2011 Roger Albert Clark Rally support events unveiled
The support rallies all offer competitors a chance to be part of what many people call the best rally of the season, but without the time and financial commitment of contesting the overall rally. The support events also offer a local rally for competitors based in Yorkshire, South-West Scotland and the Scottish borders/Cumbria.
“I have tried to make the support events as user friendly as I can with as compact a route as possible at a very affordable cost,” said Rally Manager Colin Heppenstall. “To make it even more attractive, I am offering a special team rate on three of the rallies for those who can put together a three-car team.”
The four support events for the 2011 Roger Albert Clark Rally are:
The Kall Kwik Bradford Rally
42 stage miles; entry free £400 (cost per mile £9.60)
