Ferries to Ireland
Should you require ferries to the event we are able to arrange crossings on most popular routes including Holyhead Dun Laoghaire and Stranraer to Belfast.from both Holyhead and Fishguard at very reasonable rates, it is possible to travel out on one route and return via another if this suits your travel plans.

Q: Do I need previous experience
It's simple - you don't need any specific previous experience but if you have never driven a rally before you may well find attendance at one of the CRA's Rallyschools to be a useful source of information regarding rally timing, map plotting etc. As well as these training days we also run a number of Classic Cups each year, these are weekend training events, run in Northern France and Belgium. Call us for further details. [top]

Q: What kind of cars compete?
The basic cut off date is 1968 but later cars of particular interest may be accepted at the organisers discretion. Older cars should not be disadvantaged as the emphasis is on good all round skills of driver and navigator rather than out and out performance. [top]

Q: Mechanical assistance
Service crews are not permitted so we run our own teams of mechanical experts - sweeps Peter and Betty Banham and Tony Fowkes and Andy Inskip have the best reputation going and there aren't many cars that they fail to get going. Often they can provide a temporary solution whilst new parts are obtained. [top]
