19 Nov: R.A.C. Rally – Entry List

 … Roger Albert Clark Rally, 25-29 Nov 2021 …

Five days, 39 Special Stages, 350 stage miles and 150 cars and crews – it must be the 2021 Roger Albert Clark Rally. The entry list and timetable have now been published for this year’s event and there’s no real surprise in the automotive line-up. Of the 150 or so cars entered, there are 96 Ford Escorts – plus 2 Cortinas, 1 Anglia and 1 Fiesta!

Of course other marques and models are represented including 3 Hillman Angers, 3 Sunbeams, 2 Chevettes, 2 Asconas, 2 Novas, 1 Corsa, 1 Astra and 1 Kadett There are also 3 Peugeot 205s and one 504 (!), 5 Saabs, 2 Porsches and 2 Toyotas, plus a Datsun 240Z and 1600 SSS, 2 BMWs, a VW Golf, Alfa Romeo, Fiat 131, Lancia Fulvia, Subaru Legacy RS, Triumph TR7 and a Rover 200 BRM, and a personal favourite, one Volvo PV544, but the blue oval reigns supreme.

There’s quite a few of our lot heading south for this great adventure, mostly all-Scottish crews, but also including a few mixed sporting ‘marriages’ as well. Sadly, no potential outright winners amongst them when you look at the quality of the top ten, although that man ‘Banner’ can never be discounted. Around 10% of the entry is Scottish which is about right, especially considering the four and a half grand entry fee, although half of Belgium seems to be making the trip across the water plus a few from even further afield including the USA and Australia.

The full Timetable has been published on a separate page, but if you do venture out to watch, please make sure you act and park sensibly, as no doubt those who would seek to vilify rallying may well use bad or thoughtless behaviour as another cudgel to beat our sport over the head. On that basis you might want to buy a rally pack and/or tickets, details below.

The first car hits the road on Thursday afternoon the 25th November from Carlisle and is due to reach the Finish on later Sunday afternoon, the 29th.

Spectator Tickets can be purchased here with details of Car Parks:
