delighted to be a round of the ASWMC championship and aim to offer an event that’s friendly, run smoothly but above all challenges competitors whether it’s your first or 100th rally.

This rally will be the perfect way to start your championship campaign. Please bring along your family and friends who will be able to watch the thrills and hopefully not so many spills – but warn them that the venue is an exposed ex-airfield high on a Devon hillside; warm clothes, hat, gloves and that new scarf given by relatives as a Christmas present is a must!!Good luck, all the best and see you in February....
