23 Mar: 2021 English Rally C’Ship

Received this Press Release from our friends ‘abroad’ and though it might be of interest to those with smaller capacity machinery and especially those who live in the south of Scotland. Two of the rounds are in the north and one in Yorkshirethe deep south, two are mid-Wales (ish!) and one just south of Wales. Any takers?


Following hot on the heels of the issue of the regulations for the MRF Tyres BTRDA Rally Series, those for the Motorsport UK 2021 English Rally Championship, in association with Seacon UK, are now available at: www.englishrally.co.uk/competitors

It’s all part of the 2021 BTRDA Rally Series registration and BTRDA membership package and, thus all BTRDA Rally Series contenders are automatically eligible for the English Rally Championship with no extra fees required.

Maintaining the format of previous years, the English Rally Championship is class-based, such that the eventual winner may emerge from any one of the seven classes outlined in the regulations. In this way, it isn’t necessarily the most powerful car that will triumph – a fact amply illustrated by Steve Black who claimed the 2019 title in his 1400cc Suzuki Swift! …

Covid restrictions permitting, a six round calendar is planned …

1, Kielder Forest Rally, 19th June, Hexham / Kielder Forest

2, Nicky Grist Stages, 10th July, Builth Wells / Mid Wales

3, Woodpecker Stages, 4th September, Ludlow / Shropshire

4, Trackrod Forest Rally, 25th September, Filey / North Yorkshire

5, Wyedean Stages Rally, 16th October, Mitcheldean / Forest of Dean

6, Grizedale Stages, 4th December, Ambleside / Lake District

from which competitors will count their five best scores.
