Scottish Single Venue Rally Championship
Our very successful SSVRC Championship has been approved by Motorsport UK for 2023 and Regulations for it can be found on our website at http://glenrothes-msc.com/2023/01/2023-ssvrc-regulations/, and competitors can register here: https://forms.gle/hTkERKZ4TyCY7y7h9. The registration fee is £10.00.
The events forming the Championship are: –
- Round 1 – Grant Construction Stages Rally at Knockhill – Sunday February 19th
- Round 2 – Albar Stages Rally at Kames Complex – Sunday May 14th
- Round 3 – Summer Stages Rally at Crail Airfield – Saturday 10th June
- Round 4 – Mach 1 Stages Rally at Machrihanish Airfield – Saturday/Sunday 8th & 9th July – this event is a double header with points being scored both days!
- Round 5 – Grab it by the Hall’s Rally at Kames Complex – Sunday 20th August
- Round 6 – Kingdom Stages Rally at Crail Airfield – Saturday
All rounds are spectator friendly, so you’ll have easy access to view the action.. even more so if you offer to assist in marshalling.. and its free too!
Due to the need to reduce spectator injury risk at motorsport events, marshalling is now the only way to get really close to the action! As I’m sure you all know, Motorsport simply cannot happen without the support of marshals, so if you if you haven’t marshalled previously or if you have but it was a long time ago, now’s your chance to change that and become a real part of the action! Feel you’re too inexperienced.. or out of touch with current practise? Don’t worry at all about that because you’ll be paired up with an experienced rally marshal who’ll be more than happy to show you the ropes.. For info, the Club in conjunction with Scottish Motorsport Training plan to run a marshal taster session at our Summer Stages event at Crail in June (as well as others), so there’ll be an opportunity to participate in a controlled and nurturing environment! Just let me know if you’re interested and I’ll make sure you get more info nearer the time.

and to conclude..
We look forward to welcoming you back to Fife and east central Scotland’s premier motorsport club in the not too distant future!!
