R.A.C. route change boosts in­ter­est

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The or­gan­is­ers of the Roger Al­bert Clark Rally have been over­whelmed by the ini­tial com­peti­tor re­sponse to the event, which runs on Novem­ber 10-13.

The out­line route was re­vealed in MN last week and rally man­ager Colin Hep­pen­stall says the re­sponse has far ex­ceeded his ex­pec­ta­tions. The route will take in around 280 stage miles in four full days across Eng­land, Scotland and Wales, mak­ing it the long­est rally in the UK this year.

“We’ve al­ready had over 100 ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est,” said Hep­pen­stall. “While his­torics are a key part of the rally, I’m also keen to re­mind every­one that we will, as usual, run an Open Cat­e­gory for all two-wheel-drive cars.”
