As with all road rallies, the successful running of the Mercian is dependent on a large numbers of marshals. 
The Mercian relies purely on volunteers for marshals; we do not exercise a ‘no marshal, no start’ rule to competitors. 

We would be delighted if you could help us out by marshalling. If so, please register using the button below. There will be a free breakfast for all marshals.

If you are a family or group, it is a requirement that all members of the group/family register individually. It would be useful if you could indicate this in the General Notes section on registration. How about giving yourselves a team name?
Please note, Marshals will not be allowed to register on the night as all the controls will have been allocated by this stage.

As the Mercian is using Sapphire Solutions RallyAppLive, it is a requirement that at least one marshal at a control has a smart phone with the RallyAppLive App installed. 

RallyAppLive is free and can be download from the App Stores. The App is fairly straightforward to use but full details will be sent out after registration.

For other marshal related queries, please contact the Chief Marshal on

By registering as a marshal, you are agreeing to the current Motorsport UK Pre-Event Declaration.

Mercia Motor Sports are pleased to announce that planning is well in hand 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.


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.
