Kick Start Rally of Derbyshire 8-9 April 2017
Message from our Sponsor:
Kick Start/Global Brands is pleased to be the sponsor of the Rally of Derbyshire for the twelfth consecutive year. Matlock Motor Club have organised this rally for 43 years and it has been proving ground for many top rally drivers and co-drivers and a must for the clubman. I am sure the organising team has once again planned a demanding and tough route for driver and navigator, and if the route takes you anywhere near Walton I shall be looking out for future stars!
Steve Perez Managing Director, Global Brands Ltd
A warm welcome to Matlock Motor Club’s 43rd Rally of Derbyshire, a round of the HRCR Premier, ANCC, ANEMCC, AWMMC, EMAMC, SD34 and ANWCC Championships.
Once again we receive the enthusiastic support of Steve Perez and his company Global Brands Ltd. We look forward to meeting all our “regulars” again this year and we especially welcome any newcomers to this long-established Derbyshire classic.
This year’s event will offer a very similar format to previous years - a competitive route with several sections timed to the second, straightforward navigation and the usual smattering of “whites”, including a visit to the Walton Lodge special test. Following changes to the MSA regulations, the event will be run under Nat. B Road Rally rules (i.e. not under a Navigational permit) with the special test completed before midnight. The route will be around 125 miles, with approximately 8 miles of smooth whites (all have been traversed in a standard road car) but, as always, a sumpguard is recommended for the more spirited. Navigation will comprise mainly tulips and all standard sections should be on the map before you start them.
As always we need plenty of marshals, so please encourage your family and friends to turn out – in return they will get drinks and snacks, plus a free breakfast if they marshal in the second half.
We are again raising funds for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance. Please try to make a contribution to this very worthy cause – you never know when any of us may need them! Either include a donation with your entry or use the collection box on the night of the rally.
Good luck and have fun!
