In 1990 The Leukaemia Historic Rally was created to raise funds for research. Now celebrating the 25th running it is with enormous thanks to those who have supported the rally as sponsors, marshals, landowners , residents and competitors that we have been far more successful than we envisaged 25 years ago. During this period the rally has been instrumental in over £80k going into Leukaemia research
The organisers continue to be grateful for the long running HRCR Clubman’s Championship status and this year are also pleased to welcome back the HRCR Premier Rally Championship. With this in mind the regulations are structured to welcome Historic and Targa competitors. The event will start and finish at the picturesque Chepstow race course and will provide approximately 120 miles of competition (including circa 18 substantial special tests) on the challenging country lanes of south east Wales.
Regulations will be published on Friday 13th January and will be available in the download section of the site.
Historic route instructions for previous editions of the event are also available on the site for new competitors that wish to see what the event is all about and how the straight forward navigation works.
The tests will be split up by approximately 6 regularity sections with no nonense navigation, and will be on a mixture of sealed and loose surfaces, once again making use of the race course together with the extensive smooth tracks of Coomb Farm and the now extended Crumband Plantation, that have been enjoyed by so many in the past. In addition there will be some new venues and other old favourites. Friday evening’s scrutineering and documentation will be held at the Hampton by Hilton hotel (J23A of the M4), and we are currently negotiating a discount rate for various bed and breakfast rooms. On Saturday morning late arriving crews will still be able to scrutineer and sign on at the racecourse before beginning the day’s adventure. Hot food and drink will be available in the café prior to the start. There will be a mid morning coffee halt, buffet lunch and when you return at the end of the day a meal will be provided, whilst results are finalised. As always we aim to provide a compact but enjoyable day of motorsport with the first car starting at approximately 0830 and arriving at the finish at around 1630. We aim to create an enjoyable, car friendly and above all sociable event that represents good value for money and will continue to raise funds for on going research into Leukaemia
The Leukaemia Historic Rally was introduced in 1990 and since then has prided itself on the number and quality of Special Tests it provides for competitors. Ecurie Cymraeg are aware of problems such an event may cause on public roads on a summer Saturday and works towards containing as much of the event as possible on private land. Navigation is kept relatively simple for all to enjoy the event.
The purpose of this event is to provide enjoyment for those involved while broadcasting awareness of the needs for research into Leukaemia, the need for blood and bone marrow donations so important for treatment and to raise funds for
The Leukaemia Research Appeal for Wales.
NOTICE OF APPRECIATION
All disciplines of Motor Sport rely upon Marshals, without whom Motor Sport would be impossible. The responsibilities of a Marshal vary from event to event, especially in the different forms of rallying. Primarily the Marshal’s duty is to the safety of the Competitor, the Spectator, general public and the sport – not a small responsibility by any means. Please appreciate what they are doing for you to enjoy yourself.
