Rally of the Tests

Taking place in 2014, 30th October-2nd November

For over a decade, The Rally of the Tests has travelled the length and breadth of Great Britain seeking out classic test venues, driving the most scenic routes, tackling the more challenging roads and returning to many of the halts and starting and finishing points of rallies in the 1950’s. Guy Woodcock took on the Clerk of the Course role in 2012 and is now planning the 2014 route.Rally of the Tests

Traditionally the event runs over  three and a bit days, crews will enjoy wonderful scenery and fabulous traffic-free roads in classic rally territory in and around the UK.

As well as seeking out tradition, the “Tests” has also built a special atmosphere all of its own, combining closely fought, competitive motoring with a great social side. Rallying is a team sport created to test and be enjoyed by both driver and navigator. The objective of the Rally of the Tests is to present such a test for both crew members and perhaps more importantly the opportunity to have fun. We hope you will join us and when you reach the finish over a celebratory drink, you can determine if that objective has been achieved!

Rally of the Tests is a demanding event, the roads driven sometimes include loose, muddy tracks,HERO Colour Coding, ADVANCED they can also include forestry and private land that has a mixture of sealed and loose surfaces also. There is a chance that with the event running in late autumn/early winter, some adverse driving conditions will be encountered along the way. Navigation is mixed, with maps, roadbooks and cryptic references being included to present the route. Newcomers are welcome, but are advised to ensure their vehicle is well prepared. Taking part in less demanding events would be preferable prior to entering the adventure that is Rally of the Tests. The event is graded as Advanced.
