FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
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 none of those things. This is a tour event that falls outside the scope of the Motorsport UK competition rules. However, we recommend the use of a helmet, at least, on the off-road venues.
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 £1000.00 for the event.
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 late afternoon and will be on display there during the evening. You will also be able to see the cars departing from Bath Racecourse from 8.30a.m. on Saturday morning. If you want to see the cars in action, we recommend that you buy tickets to the Rally Festival, which will take place near Cirencester. Tickets will only be available in advance. If you are unable to attend the Rally Festival, the whole event will be live streamed to ticket holders as well.
If attending the Rally Festival, 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 £490.00, if entry is made and full payment received by 31st March 2021.
Entry after that date, should positions still be available, will be £540.00.
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 is not repeated in 2021 - 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 in the Georgian splendour of Bath's Assembly - a backdrop frequently seen on both TV and Film during period dramas. Guest tickets are available, both individually with an entrant to the event, or for a corporate purchase of a table of ten. However, if, as in 2020, such a dinner is not possible, an alternative complying with social distancing requirements is also available.
Do you have a recommended Rally Hotel?
We have various hotel options shown on the entry form. We recommend the MacDonald Bath Spa Hotel or the Francis Hotel within Bath itself, or the Best Western LImpley Stoke House on the edge of Bath which gives a lower cost option.
Other Hotels and Guesthouses are obviously also available, as are facilities for camping and caravanning.
2018 and 2019 Event DVDs (or memory stick if preferred) lasting some 40 minutes now available at £19.99 plus £1.75 p & p. or both for £35.00 plus £1.75 p & p. If participants wish to purchase, please add your car running number along with your registration number and we will include all of your footage before the main film. The personalised DVD will cost an extra £10.00.
