We will try and answer some frequently asked questions below. If you don't find the answers you need, feel free to email or ring us:

Do I need a competitions license, helmet or other safety devices - 

No you need a helmet, but it does not need to comply with current Motorsport UK rules, flameproof overalls are not required. This is a tour event that falls outside the scope of the Motorsport UK competition rules, but a special license suitable for the event can be applied for free of charge.

I don't have a rally car, but would still like to take part - 

We have rally cars available to hire - fully prepared Ford Escort MK2 rally cars from £1250.00 for the event. A full Group 4 specification car from £1600.00. We also have a Vauxhall Chevette HS and an ex-Tony Pond MG Maestro available to hire.

We also allow a small number of classic cars and supercars to take part.

Please contact us about either of these options.

As a spectator, where can I see the cars? - 

The cars will arrive at Bath Racecourse on Friday afternoon and will be on display there during the evening, after returning from their trip into Hengrove Park for two stages in the dark. You will also be able to see the cars departing from 8.30a.m. on Saturday morning. If you want to see the cars in action, we recommend that you buy tickets to the spectator stages in Somerset. Tickets will be available in advance.

If attending the spectator stages, there will be  Catering, car displays and rally car demonstrations all day long. In all, the entrants will tackle the spectator stage four times during the day - so a great full day's entertainment.

What does taking part cost?

The cost of entering, driving the Saturday Tour and attending the Dinners on Friday and Saturday evenings, for both crew members, is £570.00, if entry is made and full payment received by 31st March 2023.

Entry after that date, should positions still be available, will be £610.00.

Whenever you enter, a deposit of £100.00 is required with the entry. Please ask for an entry form.


In 2019 we added an optional extra run on Sunday as well - this has not been repeated in 2021 or 2022 - as there will be a short Friday Evening Run instead, in the dark. Entrants do not have to take part on Friday if they don't wish to.

Where is the Saturday Evening Rally Dinner held and can we bring guests?

We hope, subject to COVID-19 regulations to hold the dinner at the Bath Racecourse Guest tickets are available, both individually with an entrant to the event, or for a corporate purchase of a table of ten. The dinner will be a fork buffet, to allow you to circulate and talk to different tables.

Do you have a recommended Rally Hotel?

We have various hotel options shown on the entry form. A number other hotels are available close by.

Other Hotels and Guesthouses are obviously also available, as are facilities for camping and caravanning.
