Welcome to the the Primrose Rally, a Navigational Rally running on 9th / 10th February 2019.

 

LATEST NEWS: Regs out and Entries open in November 2018

 

South Hams Motor Club have been running night road events since 1972 and we are constantly looking for the “ideal” format, listening to competitors and the changing conditions in the sport and area. We feel accuracy in all sides of the car will be required for a good result on our events.


In recent years we have got more of an eye to the future of the sport, trying to encourage more newcomers to step up from 12 car to National B events, and thus the events are being designed to be much kinder to cars, but not necessarily on the crews.


The ethos is becoming: “Do the event Saturday night, wash it Sunday and drive it to work Monday”.


We know our event supporters, Owen Vehicle Services and Country Maid, wish to see this format survive and I thank them for what is now three years of continued support, in multiple of ways.


We look forward to receiving your entry, and any questions you have please ask away, our details are in the SRs.

Regards

Richard and the Organising Team
