Save the date: Mercian Road Rally 18th/19th September 2021

Mercia Motor Sports are pleased to announce that planning has begun for this years GB Rally Prep Mercian Road Rally on the 18th and 19th of September 2021. As with previous years, we are grateful for the support of GB Rally Prep of Kettering.

Following the announcement on 22 February by Prime Minister Boris Johnson that the third lockdown imposed on 4th January will be lifted, formally organised outdoor sports for adults and under 18s can restart but should be compliant with guidance issued by national governing bodies, in this case, Motorsport UK.

Strict protocols may still apply in September, as motor sport plays its part in supporting the NHS and wider frontline community in keeping COVID infection rates under control. For this reason, we planning to utilise RallyAppLive for the registration of competitors and marshals, timing of the event and production of the results. RallyAppLive allows the event to proceed without any direct contact between organisers, marshals and competitors, thereby keeping both the crews and marshals COVID safe. 

In 2019, the GB Rally Prep Mercian Rally raised over £1,000 for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance. Due to the overwhelming support given by competitors and marshals in 2019, we will be supporting the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance again this year. 

As with all events like this, we rely on the efforts of as many marshals as possible. We would be grateful to hear if you are able and willing to support the event in September. If so, please contact myself on mercian.marshals@gmail.com
