Many rally fans will have to wait un­til late No­vem­ber for the high­light event of the sea­son, the 2019 Roger Al­bert Clark Rally. Five days across Eng­land, Wales and Scot­land for the biggest ever en­try and 300 stage miles make this an ab­so­lute must-do rally for any­one who likes for­est ac­tion.

I can safely pre­dict that it will be the high­light of my year as the en­try list al­ready con­tains over 160 crews. Sure, there will be a fair dropout rate over the next 11 months, but a start list of around 130 crews seems en­tirely prob­a­ble. There is qual­ity to match the quan­tity.

It all kicks off at Brightwells in Leomin­ster on the Thurs­day (No­vem­ber 21) and the elated fin­ish­ers will cross the line near Carlisle on Mon­day af­ter­noon. In be­tween will be epic stages, fan­tas­tic ac­tion and an un­ri­valled at­mos­phere for com­peti­tors, ser­vice crews, mar­shals and spec­ta­tors. My ho­tels are al­ready booked.
