SACC Knockhill Autosolo 2016 on Sunday March 20th 

 

An Autosolo is an all forward Aototest through gates which are numbered and arrowed, we are using the whole of Paddock 2 at Knockhill so the tests should be fast and flowing.

Because there is no reverseing these events are ideal for either  road cars or hot hatches and newcomers to the sport should not find them too difficult.

For more info go to the GMSC website or contact Bill Creevy email bill.creevy@btinternet.com or tel. -07740374458.

Glenrothes MSC Trial New Rally Venue 

 
We are delighted to announce that we have been allowed access to a new venue and intend to run a single venue rally at the site.  The location is Condor near Arbroath, an active military site and former airfield.
 
We are running the Memorial Garden Junior Stages Rally on 19th March 2016 at the venue, and will additionally be running some senior crews under separate permit to allow us to test the venue.
 
Junior crews can access regs on this site and entry is via https://www.rallies.info/webentry/2016/gardenjunior/webentry.php  
 
Senior crews are by invitation only, this is being administered by Ian Park ianpark@blueyonder.co.uk
 
Marshals are very welcome, Graeme Brown is Chief Marshal brown.graemea@gmail.com
 
As an active military base there are very specific rules for entry to the venue, so unless you are attached to a competing crew, or you are an official or a marshal, there will be no access.

Please see the attachments below.

On behalf of Glenrothes MSC, it is our pleasure to welcome you to the 2016 Aquarius Navigational Rally, on the night of 23/24 January 2016. The rally will feature approx 120 miles of the best lanes in Fife & Lowland Perthshire, on OS Maps 58 & 59, based out of our fantastic new start venue, the Loch Leven Community Campus in Kinross. With a "no nonsense" pre-plot navigational format, we aim to encourage newcomers to night events, whilst still providing experienced crews with a rewarding night's sport (& a well-earned breakfast!)

Marshals will also be made very welcome, and we'll do our best to give you a great night's sport. We offer a free breakfast for all marshals manning two controls, cosy gloves and hats, and you'll also receive free Glenrothes MSC membership for 2016. This year we shall be the opening round of the 2016 SACC Navigational Rally Championship and - new for this year - a round of the 2016 HRCR Premier Rally Championship.

Rintoul Wins Again! 

Additional Files: 

John Rintoul successfully retained his "King of the Kingdom" title at the 2015 Kingdom Stages, held by Glenrothes MSC at Crail.  Navigated by Ross Hynd, John steered his Hyundai Accent WRC to first place, beating Bruce Edwards and Jim Smith in their Darrian by just over a minute.  Gary and Gordon Adam in their Escort took third spot, just 15 seconds further back.

 
Damp conditions in the morning led to drier surfaces later on, as 100 crews competed over 60 miles of airfield stages.  The event was the final round of the STRC Championship, with John Marshall confirmed as the winning driver.
 
Glenrothes MSC would like to thank all the competitors for their support and congratulate all the successful crews.  We would also like to thank the 100+ officials and marshals who assisted in the set up and running of the event, a fantastic team performance in conditions that were not always ideal!
 
The club intends to run two events at Crail again in 2016, but our next event will be the Aquarius Rally on 23rd January. 

 

Notice To All Attending The Kingdom Stages Rally 2015 

I have been asked by the RALLY COMMITTEE for Crail to point out the restrictive articles 166 and 167 of the Civil Aviation Authority with regards to small unmanned aircraft, ie drones, and they have expressly wished that these rules shall be strictly adhered to during the Curvy Kit Kingdom Stages Rally on 14th November.

Local police have been informed of the situation and have also requested that NOBODY attempts such from the roadside , which could lead to accident on a public highway.  

Thanks,

Ian Park
